Manchester United undergo another Premier League defeat. Yet, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer objects their absence of vehement determination.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer states his
appeared as if their "foot off the pedal" in the dissatisfying 1-0 domestic failure against Arsenal on Sunday.
United hit RB Leipzig 5-0 in the Champions League in midweek, however, performed worse than ever in front of Mikel Arteta's side, who were appreciating Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's 69th-minute penalty.

Solskjaer was disappointed with his side's appearance and says a lack of

"When you have played well you think you can take your foot off the pedal, but that is not how it works because this was a big game against a good team and you have to be absolutely spot on with everything.
"If you are slightly late for a tackle, they get away from you and you give a foul away and we weren't at the races.
