Manchester United are considering sacking manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer following a humiliating 5-0 defeat to Liverpool.

Per Manchester Evening News, United's hierarchy are considering dismissing the 48-year-old before Saturday's clash with Tottenham Hotspur.

The club are yet to comment on Solskjaer's position following a disastrous performance at Old Trafford this past weekend.

Players are said to have been kept inside the ground for two hours after conceding four goals in the first half, the first time it has happened in club history.

United have lost five of their last nine games and are without a domestic victory in their last four.

Solskjaer was given a new contract in the summer after leading United to second place in the Premier League and a Europa League final.

Since then, the Red Devils have added Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and Cristiano Ronaldo to their squad in hopes of a title challenge.

Antonio Conte is said to be interested in taking the job after leaving Inter Milan in the summer.

Solskjaer remains defiant and believes he is the right man to turn it around.

He told Sky Sports: "I do believe in myself, I do believe that I am getting close to what I want with the club.

"It's mine [responsibly for the loss] - that's it," he added.

"The coaching staff are brilliant, and I choose the way we approach the game and today, we weren't clinical enough going forward. There were spaces for both teams, and when you give good players spaces, they score.

"You can look back at last season when we lost 6-1 to Spurs - this is miles worse.

"The opposition as well, that makes it miles worse for me as a Manchester lad, and we have to get over this as quick as we can and move on."
