  • CAR BLIMEY

    Jamie Carragher believes Manchester United need a better manager as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer does not compare to the Premier League's elite.

    He said: “On Monday, I wasn't actually trying to be critical of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. I actually think he's done a really good job to this point.

    "But right at this point now to take on Klopp, Guardiola and Tuchel, Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea, they need a better manager.

    "I don't want to get involved in a slanging match, I know Ole said something back and rightly so, he should back his own corner but, this thing about asking for managers to be sacked, I'm not comfortable saying that when it's "sacked", someone should go.

    "But when we talk about Manchester United as a team, we're comfortable saying Fred's not good enough, McTominay's not good enough and they need a new midfield player, so I don't feel too bad in terms of saying United need a better manager.

    "Solskjaer is not a manager for United when you want to go to the next level. Now it's the big boys. And Solskjaer will never be Jurgen Klopp, Pep Guardiola or Thomas Tuchel."

  • SHOWDOWN TALKS

    Man Utd managing director Richard Arnold has cancelled all appointments to holds talks with co-owner Joel Glazer about Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's future, reports suggest.

    That is according to The Guardian, who report that Arnold has cleared his schedule on Monday for a meeting with Glazer regarding the under-fire manager's situation following Sunday's 5-0 thrashing to Liverpool.

    United's hierarchy are seriously considering the Norwegian head coach's future after taking one point from their past four Premier League games.

    But a potential decision would take place later on Monday as Glazer lives in Florida and is thus five hours behind the UK.

  • BREAKING

    Man Utd are considering SACKING Ole Gunnar Solskjaer before this weekend's game against Tottenham, according to reports.

    The under-fire Norwegian boss, 48, watched in horror as his side were ripped apart by Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday.

    And now, Manchester Evening News claim the club are considering axing Solskjaer.

    The ex-Cardiff chief could be given the boot BEFORE Saturday's game against Tottenham.

    Antonio Conte and Zinedine Zidane are already being linked with the United job.

  • SHAW THING

    Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw has slammed his and his side's performance during yesterday's 5-0 defeat to rivals Liverpool.

    He fumed: "Not good enough. I know of course this game is a team sport, a team game, but I think as individuals we need to be accountable of some of the performances today.

    "And that's why I'm here now. I'm not hiding in there (in the dressing room), not speaking.

    "I come out, I say wasn't good enough and I speak on behalf of myself, not the team. I'm accountable for my performance and it wasn't good enough.

    "Like I said, I'm not here to speak about the team. We know we can be better but for me also I need to be better than I was today.

    "That's why I come here now, not hide, speak to you, and tell it how it is."

  • JOG ON

    Gary Neville has blasted lazy Manchester United for failing to put in the hard yards during their humiliation by Liverpool.

    The Sky Sports pundit lashed out at the Red Devils’ lack of effort and gameplan as the visitors ran amok at Old Trafford.

    Neville said: “That Manchester United team are one of the lowest-running teams in the league, we see that in the stats.

    “And there's nothing worse than being told you are one of the lowest-running teams and that you are easy to play against.

    “But they are both. That is a poor reflection on the manager, the staff and the players.”

  • STRUGGLES

    Mason Greenwood's heat map from yesterday's game shows just how much the 20-year-old struggled to get into the game.

    The forward was replaced at half time by Paul Pogba with United already four goals down.

  • FERGIE'S WORDS

    Antonio Conte has been linked with the Manchester United job as pressure mounts on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

    And United legend Sir Alex Ferguson is a big fan of the Italian manager.

    Speaking about Conte back in 2017 to Sky Sports, Fergie said on the then Chelsea boss: "Fantastic, you see his energy on the pitch.

    "There's a true saying that the team mirrors the manager, and that's what they've done with him.

  • SOLSKJAER FUTURE

    Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano has revealed Manchester United will come to a decision regarding the future of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the coming days.

    Pressure is mounting on the Norwegian after yesterday's annihilation at the hands of Liverpool, and following four games without a win in the Premier League.

    Romano revealed, via Twitter: "No meeting in the night for Man Utd board. They’ll decide final position in the next hours/days - Solskjaer has always been protected so far

    "#MUFC Rumours about Antonio Conte ‘not considering’ Man Utd job were NOT true. But no official talks yet."

