Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: Manchester United were architects of our own downfall

Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is 'joint-manager' alongside Mike Phelan- Jason Burt

Wolverhampton Wanderers overturn an early deficit to register a 2-1 win over 10-man Manchester United in Tuesday's Premier League encounter at Molineux.

But Diogo Jota levelled after Fred gave away possession and United captain Ashley Young was sent off after being booked twice for fouls on the Wolves striker to become the 100th dismissal of Mike Dean's Premier League career.

United remain fifth, but their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League via a top-four finish will be further dented if Tottenham and Chelsea win on Thursday.

United had appeared in control despite Wolves having a man advantage and did not concede a single effort on David de Gea's goal until a Joao Moutinho cross was turned into his own net by Chris Smalling.

'But goals change games and we were so unfortunate tonight. We know it was very hard.

But he was delighted with midfielder Scott McTominay's performance and rasping 13th-minute goal from outside the box - his first in 41 appearances for the club in all competitions.

Solskjaer wants as many as five new signings, with a right-back, centre-half and versatile forward in his sights and, depending on the futures of Ander Herrera and Juan Mata, one or two midfielders.




Jesse Lingard forced Rui Patricio into a save within the first 15 seconds after running after a mazy run from kickoff, while the Portuguese stopper also had to react well to keep out Romelu Lukaku's header from point-blank range. "But for their keeper, we should have won this game", rued Solskjaer.

"We still have six games to get those 15 points".

There's little doubt that McTominay isn't going to be the player to grab the headlines for Manchester United, especially with the next batch of players in the academy looking so impressive.

"I'm pleased with the performance, that's what is important".

"After the red card our task is not so hard, of course it is always risky against a hard team, but it makes me proud against such a good team".

"I think that when we go through the team and look at what players played well, they didn't play well".
