And how he responds is something only time will tell.
Speaking before the game against Brighton, Solskjaer admitted he has two great goalkeepers at his disposal.
“I have the great option of two top goalkeepers and it’s a pleasure to have them here,” he said.
“We’ve got hopefully nine plus five games to go – we want to go all the way in the Europa League – so I’m sure you’ll see both of them playing in goal for us.
“I understand the question and the narrative in the media, that where there’s potential tension and controversy, that’s where everyone wants to hear a comment from me.
“I’ve got great options, they are top goalkeepers but both of them want to play as much as possible and that will be decided on merit, we will have to think who’s going to give us a win on any given day.
