Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has spoken out on the squad and Anthony Martial following their defeat against Sheffield United.

United suffered a 2-1 defeat to bottom-placed Sheffield on Wednesday and missed the chance to go top of the league ahead of manchester City. Currently, the Red Devils are second with one point behind City, who have played one game less.

Following the game, Martial came in for criticism from pundits and fans as his goal drought continued for another game. The centre forward has just one goal in their last 10 games. Overall this season he has made 25 appearances in which he has scored 5 goals.

Martial was also blamed for not putting in the effort to track back and atone for losing the ball in the build-up to Sheffield’s winning goal.

“I think the whole team will probably get criticism tonight and myself as well,” Solskjaer told a post-match press conference.

“I don’t think Anthony is exempt from that, I think we all should be criticised because we didn’t perform.

“I know Anthony is working really hard in training, working on his finishing, working on his movement.

“I’ve got no qualms that he’ll come good.”
