This defeat also saw the emergence of an incredible stat; Ole Gunnar Solskjaer lost more matches than Jurgen Klopp despite playing 104(!) matches less.

Joshua King produced a big discontent for Solskjaer who spoke after the match.

“We’re disappointed,” Solskjaer started his interview with BT Sport.

“When you get to places like this you have to take control of the game.

“We started really well first 15 minutes but then there was a lack of quality and we couldn’t get a goal.

“The first goal was always going to be important. Every time you concede a goal it’s a bad goal to give away but it’s a bit of magic that wins the game, you’ve got to say that.”

Solskjaer then proceeded to send a warning signal, adding:

“Maybe I should’ve started a couple of others, who knows?”

In the end, Manchester United manager ended by dismissing fatigue as the factor in this match.

“We started the game well, so I don’t think that was the case. Wednesday night, Saturday early. We lacked quality at times.

“If you want to be challenging for the top four you have to be winning games like this.

“We’re disappointed [but] we’ve got a game on Thursday against Partizan and we can make sure we go through and then we play Brighton before the international break.”
