Manchester United fans were not happy with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s demeanour in the 94th minute of the draw against Everton.
Man United 1-1 Everton
The Red Devils enjoyed the lion’s share of possession in the opening period at Old Trafford, with Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford forced into making an impressive save to deny Edinson Cavani.
But United soon broke the deadlock via Anthony Martial two minutes from halftime.
The goal was a beauty, as Martial took a pass from Bruno Fernandes and found the top corner to give United a 1-0 lead.
Everton came roaring back in the second half, with Andros Townsend neatly smashing the ball past David De Gea to tie the game 1-1.
The Toffees almost bagged a win late in the game before VAR denied Yerry Mina a goal due to offside.
The difference between Solskjaer and Benitez was highlighted in the 94th minute of their 1-1 draw.
The Norwegian was seen smiling while Benitez, the opposing boss, was shouting instructions to his players.
The former United player is being scrutinized by fans who feel that he lacks the right attitude to be the manager of an illustrious club like United.
Here’s the reaction on Twitter –
That match shows the difference a manager can make. Benitez with average players at his disposal but great tactical knowledge vs. a manager with world class talent but zero tactical knowledge – Solskjaer.— Calum Pinder (@CalumJP23) October 2, 2021

All I think is what Sir Alex being doing at this point. Because that is the standard. And he wouldn’t be smiling with 1 point from 6 at home https://t.co/h9sj6zMtda— Mark Goldbridge (@markgoldbridge) October 2, 2021
Not exactly a manager who is commanding respect from his players… pic.twitter.com/QZM9etCAGI— Ed Aarons (@ed_aarons) October 2, 2021
