Five United players are reportedly unhappy with Solskjaer – 90min

Five Manchester United players are reportedly unhappy with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer following their 1-1 draw with Everton on Saturday.

Anthony Martial gave the Red Devils the lead in the first half but Andros Townsend scored a crucial second-half equaliser for the Toffees as Solskjaer’s side were unable to find a winner.

According to Telegraph Football, five players are unhappy with the United boss, including Cristiano Ronaldo and Paul Pogba.

Ronaldo stormed down the tunnel in frustration after the draw with Everton, and the report adds that David de Gea was equally furious and shared his frustration with his team-mates.

Speaking after the game, Solskjaer claimed that United “lacked that important cutting edge” to score a second against Everton.

“We did have enough players behind the ball, we made a couple of bad decisions which cost us in those 10 seconds or whatever it fell,” he said. “We were organised well enough behind the ball, but we should have dealt with the danger better.

“Today we dominated the game, we just couldn’t get that second goal that you need in games like this. Everton, as we knew from last season, can score a goal from nowhere. It was about the counter-attack that they threw at us. We were well enough organised, we should have dealt with the situation a lot better.

“You can focus on dropping deeper and allowing them to have the ball, today we had 75 per cent possession or whatever it was, and we got hit on one break there that cost us. And we lacked that important cutting edge to get the second goal.”
