Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Didn't Hold Back Explaining Why He Dropped Jesse Lingard And Andreas Pereira

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sent out a clear message to Jesse Lingard and Andreas Pereira are both were omitted from the matchday squad for the 3-0 win over Watford.

Much to the frustration of United fans, the pair have been incredibly underwhelming yet have regularly been picked this season.

But after poor displays in the 1-1 draw with Club Brugge on Thursday night, Solskjaer displayed some ruthlessness in deciding to drop the duo for Sunday's game at Old Trafford.

And he's told MUTV that both players that need to start performing or else they will continue to be overlooked.

Solskjaer's comments come after new signing Bruno Fernandes produced another impressive Man of the Match display in the No.10 role for the Red Devils.

He opened the scoring with his first goal for the club from a penalty that he won and also laid on a second assist in a red shirt when he set up Mason Greenwood's 11th strike of the season in the second half.
