Ole: Man United are not title contenders

English Premier League

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says his charges should not even be considered as title chasers after dropping points on Saturday night.

The Red Devils missed the chance to move level on points with Premier League leaders Manchester City after drawing 3-3 with Everton, who netted an equaliser deep in stoppage time.

The Norwegian claims the title chasing talk has been brought up by the media as they are not talking about winning leagues.

“We are not talking about winning titles. We have come a long way, this team," he told Sky Sports.

“We should not even be considered as title chasers. That is more talk that you (the media) are saying.

“We need to be better as a team and see where we end up. Going forward, we need to stop conceding easy goals.”

Solskjaer also refused to blame anyone for the goals conceded, including David de Gea's howler for Everton's first goal.

"We played some good football in the second half but conceded three goals from three shots on target. When you do that it is disappointing," he added

"I wouldn't blame anyone on the goals but we know we could have done better as a team on all of them.

“Results create the mood, the last kick of the ball makes us go home really disappointed. We have lost two points on a long thump upfield which we should have defended.”
