Solskjaer admits Man Utd lacked necessary quality

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says West Ham's quality proved the difference for Sunday's 2-0 defeat.

Goals from Andriy Yarmolenko and Aaron Cresswell earned West Ham their second successive home win against Manchester United, who remain without a league win on their travels since February.

Solskjaer said, "As with many even Premier League games it will be decided by quality at one end and today it was them with two very good goals. We could have done better defending them and we should have scored ourselves."

He added: "I thought we pushed them back but just didn't have that little edge and little bit extra and the quality that we should have had."
