The Red Devils moved up to second place in the Premier League with a hard-fought 1-0 win at Old Trafford, with Marcus Rashford popping up with a 93rd-minute winner.
Wolves made it very difficult for United, particularly in the first half, with Solskjaer opting to tweak his system at half-time to halt their counter-attack, with Telles the casualty as he was replaced by Luke Shaw.
Asked if the Brazilian left-back had picked up a knock, Solskjaer told MUTV: ‘No, it was more of a shift in the positions and different dynamic again. Alex should be okay.’
The United boss was delighted to claim all three points at the death against a dangerous opponent, praising both Eric Bailly and Nemanja Matic for their defensive displays.
‘We had to defend well because you know on the counter-attacks especially they’re always so dangerous,’ he continued.
‘We adjusted a few positions in the second half to stop their counters and I think it worked. Then David [de Gea] had to make a save and he made it, and it was a good one, an important one for us.’
The games keep coming thick and fast for United, with the Red Devils next in action on New Year’s Day against Aston Villa, and Solskjaer hopes the win over Wolves will give energy and momentum to his players.
He added: ‘Friday night again. Hopefully they don’t overdo their celebrations on Thursday night, New Year’s Eve.
‘But of course they’re happy now with the win, the confidence that gives you, the mentality and attitude that gives you, so they’ll recover well and be ready for Friday night.’
