Solskjaer bemoans Manchester United for not being ‘clinical’ in dull draw with Arsenal

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has bemoaned his side’s lack of a clinical edge after drawing 1-1 with Arsenal on Monday night.

Midfielder Scott McTominay put Solskjaer’s side in front with his first Old Trafford goal, though Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s seventh Premier League goal of the season secured a point for the visitors in the second half,

Despite having the majority of possession and creating more chances than their opponents, United struggled to take their opportunities and managed just four shots on target.

The draw means United have now won just twice in their opening seven fixtures of the new season, and Solskjaer says his side must develop a clinical streak if they are to turn their disappointing form around.

“Another time we get one up and we don’t get the second goal we want to get. That is the learning for this team. We need to be more clinical at both ends of the pitch.”

“There are many things we look at and many things that give me loads of confidence.

“We can talk about performances but it’s the results that matter. You can talk about the results, I can talk about the six out of seven games with good performances. West Ham we know was below par but still not as bad as you lot made it out to be.”
