"We deserved to lose," Metro UK quoted Pogba saying.
"To be honest, we have been having this kind of games for a long time.
"We have not found the problem, conceding easy goals, stupid goals. We need to be more mature, play with more experience and arrogance in a good way. We need to find something, we need to change," he added.

On his part, Solskjaer agreed his side deserved no point against Leicester, lamenting his wards' lack of focus and maturity in the tie.

"We didn’t deserve points today," the United boss said.

Unlike Cavani, Fred has been a mainstay figure in United's team despite criticism from fans due to his performances.

"I have got many good players. Fred, Edinson Cavani, you miss them. I am not making excuses for the team I put out there, they are top footballers and we have not produced," Ole said.
