Chelsea have taken a sly dig at Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer via the club’s Twitter account after the Red Devils boss’ comments in his post-match Sky Sports interview.
Speaking in wake of what was a frustrating afternoon for United, during which their hopes of catching rivals Man City and winning the Premier League title were reduced to essentially zero, Solskjaer vented his frustration at a “cheeky” comment written on the Chelsea website about Harry Maguire’s past crimes.
