Here’s Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s response. He says Lingard, Mata and Herrera all have hamstring injuries:
You’ve always got to be ready for everything, but losing three players in the first half with hamstring injuries, and probably we should have taken Marcus off as well. Henderson went through him in the first minute and that was just one of many fouls on him today. I was very concerned, but he’s a warrior and he’s a Manc, and he knows what this means. We had to keep him on, because we’d already used three subs.
You come out with so many positives today. The fans, they were the 11th man today because we had half a Marcus. I can’t remember David having to make a save. We kept them out of it and we created a couple of chances where we could have scored.
We’ve lost a few with muscle injuries, hamstrings. But we’ve got some good kids coming through. We’ll have 11 players on the pitch on Wednesday night as well
Jürgen Klopp says he isn’t frustrated. However, he certainly sounds frustrated:
It was a strange game. We started really well, and then the injury crisis started as well. That obviously cost us rhythm. In the end we have to admit that United played with a completely new midfield, a pretty much new three up front, but we lost the rhythm and we couldn’t get it back. It was a game without a lot of highlights. It was intense of course, but for sure it’s for United a point they won and for us we lost two. When United is beatable you have to do it, and we didn’t do it. I’m not frustrated. I’ll always take what I get from the boys. It doesn’t feel world class at the moment but it’s OK, we have a point more.
We didn’t play a lot of wonderful football. It was not flexible enough. The build-up from deep was OK, but then of course you need to keep the ball in the right areas, you need to shoot, and we didn’t do these things often enough.
Look, form and confidence, in football you can work for it. Luck you can work for. Everything you can work for in football, but you really have to try. The attitude of the boys is not questioned, but keep cool, pass the ball around, go into the right areas. That could have happened more often, but obviously not today.
Here’s James Milner’s hot take:
I’d say a clean sheet is pleasing, it’s not an easy place to come. We made all the running, didn’t create as many chances as we’d have liked. We go into every game to win, but hopefully it’s a good point at the end of the season. We’ll only know after 38 games.
I don’t think we were good enough with our movement. Around the box we couldn’t open them up as often as we’d like. They’re a confident team at the moment and they’re well organised, but with the players we’ve got we’d have liked to have created more opportunities.
We want to win every game, no matter who it’s against, and we know we can. So when you come off and you haven’t won it’s always disappointing. We’ve got to look where we can improve when we’ve got the ball and teams are sat back. That’s something we have to adapt to and work out how to break down.
