Marouane Fellaini is the only player to score for United at home in the Champions League this season and Solskjaer has warned his frontline they need to improve.

"We need to score goals", Solskjær said.

"We're playing games that United used to be in, playing for the top four and the Champions League semi-final: it used to be challenging for the league and the quarter-finals, semi-finals".

"If you want to win, if you want to play at Man United you have to have a personality", Solskjaer said.

"That's the 100 million dollar question in football, who can score the goals", the Norwegian said.

'It's against the best club of the last 10 or 15 years.

"He's been injured, he's not had a fantastic season so far and let's hope he can end the season great".

Twenty years on from his dramatic injury-time victor in Barcelona that sealed Manchester United's Treble, Solskjaer is hoping to mastermind another comeback. "If we give players like (Luis) Suarez, (Philippe) Coutinho, (Lionel) Messi, or (Arturo) Vidal time on the ball, they can hurt you".

United must improve from the first leg when they did not manage a single shot on target as Luke Show's own goal proved to be the difference maker. "It was not that long ago and we are one goal better off [than we were then]".

The Red Devils were criticised by some for their cautious approach to playing Barcelona in the first leg and Solskjaer is hoping for a better performance this time out.

Barcelona have progressed from 39 of their 41 European ties in which they won the first leg away from home - the exceptions were against FC Koln in the 1980-81 UEFA Cup, and against Metz in the 1984-85 Cup Winners' Cup.

His wages have caused a split in the United dressing room and Solskjaer admits if Sanchez gets some game time in the Nou Camp he needs to deliver the goods.

Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Barcelona are one leg through to the semifinals of this season's Champions League following their slim victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Alexis Sanchez was named among United's travelling contingent.
