Solskjaer finally reveals why Man United are winning penalties this season

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Man United’s good skills are responsible for penalties awarded to the side.

The Old Trafford dwellers have won four penalties in five matches so far in the Premier League this season.

United have managed to convert just two of the four spot kicks against Chelsea and Leicester City.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed his side’s style of play is winning Manchester United so many penalties this season.

United have already been awarded four penalties in five Premier League season matches, managing to convert only two of them.

Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford have each missed from the spot, with the former’s miss denying United vital points against Wolves at Molineux.

However, Rashford made amends for his Crystal Palace miss with a well-taken spot-kick against Leicester City on Saturday, September 14, to win the Red Devils maximum points at Old Trafford.

The Englishman won United’s penalties against the Foxes and Chelsea, while Pogba was at Wolves, before Scott McTominay being tripped against Palace.

Solskjaer has now come out to suggest his side could still have more penalties in the upcoming matches, asserting his players’ nature of play could be reason they are being awarded spot-kicks.

“I think it’s the type of players we’ve got,” Solskjaer explained when asked why the Old Trafford dwellers have won four penalties already.”

“They’ve got quick feet, good skills and most of them haven’t even been debatable. They’ve got skills and when we get Antho [Martial] back as well, I’m sure we’ll have loads of claims. And with VAR (Video Assistant Referee) you’ll get more than you don’t,”he continued.
