Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes his team’s own goal that stood in the favor of Everton should have been disallowed.

Manchester United players were involved in both the goals during their earlier draw with Everton. David de Gea’s failed attempt to clear the ball was rebounded in his own net by Victor Lindelof. The Swede’s goal sought some careful reviewing but was given by the VAR.

After the match, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insisted that he did not agree with the VAR’s decision. The Man Utd manager expressed his frustration on both the match officials and his players for the results.

Solskjaer explained his stance on why the goal should not have stood although admitting that it would not make any difference.

“We’re disappointed we didn’t get three points,” Solskjaer said as Goal reported.

“We didn’t have the ideas to win it towards the end. We kept them on the back foot. And if any team was going to win it it was us.

“We came back after the disappointment at half time. You shouldn’t concede goals like this at set plays. But it’s a foul,” the Norwegian boss insisted.

“There’s no point me complaining but his arms are over David’s shoulders as he was going to punch it.”
