Solskjaer gives reason for breaking Manchester United’s home record

Manchester United boss, Olé Gunnar Solskjaer, has again lamented the absence of the fans at Old Trafford, following his side’s 1-0 loss to Arsenal.

The Gunners’ captain, Pierre Emerick Aubameyang’s second half penalty, following a foul by Paul Pogba was enough to condemn United to their third defeat this season, after six matches.

The loss also means that Solskjaer’s side have failed to win a single match in their first four Premier League home games for the first time since 1972- 73, and Solskjaer believes the absence of the fans played a part.

Speaking to the media after the encounter, he said, “Home and away form is out the window really with no fans in the stadium. You cant really look at that, just look at the stats. It doesn’t mean too much, we need to get points on the board. We need to focus on Everton next week.”

Solskjaer also made similar comments after the 0-0 draw with Chelsea, where he claimed United would have scored if the Stretford end of Old Trafford was full during the match.
