Ole Gunnar Solskjaer heaped praise on Jesse Lingard for his brilliant performance in Manchester United's 3-1 win over Arsenal.

The United caretaker boss, who said he will "look after" the Old Trafford youth product, sealed his eighth win on the trot - since replacing Jose Mourinho at the helm - as they knocked the Gunners out of the FA Cup on Friday. 

"Jesse's a big game-player," Solskjaer said as the Mirror quoted. "He's shown that for England, for us. He always pops up with goals, was it last year counter-attack goal against Arsenal?

"So Jesse is someone we never, never hesitate to put in a Man United team and he's been brought through this system, he knows what this means, he knows the club, he knows this history, he knows all the counter-attacking goals we've scored against Arsenal.

"He knows everything about the club and he's someone we'll look after."
