With fifth place securing qualification for the Champions League if second-placed Manchester City's European ban is upheld, United are in a strong position to return to the continent's elite club competition.
He then applauded the Spanish No1 as United kept a clean sheet and closed the gap on Chelsea to two points.
BRIGHTON, England－Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said Bruno Fernandes has brought a winning mentality to Manchester United after his brace inspired an impressive 3-0 win at Brighton on Tuesday. Wan-Bissaka played an intelligent acute pass into the path of a galloping Greenwood, who breaks into the Brighton box with a venomous speed and brilliant stepovers to bamboozle the defenders and scored quite brilliantly in the bottom corner.
The security behind the attacking third gives a lot of opportunity to the forwards to express themselves freely, and Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, and Mason Greenwood did that exactly.
Speaking after the game, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hailed Fernandes by saying: "I knew there was a leader there, a victor and we knew we needed that type of player". He's got a knack of that, he can go inside or outside, he is developing into a fine player.
"We controlled the game throughout the 90 minutes and performed some really, really good football out there, so I'm very, very happy".
"I knew there was a leader there, a victor and we knew we needed that type of player".
"Kevin de Bruyne is the best midfield player in the Premier League, if not the world", he said on Sky Sports.
"He's a special talent, a special kid we're going to look after and try to develop into a top player", Solskjaer told a news conference.
The Norwegian manager has also insisted that the lockdown has helped Greenwood to a great extent.
Manchester United's Mason Greenwood celebrates his goal over Astana in their UEFA Europa League match on 19 September 2019. "He will be exciting to follow", added Solskjaer.
