Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists his Manchester United players are mentally strong enough as they prepare for three vital games.

Solskjaer and his troops have no time to dwell on their Barcelona defeat with three crucial clashes in the space of eight days coming up, starting with their trip to Goodison Park.

The Manchester derby at Old Trafford on Wednesday is then followed by Chelsea’s visit on Sunday week in a run of fixtures that could go a long way towards defining United’s campaign.

Solskjaer, who revealed midfielder Ander Herrera is back in training, said: ‘You have to get on with it quickly, just accept we’re out of the Champions League.

There is no shame in going out to Barcelona.

‘We spoke about it after the game and said we want to be here again.

To be back at these stadiums, we need to get among the top four.

‘It’s a fantastic week to look forward to.

The players are in a good state mentally and they’re strong mentally.’
