Manchester United were not s*** against Arsenal - Solskjaer

He said: "You're always measured on results but we played a good game against Arsenal".

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

"The players? Don't worry about their attitude because when they come back again we'll give it a good go".

"This was a big step backwards, mainly because of the quality of the possession and the passing". To try to achieve the same is much, much harder now but we will try step by step.

"Without the ball we did OK first half but the tempo on the ball wasn't high enough so we played into their hands really".




Diogo Jota had the best chance of the first stanza for Nuno Espírito Santo's charges three minutes before the break after he was sent clear on goal by Raul Jimenez's, but Romero pulled off a good save from just inside the box to keep the score level. We had composure, shape, good running.

"It was the poorest performance we've had", said Solskjaer.

With United still chasing a place in the Premier League's top four and having a Champions League quarter-final against Barcelona to look forward to, Solskjaer is not too downbeat.

Solskjaer and United have deservedly been showered in praise for their dramatic rejuvenation since Jose Mourinho was sacked in December, the highlight of which was the stunning Champions League turnaround against Paris St-Germain in France earlier this month. It's the poorest performance since I've come here.

United had won all nine of their away matches under Solskjaer until their trip to Emirates Stadium, where goals from Granit Xhaka and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang struck a blow in the top-four battle.
