Manchester United Coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjær, has stated the reason his side lost 2- 0 to Arsenal.
Arsenal hosted Manchester United in a crucial top-four clash on Sunday afternoon. Here are five things we learned from the 2-0 victory.
“We started slow, maybe a backlash from Wednesday night,” he says.
“We were too slow the first 15 minutes – he [Xhaka] had time to hit that ball [for the opening goal].
“But we created so many chances, so many more than when we beat them in the cup but that doesn’t help when the result is like it is.
“It is not scratching your head, sometimes that happens. We hit the woodwork twice, sometimes strikers take them. I know more than anyone, as a striker, that that can happen.
“I can’t remember any proper saves that David [de Gea] had to make. They didn’t really carve us open. It is one of those days, we have to dust ourselves down and now we play Wolves in the FA Cup.”
Arsenal were sensational in Sunday afternoon’s 2-0 victory over top-four rivals Manchester United.
With an early goal thanks to a swerving Granit Xhaka strike, Unai Emery’s side controlled the match in the first half and then played smartly after the break, hurting United on the break when space opened up.
This was a very professional performance, one that was rarely seen under Arsene Wenger.
