Solskjaer said after the game: “Jesse has come back, he’s been bright and he wants to fight for his place.
“There’s nothing better than seeing players willing to fight for their place. Of course, what he did towards the end of the season, that is the true Jesse.
“That’s what we know he is capable of. I think we saw towards the end [of our own season] that we lacked maybe some options at times.”
