Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Manchester United were left to rue missed opportunities, as the Reds endured a 2-0 defeat to West Ham United at the London Stadium.

Andriy Yarmolenko curled in the opener for the Hammers on the stroke of half-time, before Aaron Cresswell’s free-kick secured all three points for the Hammers with six minutes to spare.

United had two great opportunities to draw level in the second half, as Juan Mata put the ball wide from close range, while Harry Maguire had a powerful strike parried away by Lukasz Fabianski.

”We didn’t create enough chances, but we did create big chances that we didn’t take. They didn’t create too many either and it’s a game that could have gone both ways,” the Norwegian quipped.

“We had the momentum but that doesn’t always give you goals,” he added

The Reds have now endured two loses, two draws and two wins in their opening six matches of the new Premier League season, leaving them a distant eighth in the log with eight points, ten off leaders Liverpool.
