Solskjaer's position as Man United manager is under intense scrutiny following his side's crushing 5-0 home loss to rivals Liverpool last weekend.
At this early stage, The Red Devils are already eight points adrift of league leaders Chelsea and seven points behind Jurgen Klopp's team.
It doesn't get any easier for Solskjaer who is tasked with fixtures against Tottenham, Atalanta, Manchester City, Villarreal and Chelsea in the coming weeks.
But he may not even be in charge for some of those games, with widespread reports claiming he could be relieved of his duties at Old Trafford.
Well, if the club decide to sack the 48-year-old, then it will come at a big price - with The Sun saying they will need to pay him a whopping £7.5 million.
Former Chelsea and Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte has been linked with Man United, but it's expected that the Norwegian will be in charge of Saturday's Premier League match against Spurs.
That's despite suffering his 'darkest day' against Liverpool.
Speaking after the humiliating loss, he said: "It's not easy to say something apart from it's the darkest day I've had leading these players and we weren't good enough, individually and as a team. You can't give a team like Liverpool those chances, unfortunately we did.
"The whole performance wasn't good enough, that's for sure. We've created openings, they've had chances and they've been clinical. We didn't take our chances early on and the third goal is the one that decided the game.
"I've come too far. We've come too far as a group. We're too close to give up now. That's going to be a difficult one [lifting everyone]. I understand human nature and the players are going to be low.
"I'll just look into their eyes and the character of them. I know loads of characters are there. I know we're rock bottom and can't feel any worse than this so let's see where we take it.
"The only way I know how to approach life is to wake up tomorrow morning and look forward, of course evaluate what has gone on, and do my very, very best to come through difficult times."
