We didn't deserve three points, Man Utd's Solsljaer speaks

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said that the club didn't deserve all three points in last night's game against Southampton which ended in a 2-2 draw.

Southampton's late minute equalizer put a dent in United;'s ascension to the third position on the Premier League table, pushing the Champions League qualification battle down to the wire.

He told Sky Sports: "It's the worst time to concede a goal but that happens in football - you've just got to take it because we've won so many games that way ourselves. It's all part of the learning for this team to be sat there, really disappointed, after you think the three points are in the bag.

"But probably we didn't deserve three points today. They played well. They're physical, very fit. We never got the rhythm in our passing today, especially when we got to 2-1 but we created chances, played some fantastic football at times.

"We've had enough recovery; it was just one of those days where we didn't take our chances."
