Solskjær (continued)
"Going forward, attacking both as a team and the way we played, we won’t get as many chances to attack against these as we’ve had before so we’ve got to be ready for when we got hold of the ball and play well with it because Wembley is a decent sized pitch."
Solskjær quotes
Solskjær also spoke to the press ahead of their visit to London:

"You always adapt to any opponent, we play one of the best teams in the league, have to be aware of their strengths but we need to attack teams, that’s our strength as well."

Pochettino (continued)
"I think of course after Mourinho the reality is that they've won five games in a row.

"Always you know that when a new person arrives, or manager, it's like refreshing the atmosphere at the club, and for many players that maybe didn't play with another manager, it's an option to play more."

Pochettino quotes
Ahead of the clash, Pochettino spoke to the media about the upcoming clash:

"I think from the distance it's so difficult. It's been so busy, involved in our games. Of course, I cannot be unfair with both managers."

Also, Spurs ended their four-year winless streak at Old Trafford back in August as they ran riot and put three past what was then Jose Mourinho's men.
