Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says his players need to be strong and ‘take it’ after conceding a late equaliser against Southampton as the game finished 2-2 at O.
The Manchester United manager admits his team didn’t deserve three points tonight.
Solskjaer put that down to Southampton’s performance and the fact United didn’t have any passing rhythm throughout the game.
He doesn’t think the players were tired, though they sat back at 2-1 and looked leggy at times, with David de Gea pulling off a brilliant save before stoppage time. This may come as a result of fielding the same starting line-up in five consecutive games but I find it hard to criticise Solskjaer for that when most fans were calling for him to continue with the same winning formula. Unfortunately it wasn’t to be tonight…
Solskjaer refused to be drawn on VAR conversation after Oriol Romeu took out Mason Greenwood in the first-half. We thought it was a red card.
