Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has called for media platforms to take action against users who posted racist abuse to Axel Tuanzebe and Anthony Martial after Wednesday’s shock 1-2 Premier League home defeat by Sheffield United.

“It’s just incredible we have these scenes still, this abuse in 2021,” Solskjaer told a news conference ahead of Saturday’s trip to Arsenal.

“We’ve been campaigning for a long time now with the Premier League and I think it’s working, but there are still some people that haven’t got it. They hide behind social media, be anonymous and it’s unacceptable and it’s disgusting.

“They’re not Man United fans when this happens. We’re all standing behind every single one of our players.”
