Ole Gunnar Solskjaer boys ignited another fine come back to ease 3-1 past struggling Jose Mourinho’s side Tottenham Hotspurs.
The Reds Devils once again come back from 1-0 down to beat Spurs 3-1. Fred, Cavani and substitute Mason Greenwood netted to hand Solskjaer an important victory that has raised the title talks.
According to Solskjaer, the disallowed goal was injustice, praised his side’s character to claim the three points. He charged that United responded as a team in a mission.
“Character again. When you get the injustice and adversity, that decision [to disallow the goal] is just shocking and to come together,” Solskjaer said.
“Yeah, we lost our focus for maybe a few moments and minutes and unfortunately conceded a goal. But we came together and composed ourselves. We went there as a team on a mission. We looked like a team on a mission. That this is not going to derail our season,” he explained.
Solskjaer dismisses the disallowed goal, blasts it as an obvious error that the referee Chris Kavanagh made.
“That’s the game is gone. The game has gone if that’s a clear and obvious error. It’s a clear and obvious error that he [referee Chris Kavanagh] looks at it,” Solskjaer claims.
“It was a perfectly good goal, you know, I think that kickstarted us though. I know we conceded a goal just after, but the performance from then to the end of the game was so much better.
However, the Old Trafford boss did admit the title can still be won.
“It’s not theoretically impossible, but it would take a lot and it would take a miracle. But sometimes miracles happen,” Solskjaer said.
“For us though, we just have to get as many points on the board as possible. And keep getting the wins that we need to make sure we’ve improved from last season. We want to at least get as close to them as possible,” he added.
