Who is Noah Solskjaer?

The 19-year-old is a midfielder, looking to make a name for himself in his own right.

Unlike his forward legend father Ole, Noah is less about scoring goals and more about setting up attacks, with the youngster’s manager Christian Michelsen claiming he is trying to base his game on Michael Carrick.

The youngster is currently rising through the ranks at Kristiansund – the hometown club of his father.

Will he play against Man Utd?

Noah Solskjaer is tipped to make his mark this season, but could be set for a remarkable debut against his father’s side Man Utd.

His coach Michelsen said ahead of Tuesday’s match: “He has lots of skills and football understanding – Noah has gone to a good school.

“He and several of these youngsters have been with us for a while.

“We knew they were good football players, but what is fun is that we see that they are taking the level more and more.

“It’s great for them and fun for us to see them grow well.”

Noah began the game on the bench – but came on to face his father’s team in the final minutes.
