Premier League

The nightmare 10-match fixture list that could see Ole sacked

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under a lot of pressure following yet another poor performance this weekend.

Man United drew 1-1 against Everton at Old Trafford on Saturday, with Anthony Martial's opening goal cancelled out by Andros Townsend.

United are still a long way from contending for the Premier League and Champions League titles, as seen by the outcome and performance.

Despite the fact that the Red Devils splashed the cash on a slew of world-class players this summer, including Cristiano Ronaldo, Raphael Varane, and Jadon Sancho, who all joined in a blaze of publicity. The Manchester based outfit won only two of their past six matches in all competitions, losing three of them, and even those two wins came thanks to a pair of ill-deserved late-minute goals.

Large sections of the fan base and the media have called for Solskjaer's dismissal, although his job is not believed to be under any threat. However, things may alter towards the end of United's incredibly difficult run of matches.

Between October 16 and November 30, when club football returns after the international break, United have ten games that will put even the most formidable opponents to the test.

Manchester United's Next 10 games;

The sequence begins with a trip to Leicester City, followed by a Champions League match against Atalanta four days later.

The club's next two league matches are at home against Liverpool and away at Tottenham, before returning to Bergamo to face Atalanta.

Next up is the Manchester derby November 6 at Threatre of Dreams before another international break to finish the World Cup group qualifying matches in Europe.

The only ‘easy' game in this stretch is against Watford on November 20 before United plays three games in seven days against Villarreal (away), Chelsea (away), and Arsenal (home).

If United finish this run of games significantly behind the leaders in the Premier League and/or fail to qualify for the next round of the Champions League, Solskjaer's position will undoubtedly be endangered.

Especially with Antonio Conte, one of the best managers in the world, out of work and open to a United offer.
