Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be seeking to pull another surprise in the competition weeks after stunning Paris Saint-Germain in the round of 16 to qualify for the quarter finals.

However, unlike the PSG fixture, the Red Devils will face Barcelona while in bad shape, having dropped form in the recent days.

The Premier League side has won only once in their last four matches, losing to Arsenal in a league match and twice to Wolves in the league and the FA Cup.

As such, Solskjaer believes his side will need to work on 'many things' when they face the La Liga giants.

The Norwegian tactician further revealed his team will have a couple of days to reflect on their recent poor run before turning their attention to their massive European encounter.

"Oh, many, many things we have to improve, of course, because they are a top, top side," Solskjaer was quoted saying.

"But we'll use one or two days now to analyse and recover. And we'll prepare for Barcelona, which will be a fantastic challenge for the club and for the team," he added.
