5 mistakes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made as Man Utd lose to Chelsea and crash out of FA Cup

Manchester United’s only chance of winning a trophy this season will come in the Europa League after they were knocked out of the FA Cup by Chelsea following a lacklustre performance.

Ole Gunna Solskjaer will inevitably pin the blame for Manchester United’s FA Cup exit on the fact that Chelsea had two extra days rest ahead of their semi-final, but there is no denying his team were deserved losers at Wembley.

David De Gea was arguably at fault for all three goals and the goalkeeper looks a shadow of the man who earned a record-breaking contract last year.

With Dean Henderson likely to return from his loan at Sheffield United next season, the Spaniard will face a real fight for his place.

United’s 18-game unbeaten run came to an end off the back of a performance in which they were toothless in attack and vulnerable in defence.

Here are five mistakes that Solskjaer made in a game which saw Chelsea run out 3-1 winners at an empty Wembley Stadium.
