Loads of Man United fans have been left furious after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted Jack Grealish’s goal ‘knocked us a bit emotionally’ in Sunday’s clash with Aston Villa.
According to @utdreport, Solskjaer made the rather startling admission immediately after the full-time whistle on Sunday.
Solskjær: "It [Grealish's goal] knocked us a bit emotionally. I think we didn't settle in the game and we were lucky to go in at half-time one each." #mulive [bein]

The Red Devils bounced back from Grealish’s stunning early strike, with Marcus Rashford forcing an own goal on the cusp of half-time before Victor Lindelof put the hosts in front after the break.
Tyrone Mings answered almost immediately though, and the match petered out to a 2-2 draw.
Solskjaer’s side managed just six shots on target in the entire match, with a particularly woeful performance in the first half leaving the 20-time champions of England a rather ridiculous 22 points behind Liverpool.
Given the lofty ambitions fans still have in the red half of Manchester, their manager’s comment that his side were ‘lucky’ to be drawing with a newly-promoted side at half-time has understandably left fans fuming.

What is this? we never should be lucky to draw at half time against Villa.

A GOAL KNOCKED THE TEAM EMOTIONALLY.
Never seen such a weak manager at united. Moyes was roasted for saying we are aspiring to be like man city. How deep the standard of this club went down. #MUFC
