Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes he can save his side’s sinking season after their shock 4-1 defeat at Watford.
Solskjaer had hoped that the resumption of the Premier League after the international break might mark a change in fortune. But the heat is now firmly back on the Norwegian after a disastrous defeat at Vicarage Road.
It was a fourth defeat in five league games for United who have shipped 15 goals in that period and are in seventh place with 17 points — 12 behind leaders Chelsea who they face at Stamford Bridge next week.
Asked if he was the man to take United forward, Solskjaer said: “I always have belief in myself but of course at the moment it is a difficult time for us.
“I can see, and I trust that all the players and staff give all that they have but the results are difficult. But I believe I can turn this around.”
United were lucky to only to be trailing to goals by Joshua King and Ismaila Sarr at halftime after a poor first half performance.
There was a slight improvement after the break as substitute Donny van de Beek, pulled a goal back to make it 2-1.
But his goal proved a rare highlight and after Harry Maguire was red-carded for a clumsy foul on Tom Cleverley, Watford rubbed salt into the wounds with stoppage-time goals by Joao Pedro and Emmanuel Dennis.Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
