Manchester United produced a black and white performance as ugly as their jersey as they lost 2-1 to Istanbul Basaksehir in the Champions League. The Red Devils were very poor in defence with a terrible error gifting the Turkish team their first goal. Manchester United gaffer Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has taken responsibility for the team’s defending .
‘We forgot about the man up top, that is unforgivable,’ admitted Solskjaer.
‘Obviously it’s not a goal you normally concede. We’ve not done our duties there, that’s my responsibility.
‘Playing a short corner and everyone forgets to get back with the players they’re playing against, and Demba Ba snuck in behind us.
‘It’s a lack of communication and good decisions. You don’t really see those goals at this level.’
United suffered a second defeat in four days following Arsenal’s win at Old Trafford last weekend, and Solskjaer is under mounting pressure going into the clash with Everton at Goodison Park on Saturday lunchtime.
