A stray pass from the England international led to City breaking with a dangerous counter.
Raheem Sterling ended up one on one with David De Gea but the City winger fluffed his chance.
Solskjaer was visibly furious with his midfielder and replaced him with Andreas Pereira shortly after.

Lingard lost possession eight times at the Etihad Stadium and was criticised by Sky Sports commentator Gary Neville throughout the game.
United won the game 1-0 last night but still bowed out of the Carabao Cup 3-2 on aggregate.
'The Red Devils' fought valiantly last night after going in to the second leg 3-1 down.
Pep Guardiola's side started the better and put the visitors under a lot of pressure in the opening 15 minutes.
David De Gea kept United in the game with a string of quality saves.
United took the lead against the run of play when Nemanja Matic fired a volley past Claudio Bravo ten minutes from half-time.
