Solskjaer laments worst Manchester United performance of his interim tenure

Solskjaer applauding after a Manchester United match

Raul Jimenez put his side in front in the 70th minute after shoving away United's defenders, swivelling around and tucking in a loose ball.

"It was a big step backwards, I've got to say", stated Solskjaer.

The Norwegian said his team's performance in the 2-1 defeat at Molineux was the "poorest" of his time in charge at Old Trafford as United slumped to back-to-back defeats for the first time since Jose Mourinho's final two games as manager.

"Sometimes global breaks come in handy and we would have loved to play it again and put it right".

"I didn't think we had enough quality in the last third, enough combination play", added Solskjaer.

Writing in his column for BBC Sport, Lawrenson said: "United lost their first league game under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last week but, with the chances they had, they should have beaten Arsenal".

And former Liverpool FC star Lawrenson is backing Manchester United to claim victory and seal their spot in the FA Cup semi-finals on Saturday.




However, the whistle was blown soon after, sealing United's first successive defeat since Solskjaer took over as caretaker manager.

"Then we will be ready to push again because we're in a great position in the league, we're in the Champions League".

"It means a lot, it means a lot", the Portuguese said.

Solskjaer will know that his Red Devils side will need to be competitive and close to their best to leave Molineux with victory, as Wolves have been a hard opponent this term for English football's top teams. I thought that was maybe the biggest letdown and the urgency, because we are better when we play quickly, we play forward, we run forward.

"We were very disappointed in the result, it hurts more than anything, but we can't look at the performance and say we were s***, because we weren't, to be honest and blunt".

"If they hadn't had [David] De Gea behind, then they certainly wouldn't have won as many games as they have".
