Ole Gunner Solskjaer continues the fight for survival as Manchester United manager against Liverpool

When the situation becomes critical, it is expected that a critical measure should be taken. This is the case of Manchester United manager Ole Gunner Solskjaer whose position as Manchester United coach has been a major talking point in recent weeks. With calls from some Manchester United supporters for the Norwegian to be sacked, he has to improve on his performance if he want to remain Manchester United manager.

Manchester United will be hosting their arch rival; Liverpool on Sunday the 24th October, a game that will form part of the team's manager assessment as he continues to fight for his job at the Theatres of Dream. The Liverpool match is coming when Ole is in great need of improvement on the team's run of form. The result of this fixture will either strengthen his grip on the managerial position or quicken his exit.

After losing 4:2 to Leicester City last week, Manchester United manager will be facing a greater task against high flying Liverpool managed by Klopp. Liverpool currently occupies the third position with 18 points from 8 matches, four points behind the league leader Chelsea who has played one game more than Liverpool.

Manchester United is going into the match on a three match winless run in the premier league after losing to Aston Villa and Leicester City while they managed a draw against Everton in their last 3 matches. Manchester United has also conceded 10 goals in 8 matches which should be a source of concern for the manager when playing a Liverpool team that has scored 22 goals in 8 premier league matches.

After Sunday's match, Manchester United will be facing Tottenham and Manchester City in the premier league. Although the result of the Match against Liverpool may not be enough to determine Ole's faith, the next two league matches and the second leg against Atalanta could be the ultimate decider. To remain Manchester United manager, Ole will hope that the results go in his favour.
