Breaking News ! MANCHESTER UNITED produced a 'brave' performance against Chelsea on Sunday, according to Jamie Carragher. The Red Devils have been criticised for failing to score in a sixth Premier League game in a row against a fellow member of the 'Big Six'. 3Ole Gunnar Solskjaer watched his side fail to score against a 'Big Six' team once againCredit: Times Newspapers Ltd 3Jamie Carragher was impressed with Man United on SundayCredit: Reuters But Carragher, 43, doesn't lay the blame on manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Instead, the pundit simply believes that United lack 'quality' upfront. He said on Sky Sports MNF: "I actually thought they were very brave, on the front foot, pressing man to man all over the pitch. "But in that final third they just didn't have that quality." Asked if that's the 'big issue', Carra responded: "For me yeah - I wouldn't describe Solskjaer as a defensive manager.
"I don't recognise him as that kind of manager - right now I actually think it's a quality issue.
"So when I talk about being on the front foot, it's easier being on the front foot without the ball.

"It's easy as a manager to organise that and say where you want to press and we've been critical of teams on this show where they drop deep, two banks of four and they can't get out.
"This, for me, is when the ball actually goes up to the front players - is there enough quality?
"You've said they're the top scorers in the Premier League but have they got that player to score in the decisive games, that player that's going to take them to the league title?
"And when I look at that, people talk about Manchester United, they need a right winger, they went for (Jadon) Sancho, they need a centre-forward more than anything."
Second placed Man United fell 12 points behind leaders Manchester City at the weekend, with the Europa League and FA Cup more realistic targets for Solskjaer's men now heading into the season's final stretch.
