Solskjaer slams penalty call after Arsenal loss

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has suggested that referee Jonathan Moss will be furious with himself for giving a penalty against Manchester United in Sunday’s reverse at the hands of Arsenal.

Caretaker manager Solskjaer suffered the first Premier League defeat of his United reign as goals from Granit Xhaka and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang sealed a 2-0 home win for the Gunners.

Solskjaer, however, took exception to Moss’ decision, and expected the official to think again once he had another chance to watch the incident.

“We started slowly, maybe a backlash from Wednesday night, but we created chances and when they get the first goal it becomes a different game,” the interim boss explained to Sky Sports.

“The referee will be disappointed when he sees it as I don’t think it is a penalty.

“We just had to go for it towards the end, but we were not really at it and it is one of those days where you have to dust yourselves down from. We have Wolves in the cup quarter-finals and it’s a big game to look forward to.”
