Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer blames Jurgen Klopp for lack of penalties

Following remarks made by Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes his team is not getting penalties. 

"I hear Manchester United has had more penalties in two years than I have had in five and a half years," Klopp stated in January. 

"Last year, there was a manager who was starting to be concerned about us getting penalties," Solskjaer added. 

"After that, it appears that making decisions becomes more difficult." 

In a 2-1 league win over West Ham last Sunday, Solskjaer thought his side was denied "two stonewall penalties," and he also felt his side should have had a penalty in a Carabao Cup defeat by the Hammers on Wednesday.

Klopp made his remarks during a 1-0 loss to Southampton last season, in which he believed his team should have been awarded a penalty. 

"Certainly, I've seen a tremendous, big difference since then," Solskjaer remarked. 

"But we'll just have to trust the officials and hope that they make the correct decisions soon." 

United will face Aston Villa at 12:30 BST on Saturday, level on 13 points with Liverpool after five Premier League games.
