Things continue to go from bad to worse for Manchester United after yet another home loss, their second consecutive one, and in as many games, it further compounds the problem for Ole Gunnar Solskjær.

It's the first time since 1989 under Sir Alex Ferguson that Manchester United lost as many games in a calendar year. Ole Gunnar Solskjær has now matched the record of the manager who played all his United career under him.

Manchester United were whipped 5-0 by Liverpool two weeks ago and Ole Gunnar Solskjær was given three matches to redeem himself. He beat Tottenham 3-0 and drew 2-2 against Atalanta to save himself but with the home loss against City, it could well be the time now to fire him.

Solskjær is in his fourth season at Manchester United, his third full season after replacing José Mourinho in 2018 but is yet to win a trophy with his best outing being the UEFA Europa League loss to Villarreal last season. He has also spent £450m on signings including Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Jadon Sancho.
