Ole Gunnar Solskjaer won’t hold a grudge against David De Gea, after the Spaniard gifted Chelsea a goal at Old Trafford, which eventually saw the points between both teams.
Both clubs went into the game, knowing that a win would be vital to the race to finish in top four, and qualify for the Champions League next season.
Man Utd have just two matches left, and while the manager admits United lost the rhythm, whilst De Gea could have done better. He is hoping there is still a chance the red devils could make it to the top four.
“No. David has been a fantastic keeper at this club, his reaction after City was good and I was confident in him. He knows he could do better with their goal but it’s one of those things again.” He told BBC.
“We did the same against City and started well but today we never found our rhythm again. We needed the tempo to be higher, with a higher intensity but we never managed to get that.”
He added: “You never know, we felt we needed to win this game. The boys started fantastic, created chances, got in behind and got the lead and then second half we never managed to get the quality and tempo back up again.
“It was a good game of football, both could have won it but probably a draw is fair result. They’re probably more happy than we are with the draw, it’s one of those days and we must dust ourselves down and win the next two – you never know as points are being dropped left, right and centre.”
