Manchester United to sack Ole Gunnar Solskjaer if they lose to Norwich

Newcastle United v Manchester United - Premier League

After Manchester United’s terrible 1-0 loss to Newcastle on Sunday, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under an immense amount of pressure.

United are just two points above the relegation zone in the Premier League and have scored just seven times in their last 10 games.

In fact, since Solskjaer was permanently appointed manager in March, he’s won just five matches.

Could he be sacked during the international break ahead of United’s clash with Liverpool?

No, it seems.

Instead, according to The Sun, it’s the Norwich match that will be crucial to Solskjaer’s future.

They’re reporting that United will sack the Norwegian if he loses to Norwich at the end of the month - unless the club get thrashed by Liverpool first.

Defeat to Jurgen Klopp’s side is expected and is largely already being written off.

While they’re not placing too much importance on the Europa League tie against Partizan Belgrade that follows.

Instead, it’s the Norwich game at Carrow Road that will decide Solskjaer’s reign.

The Red Devils have already lost to West Ham, Crystal Palace and Newcastle this season so defeat to Norwich certainly isn’t unrealistic - especially when you consider they beat Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City earlier in the season.

Following their most recent defeat to Newcastle, Solskjaer admitted they now face a tough task to finish in the top-six this season and apologised to the fans.

"This game is very symptomatic of where we are. We don’t create enough chances to deserve to win a game of football," he said.

"I've got to say sorry to the fans because we're not winning games, but that's down to us starting a rebuild.

"Now we have given ourselves a tough task of making the top six, never mind the top four. We need results straight away to get momentum."
