Manchester United failed to capitalise on Leicester City’s draw against Burnley to go three points ahead in second place, after playing out a goalless draw against Crystal Palace on Wednesday night.

The draw was United’s third in as many games, and Olé Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted his concern for the downturn in form.

In his post-match reaction, the Norwegian said, “Sometimes you just don’t hit the form that you normally have and have had for many, many months. It’s a bit of a worry of course it is but I know that the boys are giving everything.

“We play every three days and I know they’re giving everything they’ve got. Attitude and approach I’m very happy with. The quality we need to get back to what we know we can do.

“We just didn’t have the quality and tempo in the passing. We started slow and it’s never nice to see the opposition take the initiative.

“When we played with quality and tempo we did create some chances but we didn’t have enough of it and build enough pressure for their keeper to make saves.”

United’s latest draw means we go into this weekend’s match against Manchester City, 14 points behind them.
