Martial 'ignored Solskjaer's touchline instructions' against Newcastle

  Martial 'ignored Solskjaer's touchline instructions' against Newcastle According to the Manchester Evening News, Solskjaer was heard telling the out-of-form striker to run twice at Old Trafford after he came to a standstill. Having shouted 'some movement' at Martial during one passage of play, Solskjaer could only watch on as the Frenchman failed to take on board his instructions.

United felt hard done by in the first half at Stamford Bridge when the video assistant referee (VAR) brought to Attwell's attention a possible handball by Callum Hudson-Odoi in his own penalty area.

The incident occurred just before a tussle with Mason Greenwood, who subsequently also appeared to touch the ball with his arm.

Man United braced for 'good fight' against Milan, Solskjaer insists

  Man United braced for 'good fight' against Milan, Solskjaer insists After United sailed beyond Real Sociedad in the previous round, thanks to their 4-0 first leg triumph in Turin, Serie A title contenders Milan were pitted against them in another testing tie. And, ahead of the two historic clubs facing each other competitively for the first time since 2010, Solskjaer explained that he is relishing the clash and the chance to reunite with former United players. © Provided by Daily Mail Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insisted Manchester United are braced for a 'good fight' against AC Milan 'It feels like a Champions League game, which is good,' Solskjaer said.

Attwell was advised to review Hudson-Odoi's action on the pitchside monitor, yet no penalty was given despite replays appearing to show the Chelsea wing-back's hand in an unnatural position when coming into contact with the ball.

Shaw claimed in a post-match interview with Sky Sports that Attwell had told United captain Harry Maguire giving them a penalty would "cause a lot of talk after".

United later clarified that Shaw misheard Maguire's conversation with the official.

While Solskjaer refused to explicitly repeat Shaw's accusations, he was aware of what was said and made no attempt to shut them down, before also insisting it was "100 per cent" a penalty.

He then went on to accuse Chelsea of influencing referees via content published to their website ahead of the match, with Maguire's recent VAR brushes the focus of the article in question.

Yet despite the comments made by Shaw and Solskjaer, neither is set to face any disciplinary action, with the FA not considering them to be in breach of the rules and regulations.
