Solskjaer to be sacked if Man Utd fail to beat Tottenham, says former Premier League midfielder

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under increasing pressure at Manchester United amid a poor run of results, which has seen his side pick up just one points from the last twelve available.

The poor run started with a defeat to Aston Villa at home, with talisman Bruno Fernandes missing a penalty in the closing exchanges. The drab loss, United’s first of the season, was followed by a draw with Everton and a defeat to Leicester.

Last weekend’s humiliating five-goal defeat to Liverpool has resulted in extensive scrutiny on Solskjaer, with many supporters now feeling he has reached his ceiling as Old Trafford boss.

He did, however, survive to live another day as he was reportedly given a three-match deadline to save his job. Fresh reports now claim that he must beat Tottenham on Saturday to avoid the sack.

That’s according to talkSPORT pundit Jamie O’Hara, who has piled the pressure on United’s Norwegian boss ahead of this weekend’s vital clash with fellow struggles Spurs.

“He has to win this game,” O’Hara said. “I look at the fixtures and they have Atalanta next week and then they’ve got Man City at Old Trafford.

“I look at this game and think it’s a must win because I can’t see them getting a result against Atalanta or Man City, so this one is the one that they’ve got the win.

“I look at Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and I know it’s a bit of a pile on with Manchester United, it is the talking point so far of the season so it hasn’t been good enough so far this season.”
