Solskjær reacts to 3-3 draw with Everton

Manchester United masterminded their own downfall once again as they let a two-goal lead slip in three minutes before conceding another equaliser with the last kick of the game after regaining their lead.

Goals from Edinson Cavani and Bruno Fernandes in the first half had Solskjær’s side in cruise control but they completely capitulated after the interval.

An error from David de Gea gifted Everton a lifeline before more woeful defending saw James Rodriguez even the scores just three minutes after.

Scott McTominay headed in United’s third but it proved to be meaningless as United’s calamitous defending continued.

A free-kick deep into extra-time allowed Everton to push everyone into the box where a flicked header found Calvert-Lewin who unchallenged equalized and won the visitors a point.

“Second half, we played some good football but we concede three goals from three shots on target,” Ole said after the game. “When you have three shots between the posts and you concede three goals that’s disappointing of course because we played some very good stuff.”

“You’re never 100% comfortable (against Everton’s attackers). I think we played it well after they scored two quick goals. We reacted well, created chances, dominated possession but why there was four minutes (added time) is beyond me compared to the three minutes the other day.

“All we have to do is get the ball into the corner and see it out but we didn’t. Poor goals to concede, definitely. During a game you expect two or three good moments from the opponents but it’s very disappointing in the last minute of added time.”

United will need to pick themselves up quickly – next up is a midweek fifth round FA Cup tie when West Ham make the trip to Old Trafford.
