Ole Gunnar Solskjaer mocks Alan Shearer on live TV after Chelsea v Man Utd

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer enjoys his side's win over Chelsea

Doubts were raised for the first time about Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after Manchester United's defeat to Paris Saint-Germain last Tuesday.

Solskjaer's men went into their Champions League tie at Old Trafford high in confidence, but lost for the first time under the Norwegian manager as they were defeated 2-0.

Following that result, the Red Devils had another tough game as they travelled to Chelsea on Monday night to contest their FA Cup fifth round tie.

But they made up for the disappointing result last week by defeating Chelsea 2-0.

Ander Herrera opened the scoring after 31 minutes, heading home a brilliant Paul Pogba cross.

And Pogba would put his name on the scoresheet just before the break, with his powerful header finding a way past Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Solskjaer would have been delighted with how his team bounced back to disappointment against PSG.

Understandably, he was in good spirits when reflecting on the game.

And, in his post match press conference with the BBC, Solskjaer couldn't help reminding Shearer that his United side beat Shearer's Newcastle in 1999.

Watch it below:

Shearer did not take it too well, replying: "Thanks Ole, I was having a good night until then!"

Quality stuff. Football fans loved Solskjaer's comment.

Solskjaer said that the victory for his side was a 'massive result' and said that his team was 'fantastic'.

"We had criticism after the PSG game and everyone did what we asked tonight," said United's interim boss, per the BBC.

"The performance tonight was fantastic, our tactics worked.

"We asked our midfielders to press higher and get into the box and it worked. The defending in the second half was fantastic.

"Chelsea are a good team, they have their way of playing but Juan Mata did a fantastic job on Jorginho and we were absolutely perfect defensively. We kept a clean sheet.

"It is a massive result."
