Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was disappointed that his team had no solution to the problems encountered in the shocking 2-1 loss to Sheffield United at home.
The Red Devils missed the chance to overtake Premier League title rivals Manchester City at the top of the table after suffering a surprise defeat at Old Trafford breaking a 13-match unbeaten run.
Solskjaer’s players were defeated by goals from Kean Bryan in the first half and one from Oliver Burke in the second half. Captain Harry Maguire’s header was not enough to secure points for United.
Solskjaer after the match complained about the clumsy defense of the team, which contributed to the sudden loss.
“It was disappointing. Below the lowest level, of course. “We started well, but then we conceded the goal from the first attack, from a corner kick”, Solskajer initially said.
“We had all the possession, but when you concede two bad goals it will always be difficult.”
“We did not create enough. “We put pressure on them, but we could not penetrate enough behind them and create big enough opportunities to score enough goals.”
“We did not lack inspiration, we lacked magic. “There was no room to fight, they defended well and he plays well.”
“We did not have the right ideas or solutions. “The level of performance was not right, the tempo was not, the quality was not.”
“There were spaces we did not use and chances we could have done more in the first half, but when you are 0-1, you are always watching the game.”
“They went deep back and defended really well. “I have to be fair enough to say that they defended very well and we had no choice but to open them.” / Telegraphy /
