Man Utd boss Solskjaer: Worst performance of season

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer thinks Manchester United's first-half display against Manchester City was their worst of the season.

The Red Devils entered the break down 3-0 in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg at Old Trafford.

Marcus Rashford pulled one back for the hosts in the second-half, but Solskjaer was still reeling about the opening stanza when speaking after the game.

"From their goal until half-time it's the worst we've played," he told a news conference.

"Before then, it could've gone either way, a goal, but that doesn't matter now.

"We've just got to focus on Saturday, Norwich [City]. After that second half we've got something that we can believe in."
