Manchester United boss Olé Gunnar Solskjaer has said that Manchester United’s lack of possession and poor ball management is what cost the team against Liverpool.
United earned a point at the home of the reigning Premier League champions on Sunday, but many have criticised our performance on the evening.
And Solskjaer seems to share in those sentiments, as the Norwegian admitted after the game, that we didn’t keep the ball enough, and when we did, we didn’t do much with it.
He said in his post-match interview, “I don’t think we played well enough. We did not impose ourselves on the game, especially in the first half.
“We can play better, we know that. We can be more composed, have the ball more. I thought we gave the ball away too often. Some moments we missed. There are a couple of things we need to improve on.
“I am a bit disappointed at the moment. I think we could have been better on the ball with more quality. We can play better, but we are coming away with a point which shows how far we have come in a year, six months.”
Liverpool finished the game with a larger bulk of the ball possession (65% to Man United’s 35%), although we had more shots on target (4).
