Following Manchester United’s 3-2 win over Brighton And Hove Albion on Saturday, Olé Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed Manchester United must improve on the way they deal with crosses into the box.

In all fairness, the Red Devils were lucky to have left with all three points, as the result could have gone the way of the hosts, especially after they hit the woodwork a number of times.

Speaking during his post-match reaction, Solskjaer acknowledged his side’s poor handling of crosses, and admitted it needs to be improved on.

The Norwegian told MUTV: “We need to stop crosses better, we need to get in blocks in the box better.

“(They hit) Crossbar a few times, though I think David had most of them in control. Better finishing from them and they could get three points.”

Brighton were very good, and deserved a point from the game, but we’re definitely grateful we took all three.

But it’s not enough to talk about these frailties and do nothing about them— October 5 isn’t very far away now. If the club wants to get better, reinforcements must be brought in quickly.
