The Daily Express has narrated how key figures at Manchester United reacted to the first half performance by manager Solskjaer and his players during the Carabao Cup meeting with Manchester City earlier this week.
The publication from the Daily Express quoted a close source to Manchester United as it was revealed that both Sir Alex Ferguson and Ed Woodward were visibly sad with the tame performance from the Manchester United players as opponents and city rivals Manchester City raced to a 3-0 lead at the haltime interval.

Sir Alex Ferguson didn’t utter any word to anyone as he was desperate to retire to his office, while chief executive Ed Woodward had his head in his hands over what he has just witnessed.
Manchester City bossed game and see good value for that halftime lead courtesy the goals from Bernardo Silva, Riyad Mahrez and Andreas Pereira who scored an own goal to give his team a big mountain to climb.
Manchester United were much better in the second half largely due to the introduction of Serbian international Nemanja Matic and they went on to get the goal from Marcus Rashford in the 70th minute to ensure that they are in the tie ahead of the second leg later this month.
