Manchester United Are 22 Points Behind Liverpool And Just 6 Points Above Relegation
Manchester United fans can't believe how horribly their season is going as they sit 22 points behind league leaders Liverpool.
United have looked abject this season and this afternoon's 2-2 draw with Aston Villa at Old Trafford has added to the misery.
They currently sit ninth in the Premier League and are eight points off the top four.Some United fans have had enough and think it's time for manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to go.
Mauricio Pochettino is currently out of work after leaving Tottenham Hotspur a few weeks ago and many United fans feel he is the man to take over.
In 9th. Level on points with Palace & Burnley. Below Arsenal who've just sacked their manager.
Love Ole but we're not improving, no shape, no consistent way of playing - apart from badly.
If he'd come now we should get Poch in before Wednesday & make it Mourinho v Poch. #mufc pic.twitter.com/490OpCA8zY

I hate to say it but I'm finally "Ole Out" as I don't care to watch this team anymore. I've never felt this way about a United team in 30 years. Get Poch in, use the Jan window to....do something. Boxing Day looms. MUFC #OleOut #POCHIN

Four wins in 14 games is a sackable offence. David Moyes, Louis Van Gaal and Mourinho were all sacked for less. Get POCH IN ♂️:red_circle: #MUFC pic.twitter.com/LnNV8WtVPi

#mufc squad is poor but it is not so bad as to be taking 4 points from 24 available in games against Wolves, Palace, Saints, West Ham, Newcastle, Bournemouth, Sheffield United and Villa- Adam Crafton (@AdamCrafton_) December 1, 2019
4 wins in the PL all season. We've seen Pochettino sacked after his efforts at Tottenham. Ole is a legend for his goal in 99 and more, but using that as an excuse to keep him is simply absurd. He's shown nothing in his managerial career that suggests he can turn this around.

United are only six points off the relegation zone and their next two games provide no easy task for Solskjaer.
They welcome a Spurs side to Old Trafford on Wednesday who are rejuvenated under new boss Jose Mourinho.
Mourinho will be keen to impress after being sacked by 'The Red Devils' last December.
United then travel to the Etihad to play Manchester City on Saturday evening in the Manchester Derby.
United's board won't act on a manager change until we are firmly in the relegation zone. 6 points from relegation, going to get scary after Spurs and City games and nothing will be done. #mufc

It's a stark contrast to the hope and optimism that United fans had following their 4-0 opening day victory against Chelsea in August.
Do you think Ole Gunnar Solskjaer faces the sack?
