Solskjær Reflects On ‘Worst Day’ At United, Hits Out At Érik Lamela’s Play-Acting

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said his team's 6-1 hammering at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on Sunday was his worst day at the club.

It was United's joint worst loss in the Premier League era — equalling their 6-1 defeat by Manchester City in 2011.

"It's a horrible feeling, the worst day I've had as a Manchester United manager and player," said the Norwegian after his side, reduced to 10 men for the last hour, were ripped apart by Jose Mourinho's Spurs.

Manchester United Concedes 6 Of The Most Uniquely Dumb Goals Imaginable

Tottenham gave Manchester United a historic beatdown on Sunday, winning 6-1 at Old Trafford after scoring four goals in an opening 37-minute barrage that also saw Anthony Martial sent off.

We Hate To Break it To You, But Everton Is The Best Team In England Right Now

LIVERPOOL, England — James Rodriguez netted twice and Dominic Calvert-Lewin became the first Everton player to score in the opening four matches of a Premier League season as they beat Brighton & Hove Albion 4-2 on Saturday to stay top of the table with a maximum 12 points.

FYI: Wayne Rooney Is Still Scoring Bangers In Squeaky Bum Time

In many respects, Wayne Rooney has been written off by football fans and media alike. The former England star left Manchester United three years ago and even spent a couple seasons in MLS, so it might seem like he’s a faded has-been.

But don’t forget, at 34 Rooney is younger than Cristiano Ronaldo, who many still hold as the best pure striker in the world right now (sorry Lewa). He’s a month younger than Luka Modric, who won the Ballon d’Or two years ago. And Rooney can still provide moments of magic like few in the world can even dream of.
