Manchester United boss Olé Gunnar Solskjaer has expressed disappointment with the draw against Liverpool.

Manchester United went into the clash with an opportunity to extend their lead over the reigning champions to six points, but a poor start and a lack of sharpness in front of goal cost the team.

United will go into this week’s clash against Fulham still three points ahead of Liverpool, but the gaffer is worried tonight’s draw could come back to haunt us.

Speaking to the BBC after the clash, the Norwegian said, “It’s only a good result if we win the next game. It was an opportunity missed with the chances we had but then again we were playing a very good side.

“I’m disappointed but still a point is OK if you win the next one. We were stronger towards the end. We didn’t start at all in the first half. We didn’t have any composure or try to impose ourselves. The team is working hard for each other.”

The Red Devils finished the first half with just one shot at goal, compared to Liverpool’s nine, although we had four on target by the end of the game, while they had just three.
