Jan Bednarek was shown a red card in the 86th minute after the contact with Antony Martial and it led to a penalty from which Bruno Fernandes scored a goal, and Manchester United managed to shake the net of the helpless Alex McCarthy twice more until the end of the game.
Dean's decision to show a direct red card to Bednarek triggered an avalanche of comments because repeated recordings show that the start was not for such a penalty at all, and Anthony Martial and especially Ole Gunnar Solskjaer agree with that.
After the match, Bednarek revealed that Martial admitted to him that there was no foul, and Solskjaer added that the decision to show him a red card wasn't right. "That second decision should have been annulled," Solskjaer said.
His colleague Ralph Hassenhitl stated that "Bednarek did not kill Martial", and repeated recordings showed that there was almost no contact, just as Martial told Bednarek.
Solskjaer praised his players
While Hasenhutl blushed due to a new catastrophe, Solskjaer praised the "magical" release of his players ...
"We distributed the goals to several players." "When the game starts the way it started, it is very important to score a goal as soon as possible, because we have had many examples where teams with 10 players close and that lead to a draw," said the Norwegian and continued: "We waited a long time for the players to show their magic and that has happened now.
I let them enjoy. There were simply a few situations when we could enjoy like this. " Apart from the fact that this is the most convincing victory in the history of the Premier League, Solskjaer points out that such a triumph is important because of other things ...
"In situations like this, the team's self-confidence is built, when you score so many goals against a really good team. Self-confidence is just one of the things." " It is very important that you stay in the element, that you preserve that spark, that you have the ‘x-factor’.
Mason Greenwood played fantastically and his release was great, even though he didn't score. " United would not be left without a convincing triumph even if Dean changed his decision, and for Southampton, it is not a big difference whether the difference is seven or nine goals ...
Manchester United is still in the title game and will play at Old Trafford with Everton who is great this season
