Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had particular praise for Luke Shaw and Anthony Martial following their derby defeat of Manchester City on Sunday.

Solskjaer's side ended City's 21-game winning run with a 2-0 victory at the Etihad.

Bruno Fernandes scored from the spot in just the second minute and Luke Shaw doubled their lead just after the break.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Solskjaer reacted to the win.

“Delighted. I’d say you get the first goal, we were on the front foot for 10-15 minutes but then the last half hour of the first half I felt we played too much on the result.

"Sometimes when you defend against strong teams inevitably they create chances.

"We had to get to half time to get hold of everyone again.

“The second goal was magnificent. Luke [Shaw] just showed what he is about. He was a massive doubt this morning and had to go through a fitness test to play. What a performance.

“I thought we defended really well, we were more like ourselves with the ball attacking-wise.

“Anthony Martial was man of the match.That was the Anthony we know, strong positive and taking players on. Delighted for him.

The result means that United go back to second in the table, but are 11 points behind City.

Solskjaer refused to get drawn into title talk following the game and said his focus was simply on his side and improvements they can make going forward.

“They [Manchester City] are so far ahead you can’t really think about anything but making sure we win our games and be better than last year.

"We were third so we want to move up the table of course.”
