Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: David De Gea not at fault

Arsenal move above Man Utd as Solskjaer suffers first league defeat

Arsenal move above Man Utd as Solskjaer suffers first league defeat

With Tottenham's title challenge realistically over, their goals are to progress in the Champions League and hold off Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea to qualify again next season. I think we are improving.

"This was a different response to the last time Manchester United were here. We don't play against the other top-six teams, so I think we can beat the others". I want to say thank you to our supporters because they helped us a lot today. The extra prize money and television revenue are welcome of course but expanded commercial opportunities, bigger sponsorships, the ability to attract better players and never having to play at 5.55pm on a Thursday night all have benefits far beyond a few million pounds for reaching the Champions League round-of-16 rather than the Europa League semi-final.

Emery was asked if Aubameyang felt the negativity of his penalty miss in the North London Derby last weekend and he said: "Yes he did but he has a lot of experience and he is a specialist to score". "I don't want that".

The Gunners have an impressive home record this season and extended their run to 15 league games without defeat at the Emirates Stadium with a 2-0 win which moves them above United and into fourth. There is no change as it is continuing and it will be hard.

All three of these clubs have shown in recent years that they can survive a season or two outside Uefa's top competition but for each of them clubs there are also clear and obvious immediate consequences of missing out.

"We have won games we have not deserved to win, and today we lost a game we did not deserve to lose".

Oil prices rise on OPEC's supply cuts and healthy demand
OPEC, Russia and other producers, known as OPEC+, agreed in December to reduce supply by 1.2 million bpd from January 1 for six months.

"We knew before the game about our chance because Manchester United had one point more than us".

The former FC Barcelona and Udinese man has scored one goal and made three assists in 17 Premier League games this season.

Solskjaer, who tasted domestic defeat for the first time since his appointment as caretaker manager in December, saw both Romelu Lukaku and Fred hit the woodwork. Sometimes, you don't take them and we just didn't take them.

In terms of the result, Solskjaer refused to blame De Gea for not keeping out Xhaka's curling effort, instead questioning why his defence afforded the Switzerland global so much room. "I was stood right behind the ball and we don't put enough pressure on Xhaka, who must be Brazilian by the way because he struck the ball and it swerves and moves".

"It goes towards David's left and changes direction. It's one of those things". "We are two points behind fourth and 3 points behind third which is a good position to be in".
