Ole Gunnar Solskjaer critical of 'sloppy' Manchester United

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer critical of 'sloppy' Manchester United”

Fifth-place Manchester United hosts eighth-place Watford on Saturday in Premier League action, with the Red Devils looking to potentially get back into the top four.

Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial scored United's goals, while Abdoulaye Doucoure netted a late concession for the Hornets.

"We had to because they were dominant but Chris (Smalling) and Jonah (Phil Jones) especially were fantastic, (they) kept us in it". Despite their mediocre performance they took their chances at the end of the day, as Solskjaer's side earned a crucial victory at Old Trafford.

United's short-term target is to secure a Premier League top-four finish and qualification for the Champions League but Solskjaer wants the club to target the league title next season.

Politico further noted that McMahon is expected to visit the president in Florida this weekend. Trump repeatedly praised McMahon for her work as head of the SBA.

Back-to-back losses to Arsenal in the league and Wolves in the FA Cup seemed to be on United's minds at times as they played largely risk-free football, but Solskjaer will be pleased enough to emerge from this game with three points.

"The first 20 minutes we started so slow and sloppy and you could see we have had players out with injuries in the worldwide break and not been able to train them", said Solskjaer. "That just shows because he struggled during the worldwide break".

One highlight for Solskjaer was the performance of Luke Shaw, who set up Rashford's goal with a wonderful pass through the Watford defence.

"Luke has got so much in his locker and I can't wait to see it blossom", Solskjaer said. But their decision making in the final third was continuing to let them down. Although, having seen on social media him going through recovery work overseas, I am not certain his match sharp.

Trump signs proclamation recognising Golan Heights as Israeli territory
Trump's decision might be more defensible if it were part of a new and innovative US policy in the region. Israel passed legislation annexing the territory, but the rest of the world has not recognized the law.

Foster made an excellent save to keep it 1-0 when a loose ball fell to Martial, and then Rashford got around Foster on the far edge of the area but could not find a teammate. They struggled to put David de Gea in the Manchester United goal in under any real pressure despite all the good play. He was top, top class today until he got cramp.

"The second half was disappointing, again". Even when United won, it was hard to enjoy watching them play. "We were not at our best and we need to improve on Tuesday".

"But when you don't kill, you don't score, playing these teams with high quality then you can lose any moment".
