Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has claimed Manchester United shouldn’t even be considered as title contenders after our disappointing 3-3 draw with Everton.

We were high and flying after the first 45 minutes of the game as we went in at the half-time break with a two-goal cushion thanks to Edinson Cavani’s header and a beautiful 20-yard effort from talisman Bruno Fernandes.

But a pair of quickfire goals from Everton midfielders Abdoulaye Doucoure and James Rodriguez brought the Toffees back on level terms to set up a tense finale to the game.

Scott McTominay appeared to have secured victory for the Red devils with a 70th-minute header, but Dominic Calvert-Lewin broke our hearts as he stabbed home a late equalizer to rescue a point for Carlo Ancelotti’s side.

Asked whether United are still slightly short when it comes to winning the title, Solskjaer told Sky Sports: “We’re not talking about winning titles!

“We’ve come a long way with this team and we shouldn’t even be considered as title chasers so that’s one for you.

“We’ve got to be better as a team and then see where we end up.

“Going forward we were very good but we need to stop conceding easy goals.”
