Solskjaer admitted they were also poor against Brighton, who hit the woodwork five times
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer urged his side to keep on pushing to score late goals after earning a barely deserved 3-2 win at Brighton and Hove Albion thanks to Bruno Fernandes’ penalty in the 100th minute Saturday.
United’s haphazard performance against Brighton left much to be desired but while Solskjaer admitted his side still had plenty of improvements to make, he praised their efforts to find a goal after Solly March’s 95th-minute leveller.
Referee Chris Kavanagh had blown the fulltime whistle before going to the pitchside monitor and determining that Neal Maupay had handled in the area trying to defend a late United corner.
The Premier League win against Brighton recalled his side’s incredible Champions League victory over Paris Saint Germain two seasons ago, when they were given a penalty deep in added time for a handball, also after a Video Assistant Referee review.
United lost their first game of the season 3-1 at home to Crystal Palace and Solskjaer admitted they were also poor against Brighton, who hit the woodwork five times, though he praised his side’s spirit.
