Solskjaer admits Watford made life ‘difficult’ for Manchester United

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits Watford made life ‘difficult’ for Manchester United, after seeing his side earn a hard fought 2-1 win at Old Trafford.

Goals from Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial put Manchester United two goals ahead, before Abdoulaye Doucoure’s late goal set up a nervy finish.

United held on to move above Arsenal and into the Premier League‘s top four, after sealing the first win since Solskjaer’s permanent appointment as manager on Thursday.

“It was a really nervy last five minutes,’’ Solskjaer told his post match press conference.

”Watford made it difficult for us and it seemed as though we were still on holiday or the international break.

“You can’t play well in every game and get the points you deserve. Both teams feel they should have points.

“When I won trophies here, we didn’t play well in every game. Today, we won on a below par game but it was against a good side and we have to acknowledge Watford.”
