Premier League: What Solskjaer Said About Controversial Arsenal Goal


Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has had his say on the controversial Arsenal goal that denied his team from registering the three points at stake during their Premier League encounter at the Theatre of Dreams on Monday night.

Solskjaer spoke to the media after the game and he blamed the assistant referee Scott Ledger for the mix-up that led to the Arsenal goal scored by the in-form Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on 58 minutes.

According to him, the assistant referee should have kept his flag down as it distracted his players who were slow to react to the goal scored by the aforementioned Aubameyang.

The Arsenal striker scored the controversial goal despite the flag raised by Scott Ledger who flagged him for offside when Aubameyang was clearly onside.

The Manchester United players especially Ashley Young didn’t play to the whistle as they were deceived by the flag raised by the assistant referee Scott Ledger.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said that the flag raised by the assistant manager impacted on Ashley Young who could have blocked the ball before Aubameyang found the back of the net with his seventh league goal of the season.

His goal cancelled out the first half strike from Scott McTominay as the two teams settled for a draw.
