It has been a disappointing night for Manchester United and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, losing to Sheffield United in the Premier League.
The Manchester United manager said magic was missing on the night but it’s an unacceptable defeat for a side that aims to be challenging for the Premier League title.
Solskjaer said in his BT Sport interview that there would be no inquests after the match. The job for this side now is to move on and get back to winning ways against Arsenal on Saturday.
Sheffield United’s first goal shouldn’t have stood after David de Gea was fouled inside the box by Billy Sharp.
On top of that, Anthony Martial had a goal disallowed which Solskjaer said was another incorrect decision by referee Peter Bankes.
First goal? "Foul."
At the other end? "No foul."
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was not happy with two key decisions but admitted Man Utd were lacking the magic to get a result against Sheffield United.

Solskjaer was not happy with the result as it definitely takes away from the momentum we’ve built in recent months. The Red Devils were expected to win tonight and ultimately looked like they were complacent throughout.
That’s not good enough because these players have no right to be complacent. They are still trying to win the Premier League against all of the odds, but tonight won’t help them achieve that this season.
A reality check for Solskjaer and his players.
