Manchester United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said that his team must get rid of the poor start in the matches, after they conceded an early goal to lose against their guest West Ham United and exit the League Cup from the third round on Wednesday.

Solskjaer made 11 changes to the squad that won 2-1 against West Ham in the league last Sunday, but his team fell with a Manuel Lanzini goal after 9 minutes.

"We played slowly in the first 10 minutes, whether we had possession or lost possession, and that is something that has to be resolved," Solskjaer told reporters.

"I'm not satisfied with the start at all... We can't put ourselves in these situations and expect to win like we did in the last year and a half. We have to start the matches better."

United plays Aston Villa in the Premier League on Saturday.

United have 13 points from 5 games, equal with Liverpool and Chelsea at the top of the competition.
