However Solskjaer’s side rose impressively after half time, with Marcus Rashford’s very good finish complemented by 19-year-old Greenwood wrapped a 2-1 victory with a diving header.
“We have finished that a number of instances this season, have not we? We’re getting used to it, ”said Solskjaer after his side gained their eighth Premier League sport which they first surrendered.
“You do not really wish to be in these positions, 1-0 down.
“It was an untidy mistake in the midst of a field, we aren’t stopping the cross, we aren’t defending the cross, so we now have given ourselves work to do.
“I believe we have finished it so many instances this season that the team is just not panicking.
“We all know we now have to construct momentum, the ball has to move faster, we now have to move extra parallel.
“The 2 goals we scored have been good goals and we felt we deserved to win the sport within the end.”
When requested if the scrappy winner was Greenwood’s favourite goal to this point, former striker Solskjaer said: “Yeah, undoubtedly so happy for him.
“Happy with its total performance but superb. He was vivid, neat, clear on the ball, he hit the post and one which went over the bar, maybe skewed, within the second half.
“When he will get these goals, we all know he will add one other dimension to his sport. Very, very proud. ”
Greenwood’s position might be elevated within the coming weeks with Rashford leaping with a foot situation on Sunday and Anthony Martial might be dominated out for the remainder of the season with a knee injury.
Solskjaer revealed that Eric Bailly examined constructive for Covid-19 on international obligation and has not but returned to England, ruling him out in Thursday’s Europa League quarter-final against Granada.
However United’s puzzle gave little away when requested if David De Gea would get the nod for the primary leg after Dean Henderson was chosen against Brighton on Sunday.
“With Dean and David’s state of affairs, I do know it is one thing that can make headlines and fish and chip wrapping paper shortly,” said Solskjaer.
“However I’ve two great goalkeepers and now have to seek out video games that they each play – not the identical sport in fact.
“They each deserve to play greater than they do and I at all times should make a decision.”
In the meantime, Brighton boss Graham Potter was disappointed to return to the south coast empty handed.
“I believe you must take plenty of positives concerning the performance,” he said. “I assumed the primary half we have been superb, carried a menace, we had alternatives on the ball and defended well.
“She combined it up with excessive defense and low defense once we needed to do it as a result of Manchester United had some high quality and drove you back, however I do not assume they created an excessive amount of of a chance.
“Within the second half I assumed we had lost a number of choices to attack ourselves and be pushed back just a little greater than we’d have preferred.
“When the home team is 1-0 down and has acquired the standard they’ve, you expect that to a level however with out creating too many possibilities a few photographs from distance however nothing an excessive amount of.
“A big minute with the penalty kick with Danny that was solely given within the end, a few high quality seconds from United turned the sport.
“I did not assume there was a lot in it, a point is perhaps proper however, sure, that is life.”
Pushing on Harry Maguire’s second-half challenge on Welbeck which was verified by the video assistant referee, Potter said: “I used to be a bit stunned that he wasn’t put to life as a result of it felt like a punishment and once I watched it back,” n thinks it appears to be like like punishment.
“However as soon as it isn’t given, you may perceive why VAR does not rule it out.
“I believe if Mike Dean had given it, I do not assume VAR would have dominated it out. That is what it’s. ”
