Manchester United's 2-0 loss to Manchester City at Old Trafford yesterday exposed a lot of things at Manchester United, one of it is that there is a dressing room unrest at the club after captain, Harry Maguire and manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer disagree.

Harry Maguire in his post match conference said that the team lacked belief against their City rivals, outlining the current state of the United dressing but manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was not only surprised by the comment, he disagrees with it.

"Have they said they lack belief? It is a big thing, we are human beings. It is my job now to work on going into the next game with the right mentality, a winner’s mentality, and a more positive mentality. Of course, when you play, you might lose belief during the game when you can’t get to the ball. These transitions that we are so good at, we just couldn’t get enough of them." Solskjær said.

The timing of the loss coming before the international break can give Solskjaer time to put things right or give the Manchester United board time to sack Solskjær and find a replacement before the resuming of the league after the international break.
