Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could be sacked if Manchester United do not turn around their season
The Red Devils have picked up just three points from their first three Premier League games so far. The team has looked jaded and appears to suffer from a lack of ideas.
It can be argued that Solskajer has been outcoached by all three of our opponents so far. Despite getting all three points at Brighton, the Seagulls were clearly the better side on the night.
The Norwegian oversaw his side struggle to cope with Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur in our last game.
This was United’s second home loss on the spin. We have now conceded nine goals in our first two games of the season at Old Trafford. An unacceptable statistic for a defence that cost a bomb to assemble.
A noticeable flaw in our performances so far have been an inability to adapt. United continue to play the same way they do even when presented with a challenge.
Waiting in the wings?
According to the report, former Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has been touted as a replacement if Solskjaer gets the sack.
While Solskjaer has a lot of goodwill at the club due to his stint as a player, it is being eroded away with every bad result.
Pochettino meanwhile is waiting for the right project and has already rejected a number of suitors. If things fail to improve, he could very well take the hot seat at Old Trafford.
United next face Newcastle United in the Premier League. Solskjaer had long been a player who thrived under adversity. He will hope that his players do the same when they face the Magpies.

While Solskjaer will have to take responsibility for the club’s lack of direction on the field. However, he has also been let down by Woodward in the transfer market.
While he is responsible for on-field results, Solskjaer must not be made the scapegoat for what has been a collective failure at multiple levels.
Even if the Norwegian is dismissed, unless the new manager is backed by the board, we could just be going around in circles again.
