Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer appeared to apologise to fans after his side were humiliated by Everton.

United were beaten 4-0 at Goodison Park as the Red Devils slip further away from the Premier League top four.

Fans were quick to criticise Manchester United on social media, with supporters in Merseyside left stunned by the poor performance.

And Solskjaer responded by heading to the large travelling contingent at the full time whistle. He then reiterated his apology in his post-match interview.

“From the first whistle everything went wrong. They’re the only people with the badge on today who can hold their head high, because we can’t,” he said.

“Everton were better than us at all the basics.

“There are so many things that we need to do better to get a result. Talent has never been enough.

“We just didn’t perform. That was not worthy of a Manchester United team.

“We hold our hands up and apologise to everyone associated with the club.

“We have a perfect chance to make amends on Wednesday [against Manchester City].”

The Norwegian, who was appointed permanently last month, appeared to put his hands up apologetically with the fans responding by singing his name.

The result leaves United two points off of fourth-placed Arsenal, who lost 3-2 to Crystal Palace later on Sunday.

Solskjaer had mentioned prior to the match that some of his players needed a “reality check”.
