Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has stated that he hopes the club’s Europa League glory against Partizan will serve as a platform from which the Red Devils can work their way to a good run for the rest of the season.
The Old Trafford outfit beat the visitors 3-0 in a match that highlighted goals from Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial. United are currently placed 10th in the league table with just 13 points from 11 games.
Solskjaer, however, believes that his side could use their win against Partizan as a platform to catapult themselves in the league.

“That's the foundation, it's a platform to perform from," Solskjaer said, as per Goal.
"We know we've worked on defending this year and have been solid, we just want to see more of this in the Premier League. Score goals, create chances and see smiles on the players' faces.”
He also added that the team were fantastic for most of the game but were sloppy in the end as they were thinking about the match against Brighton on Sunday.
"Parts of the game were really good, parts of the performance were really high quality. You want to see five or six or seven [goals] but at times I think maybe some players started thinking of Sunday, started to recover a bit and we were a bit sloppy at the end but at times we looked really dangerous.”
