Manchester United ended yet another Premier League tie against a top-six side without scoring.
Over the season the Red Devils have scored just once in their meetings against top-six opposition.
That too was a goal in the 6-1 drubbing at the hands of Tottenham at Old Trafford. Ole Solskjaer recognized where his team is falling short.
When asked about the game, Solskjaer told the club’s website, “We’re not scoring enough goals, that’s for sure. We came away and it’s another good clean sheet but the next step for this team is to win these games and score a goal.
“We needed to get three points and, of course, we should have had a penalty, which probably I would back Bruno [Fernandes] every day of the week. We didn’t have the right weight of pass, good quality at the end in the four or five good breakaways we had in the second half.”
United now sit 12 points behind league leaders, Manchester City, leaving themselves a mountain to climb with 12 games left to be played in the season. Solskjaer’s men still have some tough opposition left in the Premier League in Manchester City, Leicester City and Tottenham. Their season is still alive in the Europa League and the FA Cup.
