Solskjaer told reporters: “You make decisions for a long, long season and you have to manage the players’ workload. The decision was, for me, a correct one.
“Anthony Martial came in and did well, scored a good goal. Edinson [Cavani] needed minutes and got an hour, he could have scored.”
Asked after the game if he regretted leaving Ronaldo out, Solskjaer said: “No. You make decisions throughout a long, long season; you have to manage the players’ workload and the decision for me was the correct one.
“Anthony Martial did well, scored a good goal. Edinson [Cavani] needed minutes and could have had a goal. We have to make those decisions at the time.” Information Guide Nigeria
“We got hit on one break that cost us and we lacked that cutting edge to get the important second goal. We made a couple of decisions that cost us. We had players behind the ball when the ball was delivered and we should have dealt with it. We need to work on it because we are facing more and more opponents who allow us to have possession.”
“It’s a big month. We have to be focused and make sure we use the *international break well;* come back with energy and clear focus. The mindset is good, the players are hungry to improve. We dominated the game but just couldn’t get the second goal you need in games like this.
“I’m confident we will get the best out of this squad. A lot has happened this month [player arrivals]. We have loads to work on but I do believe in these players and this coaching staff. I believe we have something going but proof is in the pudding.”
Bruno, Speaking to BBC after the game, the Portuguese said:
“We should win this game. We should create more chances. We should not concede that kind of goal. It’s not the first time and we have to look at our mistakes and see what we can do.
“We don’t look at the league table at this moment but of course we should have more points. We drop points at home and we should not do that. These last two games at home was not good enough in the Premier League. If we want silverware at the end of the season we have to do much better.”
Townsend: Celebration wasn’t disrespectful to Ronaldo
Everton’s hero Andros Townsend produced Ronaldo’s trademark celebration after scoring, but speaking to BT Sport after the game, he claimed it was out of respect for the five-time Balon d’Or winner.
“This guy is my idol. I grew up watching him, hours on the training pitch trying to execute his techniques, maybe need to spend longer on his celebration! It wasn’t great execution!
“But it was respect to Ronaldo, honoured to be on the same field as him.”
