Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may not be entirely to blame for Man Utd's recent struggles

“He’s up against managers of two of the best teams we’ve seen but what intensifies the spotlight is (Thomas) Tuchel coming in. Chelsea were where United have been in the last two or three years but they brought in a manager who has taken them up to that Liverpool and City level really quickly.

It goes without saying that Solskjaer has had every chance to succeed at United, and maybe this recent patch of poor form will give him the chance to rebuild the team and form a stronger unit.

In two-and-a-half years, the 48-year-old has spent £441million on new signings. The squad is, as you’d hope, a lot better than the one he took over.

But no matter what players the manager has at his disposal, the fundamentals have remained the same – tactics rarely change, the squad selection often raises eyebrows and substitutions sometimes lack impact.
