Ole Gunnar Solskjaer slams own team, says Manchester United deserve Europa League

Tottenham Hotspur's defender Eric Dier kicks the legs of Bournemouth's striker Callum Wilson

The point left Solskjaer's side four points behind fourth-placed Tottenham with one game left, with a sixth-place finish behind Arsenal appearing likely.

"It's never good news, but it shows us where we are", he said.

"The players were running, were trying and we just weren't good enough".

As United look to overhaul their squad, the threat of a season without Champions League football does not worry Solskjaer. That is the problem.

"We've got to find a way of playing - what is the best?"

However, he made amends on the hour mark when he launched a long ball upfield - following a poor United corner - which Luke Shaw failed to intercept and Isaac Mbenza coolly slotted past David De Gea. "Hopefully we can produce better performances and they [City and Liverpool] can produce worse and we'll get closer".

United's winless run was extended to five matches in all competitions and Solskjaer was left to rue several missed opportunities for them to rescue their season.

Solksjaer also lamented the concdeing of the equaliser in the second half calling it: "Very avoidable, we've conceded too many of those this season". We weren't able to. Next year they will be in the Europa League, a level Solskjaer says is fair indicator of where United are.

"They're not letting me down, we're a team, we've been working really hard".

Solskjaer was referring to the possibility of his side having to play in a Europa League qualifier should Watford beat City in the FA Cup final.

"There was always going to be a period in this game Huddersfield would press us because of the energy of the crowd". The goal stung even more as Mbenza coolly finished between De Gea's legs.

Pogba hit the crossbar again in the closing stages with a shot from outside the area, but Huddersfield held on.

Solskjaer has a massive job on his hands but finding players simply willing to run for United would be a brilliant place to start.

"Do you know what it reminds me of? We have to make something positive out of it".

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men started the game brightly and took the lead after just eight minutes when Huddersfield goalkeeper Jonas Lossl somehow let Scott McTominay's effort squirm under him.

The ex-skipper said there is "nothing about this United team I like at all" and said "they're a despondent group of people" similar to the group Mauricio Pochettino inherited at Tottenham.

A number of players are set to leave Old Trafford at the end of the season, including captain Antonio Valencia, while midfielder Ander Herrera and forward Juan Mata are both out of contract. "We want to get to a shape on and off the ball that we're comfortable with".

Town chairman Dean Hoyle is in the process of selling the club to lifelong Terriers fan Phil Hodgkinson, and Siewert paid tribute to the club's popular out-going owner. "He was one of the reasons I signed for this club and the legacy he leaves here will be carried on".
