Bailly started just once in the Premier League last season owing to a long-term injury and with just 25 top-flight appearances in the two seasons before that, his record does not stand up to scrutiny.
Potter also expressed his disappointment that VAR overturned a penalty awarded by Kavanagh after Paul Pogba appeared to have clumsily brought down Aaron Connolly. A point a piece, or so we thought.
"We've got three or four weeks to catch up and the more games we play, the more 90 minutes we get, we'll be sharper and sharper".
"We've got many defenders here and I put Eric (Bailly) on to bolster the defence, following the runs of Trossard and Maupay", Solskjaer said in his media conference.
It was a hard game, with the players still looking scratchy and United were lucky to come away with three points from the game.
Then, moments later when United went up the other end and won a corner, goalscorer Neal Maupay blatantly handled the ball in the area just as the referee blew his whistle for full-time. My focus is exclusively on the (Brighton) game, I can't be thinking any other way.
For those who missed the Mourinho story midweek, the Spurs boss posted photographs of himself standing underneath the bar at Shkendija's stadium in northern Macedonia, highlighting that they were five centimetres lower than the regulation measurements.
"I don't think we've ever scored after the final whistle, that's right", Solskjaer said. We were the team that lost the fewest games - apart from Liverpool - last season.
Manchester United may have to raise their game when they host Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford next in the league on Sunday. It's a sore one.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insisted a lack of sharpness was the reason behind Manchester United conceding goals as he ruled out adding a centre-back in the transfer window.
Indeed, Fernandes' penalty was the latest goal scored in a Premier League game for nearly a decade. When he is 100 per cent, we have seen him win the World Cup alongside N'Golo Kante. There couldn't have been much time left and, I don't know, the referees are responsible for the time, that's their job.
