Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, manager of Manchester United believes that his team are not being penalized following comments made by Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool boss.

Klopp stated in January that Manchester United had more penalties over two years than I had over five and a quarter years.

Solskjaer stated that "there was a certain manager last season who was starting to worry about penalties."

"After that, it seems as if the decisions are more difficult"

Solskjaer felt that his team was denied "two stonewall penalties", in a 2-1 league victory against West Ham on Sunday. He also felt that his team should have been awarded a spot-kick in the Carabao Cup loss by the Hammers on Wednesday.

Klopp's comments were made after the 1-0 defeat against Southampton in which Klopp felt that his team should have been given a penalty.

Solskjaer said, "Surely I've noticed a huge, big difference since then."

"But we can just leave it up the refs and pray that they make the right decisions very soon."

United are currently level with Liverpool on 13 points after five top-flight matches. They will face Aston Villa at 12:30 BST on Saturday.
