Some supporters have predicted when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be sacked after Manchester United were handed a difficult start to the 2019-20 Premier League season.
The Norwegian’s side, who finished sixth last season, will host Chelsea on opening day before facing a tricky trip to Wolves, with Crystal Palace, Southampton and West Ham to play before Arsenal at home on September 28.
With a trip to Newcastle on October 5 then Liverpool at home on October 19, many are pessimistic at Solskjaer – who became permanent boss on a three-year deal in March – making it through October.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United were handed tricky start to the 2019-20 season
One fan identified the match at Norwich on October 26 as Solskjaer’s last after ‘a disastrous 2-0 defeat’.
Another has a little more faith and believes he will hold out until December, despite just three wins from his first 14 league games.
A third fan believes it will be the fixture against Liverpool that will be the 46-year-old’s undoing, claiming ‘Klopp is gonna sack Solskjaer’.
Manchester United suffered a disappointing end of the campaign to finish sixth in the table
Despite a strong start after taking over from Jose Mourinho as caretaker manager in December – winning eight consecutive games – results fell away badly when solskjaer was confirmed as the club’s permanent boss.
This has left many fans doubtful of breaking back into the top four this coming season.
Indeed, a supporter has even labelled the Leicester home game on September 13 as Solskjaer’s last.