  • POOR COACHING

    Arsenal legend Ian Wright has hit out at Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, claiming the Red Devils are not being coached properly.

    He said on Match of the Day 2: "It wouldn't have mattered what midfield you put in there today because they're not for me looking like they're coached to press.

    "It doesn't matter if it's Pogba, Matic, Fred, or McTominay, if you're going to sit off people and not go and close them to win the ball to then get it to people with pace like Greenwood and Rashford...

    "If you're not coached to do that, then you will see mistakes from Maguire and Shaw, who we saw have an unbelievable Euros, because they're playing better and they're more coached, they know exactly what they need to be doing.

    "But they don't look like they know what they're doing [at Man Utd]."

  • PAUL GONE WRONG

    Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has accused Mason Greenwood of 'cheating' his team during their humiliating 5-0 defeat to Liverpool on Sunday.

    The 20-year-old stepped out of his side's shape to chase down Virgil van Dijk, a run which led to a catalogue of errors in their defensive structure.

    Just seconds later the ball was in the back of the net as Mo Salah fed Naby Keita to open the scoring.

    Speaking to Premier League Productions, Scholes said: "Tactically it was bad today, really bad.

    "But on the other side of that players have got to have some kind of common sense as well.

    "You think about Mason [Greenwood] in that first instance going to close him down, that was almost cheating.

    "He knew he wasn’t going to get the ball and he knew it looks like he was going to close him down but he knew he was just going to pass it and he can’t do anything.

    "It’s almost a cheating way of sprinting to him, they pass it and then he has a little walk back because he thought, ‘I’ve done my bit’."

  • DONNY DILEMMA

    Donny van de Beek was reportedly denied a loan move to Everton in the summer.

    But after a lack of first team chances this season, rumours regarding his future continue to swirl.

    According to Calciomercato, Juventus, Inter and AC Milan are all interested in a move for the 24-year-old Dutchman.

    But the 24-year-old reportedly favours a move to Real Madrid over a switch to Italy.

  • NEV-ER GONNA HAPPEN

    However Gary Neville has claimed the club are unlikely to hire Antonio Conte, seeing him more of a short-term 'hitman', rather than a long-term replacement.

    Neville said: "They won’t bring a hitman in.

    "They will stick with Ole and he has to win something this season. Any other club he’d be in trouble tonight.

    "Jose [Mourinho] was the best manager in the world and couldn’t do it. I wouldn’t bring Conte in to United. He’s not a fit for United.

    "I might be wrong but I don't think that he is. I think it would be wrong to sack Ole today.

    "I sacked a manager after six games last season, it was the wrong thing to do, I should’ve let things breathe."

  • CALLING CONTE

    Antonio Conte is 'open' to the prospect of taking the Man Utd job, according to the Manchester Evening News.

    However the Italian is said to have reservations regarding the structure of the club.

    He is said to want reassurances from the club in the direction that they are heading in, with uncertainty regarding the club hierarchy.

    MEN also claim that the 52-year-old would not want to be forced 'marketable' players, signed for reasons other than their ability on the pitch.

  • LACK OF TRUST

    Gary Neville has claimed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer 'doesn't trust' three of his midfielders after repeatedly selecting Fred and Scott McTominay from the start.

    He said on Sky Sports: "We know what Fred and McTominay give him, Ole trusts them.

    "It means that he doesn’t trust Paul Pogba, Van de Beek at this moment in time, or Matic who played at Leicester last week.

    "He still goes back to those two that have been the most reliable for him over the last two or three years.

    "The only thing I would say is obviously with all that talent on the bench that if you don’t win with these two in midfield then where do you go from there?"

  • DON YOUR OWN

    Donny van de Beek cut a lonely figure as he trained on his own after Manchester United's 5-0 humiliation at the hands of Liverpool.

    The Dutchman was an unused substitute for the eighth time in nine Premier League games this season.

    He was recorded completing sprints on the pitch with a fitness coach after the match.

    Van de Beek, 24, arrived back at Carrington for pre season in excellent shape - determined to make his time at Man United a success.

    But boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has neglected to pick him.
