Solskjaer defiant as Reds slip up
Manchester United have no room for error in their top-four quest following a 2-1 defeat at Wolves, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted.
Chris Smalling's own goal condemned 10-man United to defeat - their third in four games - as they missed the chance to climb back into the Champions League spots.
Scott McTominay's first United goal put the visitors ahead but Fred's mistake allowed Diogo Jota to level in the first half and Ashley Young was sent off mid-way through the second half for two bookings in five minutes.
United remain fifth in the Premier League, behind Tottenham on goal difference, with six games left and face Barcelona in their Champions League quarter-final first leg next week.
Solskjaer said: "I said we needed 15 points from the last seven games (to make the top four), we now need 15 in the last six, so we don't have room for many more losses.
"We are a very good team, so it'll be difficult for anyone playing against us. Our performance deserved the win. We created our own downfall. It was a very good performance until they scored their second goal.
"But for their keeper we should have won. We created enough chances to win the game so I don't think there's any 'resetting' (after his fast start as United manager)."
United should have been 3-0 up inside 16 minutes as Romelu Lukaku and Jesse Lingard missed glorious chances either side of McTominay scoring his first goal for the club.
