Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reveals referee's report admits two big errors cost Man Utd

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has claimed that the referee’s report admitted to two key errors which cost Manchester United in their defeat to Sheffield United last month.

United lost ground in the title race after they were beaten 2-1 at home by Chris Wilder’s side.

But United were aggrieved during the match at Old Trafford as Billy Sharp pushed David De Gea in the build-up to Kean Bryan’s goal.

United were then denied a goal after Aaron Ramsdale’s poor handling allowed Anthony Martial to finish from close range, but the effort was ruled out as Harry Maguire was pulled up for a nudge on the Sheffield United goalkeeper.

However, Solskjaer has revealed that the post-match report from the Premier League officials conceded that the two incidents were the wrong decision.

‘I don’t like to bring these up, the momentum shifted for us with the Sheffield United game, but I’ve got the delegates’ report from the ref and the two decisions were wrong,’ said Solskjaer.

‘They’ve admitted their goal should have been disallowed and our goal should have stood. That’s a big, big momentum changer for us.

‘You’re more likely to, when you go 1-0 up rather than 1-0 down, go on and win that game. So that’s fine margins and it has been the way this season, fine margins.

‘You hit the post, it goes in or it goes out, sometimes you’re lucky with decisions, sometimes you’re not.

We’ve got to focus on this game and I’m sure the results and performances will come.’
