Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was later quizzed on the incident and was quick to state that it was merely the product of his side’s “high standards”.

Speaking to reporters, Ole said:

“We have got a group that demands a lot of each other
“The standard is high, both on training and in a game, it is not just about being a nice guy.
“I never thought they threatened our goal in the second half but we missed a little bit of spark to win the game.”

Harry Maguire who faced the press after the full-time whistle failed to comment on the incident, but instead, he turned his attention to the upcoming Europa League semi-final against Roma scheduled on Thursday.

Maguire told Sky Sports :

“It was tight. We had control of the game without punishing them.
“We knew how they would play, our attacking players love a one v one but today it wasn’t to be.

“We kept them to a minimum, we were solid. We just couldn’t find that edge. The intensity was there, both teams were trying to play the right way.

“Bruno Fernandes had the best chance of the game and on another day he puts it in the back of the net and we take the points. It’s a big week for us.”
