Should Man United’s Ole Gunnar Solskjaer be sacked any time soon?

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been in the news lately for the obvious reason as his side has been struggling in the recent run of games last weekend.

They lost 4-2 to Leicester City despite taking the lead in the first place thanks to Mason Greenwood early strike against the Foxes.

But the pressure is relatively building on the United boss after the Red Devils succumbed to a 0-1 defeat against Aston Villa at home.

The Red Devils followed it up with a 1-1 draw against Everton at Old Trafford with many questioning his choice to rest players (particularly Ronaldo) prior to the Toffees fixture.

With Cristiano Ronaldo scoring a last gasp winner against Spanish campaigner Villarreal to secure a 2-1 home win for United, Solskjaer would be hoping he can inspire the group for this match once again.

While he hopes for further time and chance to make amend on the United's Coaching hot seat ahead in the season.
