Manchester United manager Ole Gunner Solskjaer disappointed with the result against Watford says they started too late.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunner Solskjaer was disappointed with the result against Watford in the Premier League.

The Red Devils suffers yet another defeat in the Premier League getting humiliated 4-1 by bottom side Watford.

Solskjear was embarrassed with the display of his side in the first half of the game despite David De Gea saving penalty twice.

The Reds went 2 goals down in the first half of the game as goals from King and Sarr gave the host a boost.

The Norwegian brought on Van De Beek and Anthony Martial in the second half of the game and it looks like United will rescue a point before a terrible mistake from Harry Maguire cost his side.

What the manager said.

“We started too late. We started at half-time. The second half was very good. In the first half we never turned up.

“They outfought us, we allowed them to get the ball in the box, we allowed them space. They won most of the challenges. And then you get to 40 minutes 1-0 down and you’re probably lucky to be 1-0 down, David made two fantastic saves from penalties and there were some blocks.

“But then that second goal came in. From half-time, the response was very good. I thought we played really well for half an hour until we ran out of legs. But it was nowhere near good enough of course. I’m not going to say anything but that.

“No, it didn’t. It was one of them. It almost went the other way. Maybe [we thought] we’re safe. I don’t know what went through the players’ minds of course.

“They’re in there, they’re giving everything they’ve got. We made some bad decisions, we didn’t react quick enough, so [it was] below par and not good enough.

Speaking about the impact of his second half substitute Solskjaer said: “Both of them, Anto [Martial] and Donny [van de Beek] played really well. That’s the irony of it.

“ In the second half, we played some fantastic stuff, created four or five big chances, Ben [Foster] had a couple of decent saves, we had a few more. But then of course it’s hard in the last 15 minutes playing with 10 men but I still thought we gave it a go second half and just couldn’t get the second goal that might have got us a point.”
