Solskjaer unhappy with slow start as Man United stumble at Arsenal

  • Unai Emery and Arsenal have to make up for a 3-1 first-leg deficit against Rennes

The United midfielder made only the slightest contact with Lacazette as he lent into the France striker, who immediately tumbled to the turf.

Goals from Granit Xhaka and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang wrapped up the victory for the home side as they leapfrogged the Red Devils into fourth place in the table. Of course, the penalty - I think the referee will be disappointed when he sees this, I don't think it's a penalty.

In terms of the result, Solskjaer refused to blame De Gea for not keeping out Xhaka's curling effort, instead questioning why his defence afforded the Switzerland global so much room.

David de Gea in particular is said to be unhappy with the club's refusal to raise his wages to a similar amount to the Chilean's.

"It goes to David's left and changes direction completely".

The Norwegian has put the club on an upward trajectory since he replaced the sacked Jose Mourinho in December, with 10 Premier League victories and two draws ahead of the Arsenal fixture.

Solskjaer admitted United's tame opening may have been in part caused by fatigue after their European heroics.

Trudeau denies 'partisan' meddling in prosecution
At Thursday's news conference Trudeau picked up this theme, saying Wilson-Raybould should have come to him if she felt pressured. They had pushed her to seek outside legal advice on whether SNC-Lavalin could enter into a deferred prosecution agreement.

The Red Devils were expected to be full of spirit and endeavour after their fantastic turnaround against Paris Saint Germain in the Champions League in midweek, but it never really played out that way as they were comfortably beaten.

"But they've just got to try to focus on each and every game and take each one in isolation".

The Gunners leaped into top four having garnered 60 points from 30 matches and will hope they can maintain the position so as to qualify for the Champions League at the end of the season.

Arsenal are back in the Top Four right now, relegating United to Fifth, and we are now just one point behind Tottenham, who simply can't win a game - and have the daunting task of a trip to Anfield coming up next.

"They (United) were in a good moment after one result against PSG but we had a big performance and we are in a good moment in the Premier League", he said.

"But my feeling is the same as a few games ago: we are going to drop points".

Arsenal boss Unai Emery was delighted with a statement result that showed his team can hold their own against the league's elite.
