Manchester United manager Ole Solskjaer Gunnar says the match delegate for last week’s “momentum-changing” Premier League defeat against Sheffield United admitted his team were on the wrong end of two key decisions.
The 2-1 defeat last Wednesday ended United’s 13-match unbeaten league run, leaving Ole Solskjaer frustrated by the decisions that allowed Kean Bryan’s opener to stand before Anthony Martial’s strike was ruled out.
Billy Sharp appeared to push David de Gea as Bryan scored and Harry Maguire was adjudged to have fouled goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale before Martial found the net — decisions the United boss says he has had confirmed were wrong.
“But I’ve got the delegates’ report through… and the two decisions were wrong.
“You’re more likely when you go 1-0 up than 1-0 down that you can go on and maybe win that game. So that’s fine margins and it has been the way this season.”
Ole Solskjaer confirmed that United would not be adding to the acquisition of Atalanta teenager Amad Diallo on transfer deadline day, but teenager Teden Mengi is heading on loan to Wayne Rooney’s Derby.
