The 47-year-old refused to comment about the game when asked by BT Sports journalist how he felt like getting back to winning ways.

Solskjaer said:

“Of course it is, because we were set up to fail.
“I said to you before, I want to talk to you about the kick-off time, before the game, and this has set up the boys to fail.
“We’ve got Luke Shaw injured today because we’ve been to Turkey, we’ve had loads of games this season already.
“And we’ve been to Turkey on Wednesday night, back Thursday morning and we’re playing Saturday, lunchtime kick-off?
“It’s an absolute shambles and I can’t praise the boys enough for that character they’ve shown. That’s all I want to talk about today.
“Those boys, they deserve better than being thrown out here to fail today.”
