Man Utd boss Solskjaer tells Neville: You're wrong!

The defeat at Arsenal last weekend was in fact the Red Devils' first domestic loss under Solskjaer, ending a run of nine straight away wins. It's the poorest performance since I've come here.

The visitors created little of note until Marcus Rashford's 95th-minute consolation goal and needed several fine saves from Sergio Romero to deny Wolves before Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota scored in quick succession. "It was a big step backwards, I have to say".

United will return to action on Saturday 30 March with an important Premier League match against Watford at Old Trafford, with a victory clearly needed in the fight to finish in the top four.

"You're always measured on results but we played a good game against Arsenal", he told a media conference. It's very disappointing that we're not in the semis.

Solskjaer will have two weeks to mull over the performance while a number of his players head off to join their national teams.


Solskjaer continued: "Some of the players go away with the national teams and they'll enjoy the break".

"He's probably got his reasons why he left, so you've got to ask him", he added.

"They get a great starting position and when they win the ball back, they get at you at such speed and pace". We have so much to play for.

Goals from Granit Xhaka and Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang condemned Manchester United to their first league defeat since Solskjaer's appointment as caretaker boss back in December, however, the Norwegian said that despite the result, he was pleased with the performance from his side. There are so many highlights to look forward to. "When they come back again, we'll give it a good go".
