Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Warned Defeat To Everton In 'Enormous' Game Could See Him Sacked

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Warned Defeat To Everton In 'Enormous' Game Could See Him Sacked

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could be facing the sack if Manchester United are beaten by Everton at the weekend.

That's the view of former Chelsea player Jason Cundy, who believes the fixture against Carlo Ancelotti's side is a must-win as pressure piles on Solskjaer.

Following the 1-0 defeat to Arsenal on Sunday, United are 15th in the table having failed to win a single home game in the Premier League this term.

United face Turkish outfit Istanbul Basaksehir on Wednesday and look to make it three wins out of three in the Champions League group stage.

But with their league form so poor, Cundy reckons a defeat on Merseyside defeat could bring about the end of Solskjaer's reign in the international break.

"The problem Ole's got now is that he's picked up one point from four at home," Cundy said on talkSPORT, as per the Express.

"The teams he's dropped points against are Spurs - three, two against Chelsea and another three at the weekend.

"Those teams are teams who will be looking to finish above United. The board will be looking at that quite closely.

"The fact that there's ground lost already... and there's plenty of time, of course there's plenty of time.

"The game against Everton is enormous. United's away record since January/February has been excellent, no defeats.

"If they lose, this international break I think he goes.

"This is massive for Ole, I think if they were to lose against [Everton] then that international break... that can be a graveyard for some managers."

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Told Anthony Martial Will Get Him The Sack

published at9 days ago

Mauricio Pochettino is the overwhelming favourite to replace Solskjaer if United decide to relieve the club legend of his duties.

The Argentine manager was in the Sky Sports Monday Night Football studio alongside Jamie Carragher to analyse Leicester City's 4-1 win away at Leeds United.

Having been out of work following his dismissal from Spurs nearly a year ago, the 48-year-old expressed his interest in returning to the game.

"I always feel ready to be involved in the game again," Pochettino said.

"I love football, it's my passion, it's my job.

"I am looking for work. I love the game. I'm working and doing things but it's not the same as being involved every single day and sharing with your players and staff. You miss that, that's the reality.

"It's not stressful when you are working. It's not stressful to go into the training ground, to prepare the team, to compete."

He said he would not be closing any doors when asked if his next job would be in the Premier League, but it wasright at the end of the broadcast that there was a subtle mention of United.

When discussion turned to Pochettino's touchline attire, he stated his choice of style would depend on the club he was at - prompting host Jones to joke "It might be a team in red" before quickly moving on.
