After Manchester United’s loss to Liverpool on Thursday night, the Red Devils‘ boss made claims that are rarely heard from a modern football manager. Ole Gunnars Solskjaer said that United conceded goals in the key moments of the game. While also admitting that Liverpool deserved the win.
In the post-match interview, the United’s boss said: “They [Liverpool] deserved the win.
“We conceded goals in key moments of the game. We didn’t build on the momentum or break up their momentum.
“We gave them at least two goals really. Then we scored again, had a massive chance — key moments went against us.”
Solskjaer continued: “Their shape and their pressing is very aggressive. We created our own downfall.
“The second goal you probably expect no foul there then it’s a bad moment to concede just before half-time. The third goal we gave them and that’s really poor.
“The attitude was right and the focus was fine, we were ready for it. We didn’t build on the good times.
“We should have gone more for it at the start of the game. Sometimes we let them off the hook and let them play out.”
Meanwhile, Manchester United’s loss to Liverpool on Thursday is their second of the week after a defeat to Leicester City on Tuesday. Although United remain in the second spot in the Premier League standings – 10 points behind champions Manchester City.
