Ole Gunnar Solskjaer angry with Aston Villa stars for what they did before penalty miss

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has called out Aston Villa players for ‘getting round Bruno Fernandes ‘ before his missed penalty – but then insisted that his midfielder wasn’t put off by them.

Kortney Hause found the net during the closing stages before giving away a penalty for hand ball, and his colleagues immediately protested the debatable decision.

With Fernandes picking up the ball ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo, Villa players swarmed the penalty spot with Emiliano Martinez appearing to tell the former Juventus striker to take it.

Following the miss from Fernandes, which cost Manchester United a point and handed them their first Premier League defeat of the season, Solskjaer was far from pleased.

Solskjaer said: “First of all the way they get round the penalty spot, get round Bruno and that, that’s not to my liking. Bruno is usually very good in those positions and unfortunately he missed this one.”

Adding: “It doesn’t get in Bruno’s head. He’s strong mentally and he’ll step forward again.

“The decision (on who takes penalties) is made before the game.”

Villa goalscorer Hause later admitted to Match of the Day his relief: “When they gave the penalty I was devastated and fuming with myself.

“Looking back I didn’t make myself any bigger. I’ve tried to bring my arms in so when Bruno blazed it over the bar I was relieved. I think it was justice in the end because I don’t think it was a penalty.

“The rules are the rules. All we can do as players is play the game and play it well and whatever decision the referees and VAR want to give we have to get on with it.

“We had the better chances. We haven’t really had to defend too tough as a team but we’ve come away with the three points and that’s all that matters. We’re happy.”

Villa boss Dean Smith added: “I thought we deserved the win today. We were aggressive and brave and you have to be coming here.”

Saying of the penalty: “I’ve seen it back.

“I thought it was a very harsh penalty. I’m not sure where is is supposed to put his arms when it flashes across. For me, justice was done when he missed it.”
