Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Has Managed More Premier League Defeats Than Jurgen Klopp In 104 Fewer Matches

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has suffered more Premier League defeats than Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.

United's three-match winning streak came to an end when they were stunned by Bournemouth in a 1-0 defeat at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday.

And now Solskjaer, who succeeded Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford, has chalked up another defeat as a Premier League manager.

The 46-year-old Norwegian, who had a brief spell in charge of Cardiff City, has now lost 21 Premier League matches out of 50.

According to Duncan Alexander, Klopp has only managed 20 defeats in 154 matches.

He tweeted: "Solskjaer has now lost more PL games as a manager than Jurgen Klopp, despite taking charge of 104 fewer games.

"[Solskjaer] also gone level with Tim Sherwood, though, tbf, he has managed five more than him."

United had the early momentum in the clash with Bournemouth and showed signs that they could have taken the lead.

But Bournemouth fought back and eventually broke the deadlock thanks to a fine strike from former United trainee Joshua King before half-time.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who was one of Solskjaer's major summer signings, was blasted on social media for his part in Bournemouth's winner.

And United fans were furious with the defeat and #OleOut started to trend on Twitter after the 1-0 defeat.

Solskjaer admitted after the match that he was disappointed on his side missing out on an important three points.

"You are always very down when you lose and considering the form we were in we were hoping to take the three points," he told BBC Sport.

"It is a step back for us today, but we need to shake it off and go again.

"We could not capitalise on the good start and a moment of magic won the game for them, sometimes you just hold up your hands and say 'well done.'

"Mason Greenwood was unlucky when he hit the post, I saw him scoring those chances more than missing them, but he will come good.

"I thought Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial defended very well against them, but in games like this one it is so important to get the first goal and they [Bournemouth] did it."

United have only managed three wins out of their opening 11 league matches this season.
