Man Utd boss Solskjaer 'annoyed' after Chelsea stay third in Premier League table

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be annoyed at missing out on the opportunity to jump to third in the Premier League table by drawing 2-2 at home to Southampton, according to Sky Sports pundit Eni Aluko.

Scott Armstrong put the visitors ahead early on after great work from Danny Ings to dispossessed Paul Pogba on the edge of his own box.

Goals from Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial flipped the game on it’s head.

But Southampton struck in the sixth minute of stoppage time when substitute Michael Obafemi prodded the ball home at the back post from a corner.

The result means United fail to take advantage of Chelsea and Southampton dropping points over the weekend and remain outside of the Champions League places with three matches remaining.

And Aluko thinks Solskjaer will be frustrated because of what was a stake in the table, in wagin the Red Devils could have risen from fifth to third.

“You see how annoyed Solskjaer is at the end there because that is a missed opportunity,” she said.

“It’ll be tight – Man Utd, for instance, have still got Leicester to play – but there’s a consistency about Man Utd; unbeaten in 18 now.

“They’ll be disappointed tonight but I see them getting that Champions League spot.”

She added: “Southampton had 52 per cent possession at Old Trafford which is no mean feat.

“It’s what I’m here to do – score goals. It’s an amazing feeling. I was supposed to play here in the Youth Cup but sadly I missed it.

“I’m delighted to get the chance this time.”
