Manchester United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, admits his side made it difficult for themselves as they held on to claim a 3-2 victory over relegation struggling Sheffield United. Goals from Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial cancelled out an early David McGoldrick strike to give the visitors all three points.
Solskjaer speaking to BBC Sport said: “It wasn’t comfortable at all towards the end. We made it difficult for ourselves again after a slow start but then we played some brilliant stuff. When they get that second goal it’s not comfortable at all.”
He also commented on the performance of Dean Henderson, whose mistake gave Sheffield United an early lead.
“He [Dean Henderson] dillied and dallied on the ball for the first goal. We saw the good and bad from him today because he made a great save towards the end.”
Chris Wilder stated that he doesn’t worry about his job at Sheffield United and that he doesn’t “worry about things he can’t control” as his side currently sit with one point from their first 13 Premier League games.
“I am a free manager anyway, I don’t worry about what I can’t control. I don’t worry about my job. I keep coming into work and doing it to the best of my ability. There is a huge gulf, people don’t understand what Sheffield United are about when they talk about people’s futures”.
