Managers Reaction

Brendan Rodgers: “I thought we started well, then we came back into the game and showed a great mentality. In the second half, it was about reinforcing that aggression in our game, that is when we are at our best. We were excellent at creating opportunities going forward and we could have had more.”

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: “We didn’t deserve a point today. I wouldn’t say it was maturity, it was the focus on the key moments. Two set-pieces, one goal 10 seconds after we equalize, are goals that should not happen. We weren’t good enough at second balls and 50-50s, the sort of things you need to do to win football matches. The best player was David and he conceded four goals.”
