Arsene Wenger told Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to enjoy his evening after Manchester United dramatically beat Atalanta in the Champions League on Wednesday night, because there is plenty to worry about in the immediate future.

The Red Devils bounced back from two goals behind to snatch a 3-2 win over the Italians at Old Trafford, with second half goals from Marcus Rashford, Harry Maguire and Cristiano Ronaldo sealing the memorable victory.

With one win in five matches coming into the match, Solskjaer was under increasing pressure and another loss would have put his future in question, however, he has dodged that bullet for now.

Wenger knows that one win is not enough for the Manchester United manager though, and Solskjaer will need two or three results to give him the ‘peace’ in the job which he needs.

‘He was under huge pressure and he got away with it and he’s relieved. I can feel how he feels,’ the former Arsenal boss told beIN Sports.

‘Enjoy the night, do the press conference, have a nice dinner with friends and enjoy the night. Tomorrow it starts again, you have a big game in front of you and the worry starts again.

‘The impatience with public and fans around Man United is becoming bigger and very quickly this season. That was not the case before, so it’s the first time he faces that situation.

‘This win tonight is important for him. If he can add another result he can have some peace again. But you need, when you’re under that kind of pressure, to get two or three results to get peace again around you. That’s very important in this job.’

The victory over Atalanta seems vital as the Red Devils head into a perilous run of fixtures in the Premier League.

On Sunday they host in-form Liverpool, then travel to Tottenham six days later before welcoming Manchester City to Old Trafford on 6 November. Solskjaer will be hoping that he still has some peace after those testing contests.
