Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confessed, his side’s display was the sloppiest he has seen in a long time, admitting his squad has mentality issues.

Man Utd have been all-around horrible since the start of the season. The red devils recording yet another defeat against Newcastle, courtesy of a powerful strike from Matty Longstaff.

The fixture was as lackluster as it gets, but this will matter little to Newcastle, as the magpies finally got one over Manchester United and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Manchester United sit 12th on the Premier League table, just two points away from relegation. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits his side has been disappointing so far but hopes the international break will give them time to better prepare for what’s to come.

“We’re disappointed,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports. “We did lack quite a few key players but that’s no excuse. The players worked hard and ran their socks off but at the moment we’re in a place we’re not used to.

“Some of the boys lack a little bit of composure and we don’t create enough chances to win a game of football. They stay together as a team but we don’t create.

“Luckily for us, it’s now the international break. We get time to evaluate what’s gone on over these eight games. We will sit down, hopefully, we’ll get a few players back.

“It’s my responsibility. I need to sort their heads out. Young boys lacking confidence – they need some help from experienced players and staff.

“They’re human and they want to do well. They need to see the results of their hard work and we’re not getting those results so that’s going to affect them.

“The first half was the sloppiest we’ve been. In the second half we dominated but we didn’t create.

“We’ve not changed a lot. We’ve played the same way and stuck to our principles. The players are working hard. We’ve had six out of the Chelsea game and that’s going to affect results. But we’ll work hard and get the quality back.”
