United boss Solskjaer send message to players after a disappoint defeat to Leicester in the Premier League.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has told his players they need to “look themselves in the mirror” after a 4-2 defeat at Leicester City.

The Norwegian’s team have won just one of their last five games and after the disappointing defeat he urge his players to turn things around against Atalanta in the Champions League.

“We all need to do better, we have to do better,” Solskjaer told a news conference. “Every game in the Premier League and Champions League, they’re big games, all of them. Leicester is just as big a game as Atalanta.

“We’ve got to dust ourselves off and make sure we come in again and look ourselves in the mirror. That’s the nature of football, you’ve got to respond to setbacks.”


A disappointing defensive display by the United defender cost the team despite scoring first in the game.

Solskjaer was forced to defend his selection of Maguire, who was only able to return to training on Friday morning after three weeks out with a calf injury.

“It was my decision to play Harry,” he said. “He’s worked really hard on the rehab and he looked ready. He didn’t feel any after-effects after training.

“He’s a big, massive player for us, the captain, the leader. We want to bring him back as soon as we can because he’s been so influential in our play.

“We didn’t defend well enough and all of the goals were disappointing in how we conceded them.”
