Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has broken his silence over his side’s embarrassing performance against Liverpool on Sunday. His side were second best all over the pitch against their bitter rivals and in truth, were lucky to come away with only five goals conceded.
Jurgen Klopp’s side took an early lead in the game through Naby Keita and suddenly, the floodgates were open as the Merseyside club cruised to back-to-back victories at Old Trafford, scoring nine goals in two games, having previously failed to win in their last five attempts at the Theatre of Dreams.

“This is the worst feeling, you feel rock bottom,” Solskjaer said after the game, as seen above. “But the feeling we’ve had that we’re getting to where we want to be has been there. But then in the last few weeks, we’ve hit a brick wall.
“The results haven’t come, we performances haven’t come. We’ve conceded too many goals, we’ve conceded too many easy goals and that’s a concern
“We’re all low. I can’t say now that I’ve felt any worse than this because this is the lowest I’ve been. Of course, the results lately haven’t been good enough and that brings doubts in anyone’s mind, probably. I’ve got to keep strong and I do believe in what we’ve been doing.”
Stretty News Verdict
The thumping against Liverpool does not reflect well on the Manchester United manager who, despite doing a good job over the last two years, will be judged on where his side finds itself now.
They are without a win in their last four games and the embarrassment against Liverpool is the latest in a string of below-par performances.
