Solskjaer criticises Man Utd strikers after West Brom stalemate


Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was critical of his strikers for failing to find a winner in their 1-1 draw against West Brom.

The Red Devils were behind after only three minutes when Mbaye Diagne headed past David De Gea.

But, Bruno Fernandes levelled just before half-time and United would have expected to find a winner against Sam Allardyce’s team.

However, Solskjaer’s side didn’t create enough chances that would have been expected, with the best chances falling to Greenwood, McTominay and Harry Maguire.

But there were occasions in the game when fine crosses from Luke Shaw, Greenwood and Aaron Wan-Bissaka flashed across goal without any United striker found on the end of the deliveries.

‘You don’t do enough to win if you don’t get the finish or last pass off,’ said Solskjaer. ‘Mason Greenwood flashed the ball across the goal, someone should be there. They call me a tap-in merchant. We should have been there.’

The draw means United have picked up only 10 points from their last seven Premier League games.

Though Solskjaer is not giving up on the Premier League title, he will definitely be starting to look nervously over his shoulder as the chase for the top four intensifies.

Meanwhile, United are four points clear of fourth-place Chelsea after the Blues had a 2-0 win over Newcastle on Monday.
