(CNN)Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says his team will do its best to keep within the new Covid-19 guidelines as the Premier League looks to clampdown on celebrations.

The league reminded teams that "unnecessary contact, particularly between opposition clubs including handshakes, high fives and hugs must be avoided" and that swapping of shirts after the game is now prohibited.

United players celebrated by hugging each other on Tuesday after Paul Pogba scored the only goal of the game.

"It's an emotional game but we have to understand the players when they celebrate but we also understand the concern nowadays for a bit less emotion and less hugging," Solskjaer told reporters.

According to the BBC, Premier League chief executive Richard Masters wrote a letter to clubs saying he was concerned to see players ignore social distancing measures over the weekend.
