Solskjaer denies Manchester United ‘psychological’ problem

Wed 06 January 2021 | 20:30

The Red Devils were defeated in the Carabao cup semi-final against Manchester City.

Two goals from John Stones and Fernandinho were enough for Pep Guardiola’s team to reach the Carabao cup final as

Manchester United

were not able to display their best form. While

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

’s team have achieved good results in the domestic competitions they have struggled to reach finals and have been eliminated from all four semi-finals that they have played since Solskjaer has took the charge at Old Trafford. Despite their Wednesday defeat against

Manchester City

, Solskjaer believes that their problem to win the semi-finals doesn’t indicate a ‘psychological’ issue.

"Manchester City can score many great goals. You can accept that. When you concede two simple set-plays, it's very disappointing. Just not good enough in those moments,"

he told 

Sky Sports.

"We didn't create enough big chances. They didn't either. We didn't have the extra finesse we've had in the games lately. We weren't good enough today.

"We played against a very good Manchester City team. They played well. When they play well you have to play very well to beat them. We were just lacking that little bit.

"We're getting closer. This is a much better version of United than a year ago in those semis.

"It's not psychological [losing in four semi-finals]. Sometimes you meet good teams in the semis. We met City who, at the moment, are probably the best team in England."

Manchester United will face


in the FA Cup on Saturday before continuing their

Premier League

campaign with a match against Burnley three days later.
