Manchester United fight hard to get a 1-1 draw and Solskjaer takes positives
Manchester United fought against Everton to draw 1-1 at Goodison but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer found some positives from the game.
The match didn’t start well for us as David de Gea made a huge error. He took too long to kick the ball and it came off Dominic Calvert-Lewin, which give home side the lead.
De Gea has been a bit lacklustre in recent months, and this was another major mistake from the Spaniard. However, Solskjaer didn’t see it that way and claimed such incidents happen in the game (h/t BBC)
“It’s something that happens in football once in a while if you take too long on the ball. Calvert-Lewin always chases everything and it’s unfortunate that it goes in the goal.”
De Gea did pull off a great save in the dying seconds before Everton found the back of the net again. But the goal was rightly disallowed for offside.
Carlo Ancelotti argued about that decision with the referee and was sent off for his protests after full-time.
Fernandes does it again
Bruno Fernandes is having quite the start to his career as a Red Devil. The Portuguese scored, yet again, this time a screamer to level the scores and Solskjaer was impressed by the January signing:
“He’s a good player and we have been missing that type of player to do that for us, I’m very pleased with his contribution.”
The former Sporting Lisbon star looked the part for us and hopefully, his form continues for the remainder of the campaign.
The point didn’t help us close the gap on fourth-placed Chelsea but we lie just three points behind the Blues.
