Solskjær: 'We can play better, but to come away with a point shows how far we've come'

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær feels there's more in his side than what they produced at Anfield in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

United and Liverpool played out a 0-0 draw and with the point, Solskjær's side remain top of the table.

The visitors had the better chances in the game, particularly in the second half with Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes both denied by excellent saves from Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Solskjær wasn't fully satisfied with the performance.

"I don't think we played well enough. We didn't impose ourselves on the game, especially in the first half.

"I think we grew in the game, into the game and towards the end you felt it was there for us to win and we created two massive chances and [there were] two brilliant saves by the keeper.

"We can play better than this, we know that, we can be more composed, we can have the ball more, we had to defend really often and I thought we gave the ball away too often.

"Some moments we missed, when Marcus [Rashford] makes his runs in behind, maybe sometimes don't pass it every time he runs and sometimes we missed it when he should have had it so there's a couple of things we need to improve on."

Solskjær was keen though to point out the gravity of the task that taking on Liverpool at Anfield is.

He also had particular praise for midfielder Pogba and hopes they can use the result to push on even further in the title race.

"I think Paul [Pogba] was absolutely brilliant today. We knew that he had to do a job defensively, block and help us with Robertson and I thought he was excellent and should have got the goal his performance deserved.

"I've got to be honest to say that I'm a bit disappointed at the moment but still you're playing against a fantastic team and they had more of the possession but still with the injuries they've had lately you think you can go here and get a result, we didn't but a point might be ok if we win the next one.

"I know we can play better but we're still coming away from here with a point, which shows how far we've come in a year or even six months.

"It's a positive - you take a point but you want to win every game so you can't really be stood here smiling too much but we go again and we know that we can do better than this which is the positive."
