Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: Manchester United were architects of our own downfall

Nuno Espirito Santo Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Scott McTominay was left wondering how Manchester United conspired to lose at Wolves on a "strange night" for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side.

But United's inability to take their chances came back to haunt them, with Diogo Jota levelling before Ashley Young's second-half red card was followed by Chris Smalling turning into his own net.

It might have been an even healthier position a few moments later, but Romelu Lukaku impeded McTominay as his teammate lined up another shot from similar range.

'It was a odd night, ' the Scotland global said.

Solskjaer had set his team a target of 15 points from the last seven games meaning United now need to win five of their remaining six fixtures. We know it was very hard.

'For the first hour we were in good nick. We should have been three up. The boys did what they should but we conceded from sloppy mistakes and didn't score.

'It was hard to get pressure on the ball like we did in the first 25 minutes.

He said that his administration had improved Obamacare during his presidency, but that he wanted to ultimately replace it. District Court Judge John Bates said that the move let those involved "avoid the most stringent requirements of the ACA".

United appear to have one of the toughest run-ins too with Manchester City and Chelsea due to visit Old Trafford within four days of each other at the end of the month.

Solskjaer now has a three year contract at United, with plans for next season already underway. It was his first goal in 41 appearances for the club in all competitions.

Wolves agreed a permanent deal of around £12million (Sky Sports) for Jota last summer after he previously impressed on loan and played a major role in promotion from the Championship.

However, the home side were able to survive late pressure from United to return to winning ways ahead of Sunday's FA Cup semi-final with Watford at Wembley Stadium.

"It was a very good performance until they got their second goal and but for their keeper we would have won".

'Each game is very important for us and we give all the best, every single match. Wolves, who came up from the Championship a year ago, are seventh in the Premier League on 47 points, a dream position for their fans.

"Very disappointed with the result but pleased with the performance up until 75 mins".
