Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was left disappointed by the performance of his players in their slim win over Watford on Saturday evening.

The Red Devils huffed and puffed against Watford but they were still able to get the three points at stake in their bid to secure Champions League football for next season via the league route.

Many Manchester United fans expected a better outing from the players against the Hornets in what was the first game since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was confirmed as the permanent manager at Old Trafford.

The former club striker was named the new manager on a three-year deal on Thursday but his players were not able to match the enthusiasm that greeted his appointment with a good performance on the pitch.

After the game, Solskjaer told reporters that his side didn’t deserve the 2-1 win over the Hornets at Old Trafford before adding that it felt like they had drawn the game.

Marcus Rashford gave Manchester United a first-half lead before Anthony Martial added a second goal in the 72nd minute.

Watford pulled one back through Abdoulaye Doucoure on the stroke of halftime but the Red Devils held on to move into the top four at the expense of Arsenal who will play Newcastle United at the Emirates Stadium on Monday night.
