The Red Devils were condemned to their fourth defeat of the season by struggling Bournemouth who scored the only goal of the game via Josh King’s shot just before half-time.
Despite United’s obvious zeal and efforts to equalize, the goal didn’t come as Eddie Howe’s side held on to the slim victory.
Former United star Ryan Giggs has pointed out two things that were lacking in Solskjaer’s team during the encounter.
According to him, the Red Devils started stronger than their opponents but the strikers lacked concentration during the game which was the reason why they missed some clear-cut chances.

“They started the much better of the sides and when you’re on top and you’re getting five or six attempts you’ve got to hit the target.
“I think there was only Anthony Martial’s weak shot that only hit the target, so that’s about concentration,”
Giggs also said that the team suffered from Paul Pogba’s absence as there was no attacking midfielder to create many opportunities. He claimed that Solskjaer’s men lacked quality at the final third of the pitch and that cost them the three points at the end.
“But just not enough quality in the final third. That’s when this United team struggle – breaking down stubborn defenses. Who’s that creative player playing in the pockets? Who is giving the width, those constant crosses switching the ball?” he concluded
