Indeed, after loosing against Westham on Wednesday, United fans expected their team to rise to the occasion with a morale boosting win against Astonvilla on Saturday.
However, Villa were able to cause United multiple problems during the game as United struggled to cope with their counter attacks.
Hence, Villa's hardwork soon paid of in the second half as they scored from a corner.
Despite winning a penalty however, United could still not get past Emiliano Martinez, whose mind games against Ronaldo seemed to affect Bruno's concentration in the build up to his missed spot kick.
However after the game Soleskjaer, Soleskjaer was asked why United lost. His answer however only moved to infuriate Man United fans more, who were convinced that the manager was underperforming in his role.
According to Soleskjaer, Astonvilla players were to blame for Bruno missing the penalty because of how they crowded him.
The manager also claimed that Astonvilla's goal shouldn't have counted since Degea was being blocked by a player who was in an off-side position.
However, it's worth noting that there was no way Degea could have stopped that goal from going in. Here are some reactions from Man United fans to Soleskjaer's reasons for the loss.
