Manchester United boss Olé Gunnar Solskjaer, has blamed his players inability to get into rhythm as the reason for today’s draw against Southampton.

Goals from Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial seemed enough to see us move into third place on the Premier League table, but Michael Obafemi had other plans, as he slotted home in the 96th minute, to put a dent on our top four hopes.

Reacting to the draw, Solskjaer told the media: “It was the worst time to concede a goal but it happens in football. We have won so many games in that way. It is all part of the learning for this team.

“Southampton are good team, they run, and run and chase. We never got into our rhythm today. We played some fantastic football at times. The two goals we scored were very, very good.

“We defended well until that corner. It is disappointing but that’s football. I know the feeling the other way as well.”

Man United must now win our next match, and hope Chelsea and Leicester City drop points, if we want to enter the top four.
