    Solskjaer silent on Kane speculation after Man Utd flop against Fulham

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer refused to talk about the possibility of Manchester United signing Harry Kane despite a disappointing performance in their 1-1 draw with Fulham.

    Edinson Cavani’s stunning 10th-minute lob seemingly had United on course for a routine win against relegated opposition that would have secured second place in the Premier League.

    But a failure to make their dominance count saw them pegged back late on by Joe Bryan’s header, meaning United are three games without a win.

    United have now conceded 28 home goals in the Premier League this season – they last conceded more at Old Trafford in a single campaign back in 1962-63 (38).

    Solskjaer’s men have also dropped 10 points from winning positions at home, their highest total at Old Trafford in a Premier League season.

    But United were arguably fortunate to claim a share of the spoils, Fulham finishing the game with a minor edge in expected goals of 1.0 to 0.8

    Kane reportedly wants to leave Tottenham and has scored 22 league goals this season, outperforming an xG of 19.8.

    But asked about the potential availability of the Spurs star, Solskjaer told Sky Sports: “I can’t talk about players that are on other teams. I don’t think that’s respectful of any team, any players. I can’t talk about that.”

    On United’s display in front of 10,000 returning fans, he said: “I don’t think we put on the performance that they wanted and maybe deserved. We had some good spells but not enough.

    “We were too loose, giving the ball away too often, maybe it’s because the crowd came in and we wanted to entertain them, maybe it would be more entertaining if we played properly and scored goals.

    “We’ve lost eight points in a period where we should be bouncing going into the next game, looking forward to it, looking forward to the [Europa League] final, going into that confident, but we need to sort a few things out.”
