Solskjaer: Man United ‘a little bit off’ against Palace

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer suggested that his Manchester United side “never got going” in the second half against Crystal Palace.

    The Red Devils were far from their best as they were held at Selhurst Park. They had 63% possession but they only managed to register one shot on target over the course of the 90 minutes.

    Roy Hodgson’s side caused the visitors one or two problems in the second half, and they came close to winning the game in the final ten minutes.

    Patrick van Aanholt found himself one-on-one with Dean Henderson, but the goalkeeper was alert enough to make a vital stop.

    With this draw, United move back up to second after Leicester’s draw with Burnley. They are now 14 points behind leaders Man City ahead of this Sunday’s Manchester derby.

    Speaking post-match to Sky Sports, as cited by BBC Sport, Solskjaer said that his side struggled to build “momentum” against Palace:

    “It’s disappointing. We were just a little bit off. If you’re not spot on you won’t win games. Palace always make it hard for you. In the second half we never got going.

    “Sometimes it’s human nature, sometimes you don’t work at your best. Today we didn’t. It’s been a long season – I’m not blaming that because everyone has the same season. You’re playing against a good team who make you play the way they want to.

    “We kept giving the ball away. There were times in the first half we built some pressure, had some half decent chances but kept giving it away. Then you don’t build momentum and that’s the game you get.”

    On Henderson’s late save: “That’s a Man Utd goalkeeper, sometimes you have to keep concentrating. He’s growing in that position. I thank him for one point and not zero.”
