Manchester United lost 1-0 at Newcastle on Sunday.

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has blamed the loss to Newcastle on injuries to key players.

Solskjaer said: “We lacked a few key players but that is no excuse.

“At the moment, we are in a position we are not used to. It’s symptomatic of where we are at. We work hard and we don’t create.

“Luckily, it’s the international break. We have time to analyse. Hopefully, we will get some some players back.

“It’s my responsibility and I need to sort their heads out. They are human beings, young footballers who all work hard. We want to see those results.

“Rashford is working hard. He is running, running, running and not getting the service. The first half was the worst we have played.

“The second we dominated, and we don’t get the win. We have six out from the starting XI against Chelsea…we have come together and decided the direction, if you work on sunny days you will never get to where you are going.”
