Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Left Raging At Referee Over Two Key Decisions During Manchester United's Shock Defeat

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Left Raging At Referee Over Two Key Decisions During Manchester United's Shock Defeat

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was left fuming over the two crucial refereeing decisions that saw Manchester United suffer a shock defeat to Sheffield United.

Solskjaer didn't hesitate when discussing the legality of Sheff United's first goal in their 2-1 victory at Old Trafford on Wednesday.

Billy Sharp appeared to nudge David De Gea who failed to collect the ball in the air as Kean Bryan headed home.

And the Man United boss was not happy with Peter Bankes' decision to not blow for a foul.

The Red Devils then thought they had levelled in the first-half when Anthony Martial slotted the ball into the back of the net until the referee whistled for a foul following Harry Maguire's challenge on Aaron Ramsdale.

Another call he felt went against his team on a disappointing night.

Speaking to BT Sport after the match, he said: "We had all the possession but concede two bad goals.

"We didn't create enough. There was no magic, no space to run into. They defended well, fair play to them. We didn't have the right ideas or solutions.

"First goal? [It's a] foul. Billy Sharp just runs into him [David de Gea] behind him so he can't get up, so it's a foul. At the other end, no foul."

In the studio, Peter Crouch agreed with Solskjaer: "Sharp had no eyes on ball. His remit was to disturb De Gea but it is a foul.

"[At the other end] Harry Maguire has eyes on ball, Sharp didn't. If you give one, you give the other. Twenty years ago neither was a foul though."

Rio Ferdinand also thought it was a foul: "De Gea could do better but I think he is impeded by Billy Sharp who had both hands on De Gea. I think it's a foul."
