Reacting to Solskjaer’s comments, Owen told Sky Sports ahead of Man United’s away Premier League clash with Crystal Palace on Wednesday night, “Defensively, energy, application, attitude, pressing. Spot on.

“With the ball, we weren’t good enough. Not sufficient high quality. We didn’t create the chances we hoped for.

“If we scored on that breakaway when it was two against one, that is the perfect away performance. Or if you happen to get the penalty.”

The result against Chelsea means Man United are within the second position on the Premier League table with 12 points behind leaders Manchester City.
