Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted that Manchester United’s impressive unbeaten away record is irrelevant when his side aren’t winning games.
United extended their unbeaten run away from home in the Premier League to 19 games in the 1-1 draw against West Brom at the Hawthorns.
But the Reds will rue missing the chance to close the gap on leaders Manchester City furthers and have now dropped points to two relegation favourites in three weeks after the home defeat to Sheffield United.
Bruno Fernandes’ stunning effort on the stroke of half-time earned the Reds their draw but United failed to create many clear-cut opportunities for a winner after the break.
Solskjaer believes there were some positives to take from the Hawthorns after some good individual performances.
Ultimately, however, it is was another hugely frustrating day for the Norwegian boss as his side struggled to make inroads against Sam Allardyce’s defensive, resolute approach.
The United boss added that the Reds are in ‘desperate need’ for three points and he was disappointed by the outcome of the result.
