Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had the audacity to suggest there was no foul on Divock Origi in the buildup to Manchester United’s goal, yesterday.
Victor Lindelof clearly kicked Divock Origi, which in turn won the home side the ball back – and seven seconds later – United had scored…
We were 100% convinced the goal would be overturned following a VAR review, but for an unknown reason, whoever was sat in front of the television at Stockley Park didn’t believe the foul warranted changing Martin Atkinson’s original decision.
Solskjaer said it was the right decision, citing his former tea-mate Roy Keane as evidence.
The Irishman, however, didn’t agree! You can see the comments in the tweet below:
Solksjaer: "The referee deserves praise. I think he was excellent. He let it be a derby game. It (the foul on Origi) is never a foul! I don't think Keano in the studio would say that's a foul."
Roy Keane: "Yeah it's a foul."

Hearing Solskjaer celebrate Atkinson’s performance is really annoying – but in reality – we didn’t play with enough cutting edge.
In the final ten minutes we dominated, but before that, our passing was poor and lacked precision.
We missed Mo Salah’s pace and energy, too – but thankfully the Egyptian should be back midweek for the Champions League tie with Genk.
