“We played into their hands” – Solskjaer makes honest assessment of Man Utd loss to Wolves

Wolvew beat Manchester United

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits Manchester United were awful, as the red devils crashed out of the FA Cup against Wolverhampton wanderers.

Manchester United’s loss to Wolves, means Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has now suffered his first back to back defeat since taking over at Old Trafford, as the disappointed manager pointed out several flaws in the game.

Raul Jimenez was the first to wriggle one past Sergio Romero, before Jota turned Luke Shaw inside out to score a second. Marcus Rashford got one back for the visitors, but the lack of “quality in the last third” cost United the win; Solskajer told BBC Sport.

“We played into their hands really. We were not bright enough, not sharp enough.

“We started too slowly and played into their hands. Our possession wasn’t bright enough and quick enough, so it’s disappointing.

“I didn’t think we had enough quality in the last third, enough combination play. We had decent dominance with the ball in the first half but that doesn’t help if you give the ball away and they can counter.

“This was a big step backwards, mainly because of the quality of the possession and the passing.

“Arsenal was good, we just couldn’t score. Today was poor, the poorest we’ve played to be honest.

“I’m here until the summer, we’ve got loads to play for in the league and the Champions League.”

On Man Utd’s Dalot penalty call: “From one angle it looks a nailed on penalty, from the other not so sure.”
