"We dominated possession, we get the first goal and second half we know they'll come out like a house on fire," Solskjaer told Sky Sports.


"They probably got the goal they deserve. I thought we took control again and could have won it.


"First half was a mature performance. Second half was a bit sloppy. We are improving. We are a young team who will learn, we learned on the pitch today.


"We get a penalty that normally would get us another two points, sometimes the keeper makes a good save."


On Alexis Sanchez potentially moving to Serie A side Inter Milan, who have already signed Lukaku from United, he said : "Let's see what happens in the coming few weeks. At the moment he is our player."
