Ole Gunnar admits United didn't deserve win against Leicester

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was left disappointed by his side's showing, during their Premier League match against Leicester on Saturday evening at the Old Trafford. 

The Red Devils labored to a 1-0 win over the Foxes but were largely unimpressive throughout the match against a disciplined side. 

Marcus Rashford's penalty within the opening 10 minutes was the difference, and Ole Gunnar has lamented over this. 

“Let’s not kid ourselves, we didn’t play a great game. The first 25 minutes were fantastic, but we gradually lost control. Then towards the end, we were in control," said Ole Gunnar. 

 “Today was probably the first time this season, apart from spells against Chelsea, where we’ve had to defend as a team for longer periods, so the clean sheet is pleasing," 

“We don’t get carried away when we win a game we didn’t deserve to win because performances have been miles better than this," 

 “Today we have to accept three points and tomorrow relax a bit and look forward to next week.”

United missed a host of first-team players notably Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial, Jesse Lingard, and Luke Shaw, but held on to pick maximum points.

They now turn their attention to European football with a Europa League clash on Thursday at home against Kazakhstan's Astana, before another Premier League battle away to West Ham on Sunday.
