Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Jurgen Klopp

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer seemingly suggested that Jurgen Klopp and his comments last season have ensured that Manchester United has not seen any penalty decisions go their way. Solskjaer revealed that he felt they should have been given three penalties in their last two games against West Ham. Martin Atkinson waved off two penalty shouts involving Cristiano Ronaldo in the game. Last season, Klopp brought forward that United was awarded 11 penalties in the league.

“We just have to hope that we get what we deserve,” Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said without naming Jurgen Klopp. “We should have had three penalties in the last two games. A certain manager last year was starting to worry about us getting penalties last season and after that, it seems like the decisions are more difficult to give. I’ve seen a big, big difference since then on. But we have to just leave that up to the referees and hopefully, they’ll make the right calls soon.”

Manchester United striker Edison Cavani is set to return to the squad after he has missed the start of the season due to injury.

“He is in the squad tomorrow,” added Solskjaer. “He’s been training and now he feels ready to contribute. “He came on against Wolves and then he got a slight strain in the international break when we had a [behind closed doors] game. He is ready again, he has worked really hard and diligently as he always does, and hopefully, he will have an impact as he had last season.”
