Anthony Martial fired United into the lead before half-time, but Andros Townsend’s crucial second-half equaliser rescued a point for Everton on Saturday.
United have only won two of their last five matches across all competitions, with Solskjaer subjected to fierce criticism over the club’s consistency and results.
Solskjaer, who signed a new United deal in July, has the backing of Red Devils executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward to lead the club going forward.
However, the United manager now has five ‘unhappy’ players in his squad to answer to after their disappointing draw with Everton.
According to The Daily Telegraph, Cristiano Ronaldo and Paul Pogba are among the five United stars not happy with Solskjaer.
Both of the aforementioned United stars were spotted storming down the Old Trafford tunnel after Everton salvaged a draw.
The newspaper added that David de Gea was furious at full-time and shared his disappointment with his United teammates.
Jadon Sancho, who has struggled to make an impact at United, has found himself played out of position on the left wing under Solskjaer instead of his preferred right winger role.
Donny van de Beek has endured a disappointing spell and expressed his growing frustration during his outburst in United’s 2-1 win over Villarreal in the Champions League.
Solskjaer claimed that United “lacked that important cutting edge” to score a second against Everton and seal all three points at Old Trafford.
“We did have enough players behind the ball, we made a couple of bad decisions which cost us in those 10 seconds or whatever it fell,” he said.
“We were organised well enough behind the ball, but we should have dealt with the danger better.
“Today we dominated the game, we just couldn't get that second goal that you need in games like this. Everton, as we knew from last season, can score a goal from nowhere.
“It was about the counter-attack that they threw at us. We were well enough organised, we should have dealt with the situation a lot better.
“You can focus on dropping deeper and allowing them to have the ball, today we had 75 per cent possession or whatever it was, and we got hit on one break there that cost us.
“And we lacked that important cutting edge to get the second goal.”
United will resume their Premier League campaign on 16th October against Leicester City at the King Power.
