Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes his side showed character but got away with a poor performance as his side came from a goal down to beat West Ham 3-1 at the London Stadium.
Speaking to BBC Sport after the game, Solskjaer said: “”We got away with a poor performance. Away from home we have character and belief. Five times on the bounce to come from behind and win is exceptional.”
West Ham manager David Moyes was not happy with the decision to give Manchester United’s equaliser as a pass in the build-up from United goalkeeper Dean Henderson looked to have gone out of play before reaching Bruno Fernandes who played the ball to the goalscorer.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Moyes said: “The linesman is claiming he didn’t see it. It was a poor decision. The ball was out of play, the players’ reaction gives the best way to look at it and all our players knew it was out of play as well. [After that] we turned off. It really gave us a bad feeling from that disappointment.”
“The ball went over my head on the touchline – there was no-one in a better position to see it than me.”
