Manchester United were not s*** against Arsenal - Solskjaer

Adjust Comment Print

Solskjaer can call on his first choice front six for the first time since that 0-2 defeat to Paris Saint Germain a month ago, during which Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard went off injured. As quoted by the Daily Mail, Solskjaer said: "I can't really comment on Gareth Bale or specific players".

United now have two weeks before they next play with the upcoming global break. "That was the poorest performance we have had".

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

The Norwegian said his side have "got to go again" after the global break as they bid for a top-four finish in the Premier League and face Barcelona in the Champions League quarter-finals.

United had won all nine of their away matches under Solskjaer until their trip to Emirates Stadium, where goals from Granit Xhaka and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang struck a blow in the top-four battle. It's very disappointing that we're not in the semis.

"We know we played well against Arsenal last week and didn't get what we deserved".

"It's something natural, you can not perform to the top of your levels every single time", said Solskjaer. While insisting that his initial run of success was not going to last forever, he was quick to say that United will be ready to go again once they return from global duty.

"This is the poorest we've played, but against a good team".

Asked if preventing City from completing a clean sweep would be an added bonus for United, the Serbia worldwide midfielder told ESPN FC: "Of course". We've got so much to play for.

Goals from Granit Xhaka and Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang condemned Manchester United to their first league defeat since Solskjaer's appointment as caretaker boss back in December, however, the Norwegian said that despite the result, he was pleased with the performance from his side. "We have so many highlights look forward to". "When they come back again, we'll give it a good go".
