Manchester United faced yet another dent in their title hopes as they were held on to a 3-3 draw against Merseyside outfit Everton at Old Trafford on Saturday night.
A late equaliser in the dying minutes of the match from Dominic Calvert Lewin crushed Manchester United’s hopes of all three points.
‘We are not title chasers’ : Ole Gunnar Solskjær
Manchester United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjær was visibly disappointed that his team let the opponent with a chance with practically the last kick of the ball. Goalkeeper David De Gea was directly at fault for the first goal as he couldn’t collect a regulation cross and the ball fell to Doucoure.
The red devil’s were cruising in the first half after some spectacular goals from the likes of Edison Cavani who turned in a gem of a cross from Marcus Rashford. And then in a moment of individual brilliance Bruno Fernandes bended in a distant effort.
However two quick goals one from Doucoure and the next from James Rodriguez cancelled that out. Scott Mctominay scored from a set piece and restored United’s lead.
But in added time Everton once again found a glimmer of hope and Dominic Calvert Lewin was in the right place to nudge in the ball past David De Gea.
“I wouldn’t blame anyone on the goals but we know we could have done better as a team on all of them.
“Results create the mood, the last kick of the ball makes us go home really disappointed. We have lost two points on a long thump upfield which we should have defended.”
We are not talking about winning titles,” Solskjaer said. We have come a long way, this team.We should not even be considered as title chasers. That is more talk that you (the media) are saying.
