Solskjaer’s side had an early heartbreak in Carabao Cup when Hammers secured a 1-0 win at Old Trafford.
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is unhappy with clear penalty against West Ham. He feels United were denied a clear penalty on Wednesday and it cost them a game. Red Devils had an early heartbreak in Carabao Cup when Hammers secured a 1-0 win at Old Trafford. Man United knocked out from the League Cup in third round and fans are also not happy with it.
Norwegian belives hosts should have had an opportunity to equalise when Jesse Lingard was brought down in the box by Mark Noble. Referee denied it and Man United failed to get an equaliser. West Ham took an early lead in the 9th minute of the game and this one goal decided the winner.
Solskjaer said, “It’s a clear penalty for Jesse again, Mark Noble falls and pulls him down. You can’t dwell too much on that. I’ve never actually won this tournament, that hunt will have to keep going, because it’s a trophy I’d like to have.
He also talked about the squad and added, “We have to make decisions to get the squad up to speed for the rest of the season, sometimes you have to make changes, take risks and we did.”
Manchester United will now face Aston Villa in their Premier League encounter at Old Trafford. Red Devils currently stands at number 3 on goal difference with same number of points with first-placed Chelsea and 2nd-placed Liverpool.
