Manchester United could only beat West Ham 1-0, courtesy of an own goal by Craig Dawson.
Speaking after the game, Manchester United boss Olé Gunnar Solskjaer revealed what pleased him and what he didn’t like from the game.
He admitted that the team needs to be more clinical in front of goal, and also bemoaned the poor start to the game. He also hailed the team for their good defending, the work rate, the control of the game and how they bounced back from a slow start.
“We need to be more clinical – that helps me as well with my heart. Fortunately, we defended fantastically.
“Dean Henderson did not have a save to make and I guess that is a good sign.”
On the overall performance of his side, Solskjaer added: “It is always hard in the Premier League, but I felt we controlled the game quite well after the first 15 minutes.
“We didn’t start well and couldn’t find a red shirt but the attitude is always there.
“We built pressure and momentum and had enough chances in the end. We earned the spaces. ‘We worked really hard from the front tirelessly. Spaces opened up and then we can see the quality in our players.”
