PREMIER - Solskjaer on United's match against West Ham
During Manchester United's dismal Carabao Cup defeat last night, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer stated that his team failed to deal with West Ham's low-block.
United got off to a slow start and were deservedly beaten early on by Manuel Lanzini's close-range goal.
During his post-match interview with MUTV, Solskjaer frankly highlighted the side's lack of penetration, as reported by The MEN.
“Poor start, then some good bits, then towards the end when we went gung-ho we open ourselves up and, of course, they could have scored more.
“I thought when we were patient and ran and we tried to probe through the middle, we created some chances.
“We are not great when we play against a low-block and just sling crosses in because we’re not that type of team, we didn’t have them types of players.
“So, we tried to play round them, through them, get in behind them but we did not create enough big chances.”
