Solskjaer's verdict on the defeat to Watford
The manager has delivered his opinion on the performance and result at Vicarage Road...
How do you reflect on that? "It's very disappointing. I'm disappointed with the first half, more than the second to be fair. It was slow, a testimonial pace, no urgency and coming into half-time, you expect a reaction. Of course they score that first goal, it's a freak thing. That happens in football at times. And we couldn't recover from it." It was weird first half, flat all around the ground. Hard to explain? "There was no atmosphere, we couldn't get the tempo in our play, intensity in our play, quality in our play. We never really did that until they scored the two goals. We then really had to create chances and we did - but we didn't take them." It looked like a freak goal would be needed to break the deadlock and that's what happened. You wouldn't expect that from David, would you? "No, you don't but that happens to anyone, everyone in football, you make a mistake like this. It's about reaction now, both from David and from ourselves as a team. We've got two games coming up over Christmas and we need to bounce back." Paul came on and clearly made an impact in terms of creativity and goal threat. Good to see? "Yes, it's a big plus. The boy has been working hard, he's been desperate to play football and he came on and showed that hunger, urgency, quality so I'm sure we'll benefit from him coming back." There isn't a lot of time to reflect because games come quickly at this time of year. Is that a good thing, to be back in action again in a couple of days? "Yes, definitely, you want to get back to Old Trafford and win because that's not good enough. We know we have a tough spell, loads of games coming up, but that's what they [the players] want know and I'm sure they'll... well, we have to see a reaction."
