Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Manchester United cannot be considered title contenders after they twice blew a lead to draw 3-3 with Everton in a Premier League clash at Old Trafford on Saturday evening.
Goals from Edinson Cavani and Bruno Fernandes saw Man United take the lead but sloppy defending allowed Everton to get back on level terms through Abdoulaye Doucoure and James Rodriguez.
Scott McTominay fired Solskjaer’s side into the lead in the 70th minute but they were stunned in stoppage time as the visitors snatched a draw with the last kick of the game from Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
A win would have taken Man United level on points with leaders Manchester City, who then beat champions Liverpool 4-1 on Sunday.
“We shouldn’t even be considered as title-chasers,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports.
“We’ve got to be better as a team and let’s see where we end up. Going forward, we need to stop conceding easy goals.
“When it’s in the last minute of added time it’s very disappointing. I wouldn’t blame anyone on the goals but we know we can defend better.”
