Under-fire Solskjaer awaits biggest matches of his career in the coming weeks

Ole Gunnar Solskjær-Manchester United

The Norwegian gaffer has been off to a fluctuating start in the Premier League this season.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is feeling the pressure for the first time after a disastrous start to this season, with the Red Devils currently sitting 14th in the Premier League table.

The defeats against Crystal Palace, Tottenham and Arsenal put the Norwegian’s managerial job at risk however a timely win against Everton might have saved his job for the time being.

The Champions League looked as the comfort zone for United – wins against PSG and Leipzig – but not until they suffered an upset against Turkish club Istanbul Basaksehir.

Solskjaer is running against the clock and all he has to do is win the maximum numbers of games in the coming weeks.

First up after the international break, United will face West Bromwich Albion before hosting Basaksehir in the Champions League matchday 4 next week.

Although United look like the favourites in the first two games, they will face Southampton, PSG and West Ham United in the successive games – all of whom can cause trouble to Solskjaer’s side.

Southampton have been quite successful in the Premier League this season, currently fourth in the table with five wins, a draw and two defeats.

Hammers have always caused problems for the top teams in the Premier League this season, drawing against Manchester City and Tottenham while picking emphatic wins Leicester City and Wolves.

United have reportedly contacted Mauricio Pochettino for the manager role but it all depends how Solskjaer would fare in the coming games.
