Manchester United missed an opportunity to climb over Tottenham Hotspur on the league table and further push for a Champions League place, as the red devils fell short to Wolves at the Molineux Stadium.
Solskjaer’s reign as permanent manager has signalled series of bad performances, and tuesday’s loss was United’s third in the last four matches.
However, Solskjaer simply waved off the loss, saying United threatened enough, only failing to eventually find the net, as Wolves rounded off a 2-1 win against a ten man United team.
“It’s one of those days where we’ve done more than enough to score three or four goals,” Solskjaer told Skysports.
“Some great chances and some fantastic saves by the keeper [Rui Patricio]”
“Wolves deserve credit, because they scored goals when they pounced upon our mistakes. I thought the lads played well today. We created chances, with ten men as well.”
“They scored with their first chance after the sending off. That’s about 20, 25 minutes after the sending off. The boys have done exactly what they should do but we conceded goals after sloppy mistakes and we didn’t score ourselves.”
“If I’m not mistaken, their goalkeeper made three or four really great saves so we’ve done enough to win this game, but then again you don’t always get what you deserve.”
Speaking to the media after the game, Solskjaer was quite confident United can return to the top four, revealing how many points the red devils will need to qualify for the Champions League.
“We need 15 points from the last six games now so we don’t have much room for losses.”
“I don’t think there’s been a kickback after the good results or any kind of re-setting.”
Manchester United will be back in action against Spanish side Barcelona on Wednesday (10th April), as the Champions League convenes for the first leg of the Quarter finals at Old Trafford.
