Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Chelsea never put his Manchester United team under pressure during the goalless draw at Old Trafford on Saturday.

According to Solskjaer, Manchester United deserved to beat as they created the better chances and controlled the game.

“I think [it was] two teams that played in Europe this week,” Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told the official Man United game after a 0-0 draw with Chelsea. “I think that showed a bit, the first half wasn’t the greatest.

“I think in the second half we pushed on, and if the Stretford End is full we might get some help and get that ball over the line.

“I think we pegged them back, created half-decent opportunities – a great block from Thiago Silva and a great save from the keeper [at the end]. He made a couple of fantastic saves from Marcus [Rashford], so all in all, it was a good defensive performance and we created enough big chances, or at least the two biggest, that could have given us the win.”

“We felt in control,” Solskjaer added. “I didn’t really feel at any moment they were putting too much pressure on us.

“I felt in the second half we put pressure on them but we just didn’t have that extra edge to score a goal, apart from, of course, the two chances that Marcus had. I’ve just got to praise the keeper because those two saves are just fantastic.”
