Man Utd dri fur­ther be­hind

The Citizen (KZN) - - Internatio­nal - Lon­don

– Manch­ester United’s 2-2 draw with As­ton Villa on Sun­day left them ninth in the Premier League, and a mas­sive 22 points be­hind lead­ers Liver­pool, but man­ager Ole Gun­nar Sol­sk­jaer says he is not overly con­cerned about their cur­rent po­si­tion.

United re­cov­ered from Jack Gre­al­ish’s 11th-minute opener to move in front cour­tesy of an own goal by Tom Heaton and a header from Vic­tor Lin­de­lof, only to be pegged back by a Ty­rone Mings vol­ley.

A win would have lifted United to fifth, though Sol­sk­jaer said his team did not show enough qual­ity to get the three points.

“I wouldn’t have sat here and talked about us be­ing fifth if we had got that one goal ex­tra, so the league ta­ble at this point is not the big­gest con­cern be­cause it is so tight,” Sol­sk­jaer said.

“We cre­ated loads of big chances that should have won this game but over­all didn’t de­serve it.” –
