Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits Anthony Elanga is giving him a selection problem.

The 19-year-old had been earmarked for a loan move this summer after making his first-team debut last season.

Elanga scored his third goal in as many games in the 2-2 draw with Brentford on Wednesday, and speaking after the game, Solskjaer was full of praise for the Swedish attacker.

"He's giving me a great problem if you like, as you say, players who score goals, who've got that enthusiasm, energy," Solskjaer told MUTV.

"We want to play a pressing game, there are no thrills, if you ask him to run over to the cricket ground and get us a drink at half time, he'd do it. That's the type of lad he is."

The Norwegian added: "He's done himself the world of good. We know he's a good player, we know he's a good lad.

"He works so hard, he's always smiley, bright, asking what more he needs to do, he's so hungry to improve and get better. He can play wide left, wide right, up front.. so anywhere along the front line. He's going to be an asset."
