Ole Gunnar Solskjaer┬áhas compared Manchester United’s dressing-room atmosphere after the win over Watford to “a funeral”.

United edged to a 2-1 victory at home to an impressive Watford side at Old Trafford on Saturday, keeping their Champions League qualification hopes firmly intact – and propagating the myth of ‘knowing the club’.

Their midfield was sorely lacking and helped the visitors find a foothold, with Solskjaer himself admitting he might have to change Paul Pogba’s position in response.

The newly-permanent manager added that his squad were all “disappointed in their performance at full-time”.

“The feeling in the dressing room after was almost like a funeral,” he said.

“They were all sat there, it was very quiet, they were all disappointed in their performance at full-time.

“It’s not like jubilation because we won and we got the three points. They all know that this was a below-par performance, which is great because you want players to be honest with themselves.

“We know we can play so much better and they can do better.”
