Solskjaer refuses to blame Matic and Pogba in Leicester loss

Man United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has refused to blame Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic in their Saturday loss at Leicester.

The duo was picked to start in midfield ahead of McTominay and Fred but the combination seemed not to have worked as they were dominated by the home side for the better part of the game.

Solskjaer however chose to blame the entire team for their lucksture outing and urged them to be compact in their forthcoming tests.

"We were too easy to play through. I wouldn't say that's all on Nemanja and Paul, that's the team as a whole. We need to be compact, we need to be more aggressive, we dealt with the runs in behind well enough but maybe dropping off them a bit gave them too much space.

"But that's the whole team, not just Paul and Nemanja. I've not heard what Brendan's said but if he felt that. We weren't good enough on the second balls, didn't win the 50-50s, didn't nick the ball or win the ball in good enough areas because we're so good at winning it and going forward and didn't see enough of that today. I agree we didn't defend well enough, " Solskjaer said.

The Norwegian will hope that they can forget about the loss as they have a tough series of fixtures coming up starting with Atalanta in the Champions League.
