'I don’t think it’s a mental thing' - Solskjaer can't explain Man Utd's home struggles after Arsenal defeat


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Man Utd vs Arsenal Premier League 2020-21

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer struggled to explain Manchester United’s poor home form as they fell to their second home league defeat of the season.

Having beaten RB Leipzig 5-0 at Old Trafford in the Champions League on Wednesday there was hope United could go on to build on that performance but they were slow and sloppy, and Solskjaer said there is no explanation behind their poor home form.

“That's football for you, it's not like you turn on a tap and it comes flowing, we were passive, couldn't get intensity and temperament in our game, was a 0-0 written all over it, I didn’t think any team deserved to win,” Solskjaer said.

“I think home or away it doesn't really matter now because of the crowd, or absence of it, they would've helped.

“I don’t think it’s a mental thing (not being able to win at Old Trafford). It's about quality of opposition at times, we are playing against good teams, marginal decisions that give you a win or loss. Today we lost on a soft penalty and that was the difference between the teams.”

That penalty was given away in the second half by Paul Pogba after an unnecessary challenge in the area on Hector Bellerin.

The Frenchman held his hands up in his post-match interviews and took full responsibility for his mistake and, while Solskjaer agreed he should have done better, he would not place blame for the defeat on the midfielder.

“Paul knows if he stays on his feet and shuffles the boy he was on his way out of the box,” Solskjaer explained.
