No excuses for Manchester United after a new stumble

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer blamed himself for the poor performance in the 4-2 defeat at Leicester City and the third consecutive Premier League match without a win on Saturday.

United did not maintain its lead with a goal, and found itself behind 2-1, and despite the equalizer, Leicester scored two goals near the end to emerge victorious.

This is United’s first loss away from home in the league after 29 consecutive games, raising doubts about the possibility of competing for the league title for the first time since 2013 when he was crowned at the time with veteran coach Alex Ferguson.

“When you look at the match, we conceded the four goals poorly,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports. “Given the way we played, we don’t deserve to continue to maintain our unbeaten away record.”

He added, “I choose the squad. Harry Maguire was not suffering from any effects of the injury, and I take responsibility in the event that the selection did not work. It is possible that I made some wrong decisions.”

“Recently our level is not good, we lost a lot of points, and this is something we have to try to fix. Maybe we should make changes, do we need more players? What do we need?”

Maguire, who suffered a leg injury during the 1-0 loss to Aston Villa last month, was a candidate to miss the Leicester game but returned to the starting line-up and appeared modestly against his former team.

Cristiano Ronaldo also did not appear well and lacked the decisive touch, and Jadon Sancho, who joined in a huge deal this season, failed to leave an imprint, and he went out in the second half and Marcus Rashford participated in his place.

But strangely enough, Rashford, who made his first game since undergoing shoulder surgery in August, did better and scored a 2-2 equalizer in the 82nd minute.

But United collapsed in the last moments and the humble defense cost them a loss, and Solskjaer believes that the homeowner really deserved to win.

“I’m not going to make any excuses for the team I brought in. They are top class players and we didn’t play well. The performance was not good and it’s frustrating to concede two goals from free kicks,” the Norwegian coach said.

“The only positive thing is that Marcus is back. He’s in good physical shape and he was decisive and that’s a huge advantage.”
