Manchester United’s last two performances show that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s time is up

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer-Manchester United

Manchester United dropped two points at home to Everton in the Premier League earlier today and the Red Devils continue to disappoint despite an impressive transfer window earlier on in the summer.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was backed heavily by the club hierarchy and he managed to sign top-class players like Cristiano Ronaldo, Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho.

The Red Devils have picked up just one win in their last four home matches and it is simply unacceptable for a side that is expected to challenge for the title.

Solskjaer has been harping about his ‘process’ and the rebuild for the best part of his tenure at Old Trafford but the Norwegian has nothing to show for.

Manchester United have probably improved in terms of style since the days of Jose Mourinho but they’re still just as flimsy and they continue to flatter to deceive.

The Red Devils were dominated at home by an Everton side that was without Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison.

The Toffees were allowed ten shots from inside the box and they could have easily nicked a win on another day.

Important goals from the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo in recent weeks have masked the deficiencies of the Manchester United side but the last two performances highlight that Solskjaer is not fit to lead a club of their stature.

Manchester United picked up a late win against Villarreal and Solskjaer’s late substitutions were praised. In reality, the Norwegian was quite generic in his approach and he decided to throw all his attacking options on the pitch when his side were struggling against the Spanish outfit.

The club and the fans have been extremely patient with Solskjaer since his arrival but this was the season where they were expected to take the next step and challenge the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool.

With several top-class players at their disposal, Manchester United still seem a level below their title rivals.

The club’s unwavering faith in their former player is commendable and they clearly trust his process but there has to be a time when a club like Manchester United will have to be realistic and look for better options in the market to lead a side that is supremely talented.
