Disappointed Ole: We played below par against Liverpool
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer felt his side were not at their best and did not deserve to claim all three points at Anfield
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says his Manchester United side didn’t deserve to win at Liverpool despite the visitors creating the stalemate’s best chances.
Although United stay at the top of the Premier League after drawing 0-0 at Anfield, Solskjaer was disappointed by his team’s display.
“We didn’t deserve the three points because we didn’t play well enough,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports. “We didn’t impose ourselves on the game, especially first half. We grew in the game and thought it was there to win in the second half and created two massive chances
“We can play better than this, we know that. We can be more composed; we can have the ball more. We had to defend really often, and we gave the ball away too often. A couple of things we need to improve on.”
United produced more shots on target than their hosts and twice went close to opening the scoring in the second half when first Bruno Fernandes and then Paul Pogba were stopped by Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson.
“I’ve got to be honest and say I’m disappointed at the moment,” added Solskjaer. “With the injuries they have had lately, you want to come here and get a result. We didn’t, but a point might be OK if we win the next one.”
