And after the game, Solskjaer had nothing but good things to say about him.
“Jesse has come back, has been smart, he wants to fight for his place and there is nothing better than seeing players fight for their place.
“What he did at the end of last season, that’s the real Jesse, that’s what we’re capable of and I think towards the end we saw that sometimes we were missing some options. Jesse is currently in the planning stage.
