Wednesday’s historic 3-1 Champions League victory in Paris – to overturn a 2-0 first-leg loss – was the biggest of the lot.

Solskjaer, 46, and his squad looked to be still basking in the result in training today.

He and United’s stars – who were slammed as “arrogant” in their celebrations over PSG – can be seen grinning from ear-to-ear in pictures taken at Carrington.

They will hope to be in the same good spirits after Sunday’s Premier League clash at Arsenal.

Solskjaer has been boosted by the return of Anthony Martial, while Nemanja Matic and Ander Herrera are close to a comeback.

He said: “Anthony will be available and hopefully we’ll have Nemanja and/or Ander ready as well.

“We’re looking better for it. They just need to have another couple of days training with the team. They’ve done well with their recovery work.”
