Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be left red-faced, as opposed to a baby-faced assassin this afternoon after failing to deliver on a pre-match ‘guarantee’ for the Leeds encounter.
The meeting between the historic rivals ended a goalless draw, despite Solskjaer professing a ‘guarantee’ that this wouldn’t be the case during a pre-match interview with MUTV.
United looked lax for the most part in what turned out to be a relatively dull encounter, there were little signs of the ‘attack and attack’ that Solskjaer raved about before kick-off.
It marks yet another 0-0 result for the Red Devils this season, in a glaring sign of just how inconsistent the side are and seemingly far away from contending for major honours once again.

“It’s not going to be 0-0, I can guarantee it’s not going to be 0-0. It’s two teams who want to attack and attack as quickly as they can.”
It’s pretty unfortunate that a charismatic and hype-building statement from Solskjaer has come back to bite the Norwegian, perhaps the former Red Devils star turned boss will be more careful in the future.
