Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said that the 5-0 thrashing of Manchester United at the hands of rivals Liverpool was the darkest day of his managerial career. He believes that the club is close to success despite the latest setback. The latest defeat meant that they are now winless in their last four Premier League matches. Mohamed Salah scored a hattrick while Paul Pogba was sent off just minutes after he came on as a substitute. The defeat has raised questions about whether their big-money signings can gel together as a unit.

“It’s not easy to say something, apart from it’s the darkest day I’ve had leading these players.” Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said. “We weren’t good enough individually or as a team. You can’t give a team like Liverpool those chances and unfortunately, we did. The whole performance wasn’t good enough, that’s for sure. We have created openings, they have had chances, they have been clinical and we did not take our chances early on. Then the third goal is the one that decided the game.”

“It’s mine [responsibly for the loss] – that’s it. The coaching staff are brilliant and I choose the way we approach the game and today, we weren’t clinical enough going forward. There were spaces for both teams and when you give good players spaces, they score.” he added. “You can look back at last season when we lost 6-1 to Spurs – this is miles worse. The opposition as well, that makes it miles worse for me as a Manchester lad and we have to get over this as quick as we can and move on.”
