Ole Gunnar Solskajer admitted that he might have to change things for the second leg after losing 1-0 at home to Barcelona in the Champions League quarter-finals.

Manchester United failed to get a shot at the target, the first time they have not done so at home in the Champions League since the Opta statistics began, since He lost a goal at home to Lionel Messi and his teammate.

United fell behind in the 12th minute when Messi crossed for Luis Suárez and his header back through the goal was pbaded by David De Gea by Luke Shaw.

Barça was far from being the best and Messi never seemed to recover from a blow to the nose of Chris Smalling in the first half, with the expert of Spanish football. Guillem Balague alleging that the Argentine was "actively resting".

Solskjaer told BT Sport: "The goal was a bit lucky, but it was a great liaison between the two forwards." They did not create too many opportunities and neither did we.

"Scott McTominay was fantastic, every time he plays for us he's getting better, he's a great athlete, he wins his challenges and he gets up quickly, he started installing us to be fair.

"We play a good team, we know you have to defend a lot without the ball and you can be tired when you have the opportunity to do it yourself, we go there with something in my mind, we have to score.

"We did the best we could against Messi, we kept our form well, I could have gone both ways, I do not think we've reached the goal and that's a disappointment, we're going there with the work to be done but the possibilities.

"We are playing against a great team, it is a difficult task, we will go there with the knowledge we can score there.

"We will try to do something different, because we have to go there and score a couple of goals, we have to stay positive."
