Solskjaer hopes Manchester United have learnt their lesson following Fulham draw

In the end, it turned out to be another disappointing outing at home for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Manchester United against Fulham.

The Red Devils came into the game on the back of two straight losses at home to Leicester City and Liverpool. With 10,000 fans back in attendance, they went in with a chance to end the season on a high.

The omens looked good as Edinson Cavani scored a wonder goal to put us ahead on the night. However, despite numerous opportunities, we were unable to make our dominance count and paid dearly for it.

According to the club’s official site, Solskjaer admitted that he was frustrated by the decision making of his side. With bigger fish to fry later this month, he is hoping that yesterday’s result will have acted as a wake-up call.

“Hopefully it will just wake them up. We made too many decisions that I didn’t like.”

United for their part, did well to fashion chances for themselves. Unfortunately, they faltered in the final third and could make the right calls. This does not augur well heading into the Europa League final.

As long as we continue to spurn opportunities, the opposition has a chance to get back in the game. The same happened yesterday as Fulham hit us on the counter for a share of the spoils.

While the result may not have held much significance, we cannot afford to be so naive when we face Villarreal. The Spaniards are a better side than Fulham and in Unai Emery, they have a competent manager.

Hopefully, the players will pay heed to Solskjaer’s statements and roll up their socks starting this Sunday against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

A loss in Gdansk will undo all the good work and progress we have made this season. We just cannot afford to be so wasteful when it comes to knockout games.
