They revealed that United were comfortably superior in the game, enjoying 64 per cent of possession and creating 17 shots, seven of which were on target.

For fans of such metrics, United's Expected Goals number was 2.47 to West Brom's 0.50, meaning they did enough to score more than two goals.

But the plan should be simple against the West Broms of this world.

No wonder much of the post-match praise was reserved for Albion keeper Sam Johnstone, whose saves to deny Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial were right out of the top drawer.

Solskjaer claimed he had as little as 20 minutes to properly prepare for West Brom.
