Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer claims his Manchester United team would have gotten all three points against Chelsea but for Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy.

“Two good teams, quality in either end of the pitch. You can see their keeper today, I think he’s the match winner,” Solskjaer told MUTV after the goalless draw against Chelsea.

“Two fantastic saves from Marcus. The one in the second half, an unbelievable save, I’m standing just behind it and following it to the top corner. Great finish, great save.

“The first one was well blocked with his right foot. So I think it’s an even game. I think we started a bit slow and didn’t really put our authority on the game, but after about 20/25 minutes I felt we took over and built pressure.

“And I’m sure if that Stretford End was full it’s going to be a magic night, as it is so many times in this stadium, because they suck that ball into the goal and we just missed that edge today.”

He added: “I’ve just got to praise the keeper, because them two saves are fantastic.”

  1. I’m equally praising the referee for not awarding chelsea a penalty. Otherwise, Chelsea would have won that game!
