Manchester United are considering sacking Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

According to a report by Manchester United Evening news the club hierarchy is giving serious consideration to dismissing Solskjaer before United’s next game at Tottenham on Saturday. United have failed to respond for comment on the manager’s position.

United players are understood to have been kept inside Old Trafford for two hours after the final whistle of the 5-0 humiliation by Liverpool on Sunday.

United have suffered five defeats in their last nine games and are without a win in their last four Premier League matches. Sunday’s 5-0 thrashing by Liverpool was United’s worst ever home defeat to their biggest rivals.

It is understood United players are on a day off ahead of preparations for the Spurs fixture. United have a rare free midweek due to their elimination from the League Cup by West Ham last month.

United rewarded Solskjaer for presiding over ‘clear progress’ last season with a new three-year contract in July but their form has plummeted this term amid the expectation of a title challenge.

In the aftermath of the Liverpool debacle, Solskjaer maintained the squad was on course to succeed under his management.

“I do believe in myself, I do believe that I am getting close to what I want with the club. I think what we’ve done, what I’ve seen, the development, of course the results lately haven’t been good enough, it’s hands up and that brings doubt in anyone’s mind probably.
