Ole Gunnar Solskjaer accepts Manchester United were fortunate to beat West Ham at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils failed to impress again and Solskjaer’s side had to rely on a couple of Paul Pogba penalties to deny the Hammers a deserved point.

United manager Solskjaer told BT Sport: “We got away with it, to put it that way, and got three points. They deserved to get their goals but we’re allowed to have a good goalkeeper.

“Maybe the fact we have a game on Tuesday night played in some players’ minds. It shouldn’t do, but anyway, we’ve got three points.

“I’ve stood here before – away from home – and I have been pleased with the performances, especially at Wolverhampton, and we’ve created chances and didn’t get what we deserved.

“The last two games now at home against Watford and West Ham, we’ve probably got more than what we deserved. It will probably level itself out over a season.”
