Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has expressed disappointment at Harry Maguire’s goal being ruled out for a foul in the first half against Burnley.

United had to battle hard to secure a 1-0 win at Turf Moor after the disallowed goal went against them.

They settled with the three points through a deflected Paul Pogba volley from the edge of the box in the second half.

But Ole Gunnar Solskjaer felt Maguire deserved a goal in the game.

“I’ve not watched any of them [incidents] so I can’t really say,” he said when asked by reporters about some of the refereeing decisions in the game.

“It might have been a foul apparently by Luke so that’s probably the right decision because it’s in the same phase of attack [Burnley player fouling Edinson Cavani – who was through on goal].

“Definitely not a foul by Harry on his goal, that’s… if you can’t jump and head it in like this, I don’t believe that is anywhere near a foul.

“Apart from that, we started playing after the five-minute stop with the red card and the foul by Luke so delighted with the response after a little bit of a tough first half an hour.”

“You have got to calm them down because I know the emotions are running high and they are disagreeing with some of the decisions that are made out there so it’s then our job to calm them down and make them focus on the things we can control,” he added.

“I thought we did that, second half we played really well and then you expect the onslaught the last five minutes but we held out.”
