Solskjaer reveals tactical switch helped secure victory at West Ham.
The Red Devils started the game poorly, with Ole resting the prolific Bruno Fernandes the side looked slow in building up an attack.
West Ham were sharp in front of goal and they could have been miles ahead but due to some poor decisions in front of goal that didn’t happen.
Goals from Paul Pogba, Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford in the second period, after Tomas Soucek West Ham ahead in the first half secured the victory for Manchester United.
“It is up and down and of course first half we struggled to keep up with their counterattacks and set-plays. I thought when we had the ball, we played with too slow a tempo, so we gave the ball away too often,” Solskjaer told MUTV
“Of course, we had most of the ball, but they counterattacked and looked dangerous. Poor first half, but the second half, the goal changes the mood,” he added.
“We tweaked a little bit of the tactics: the formation and the balance of the team. But the biggest thing was to clear everyone’s heads, because it seemed after they scored that we never got into our rhythm and we got stressed. So it was just to calm everyone down and stick to our brief in ourselves,” he ended.
