Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has been given a three game ultimatum to turn things around in the club or he could lose his job. Their next three games are against Tottenham Hotspur, Atalanta and Manchester City respectively. The big question here is, can he survive the three game ultimatum?.
The Old Trafford club suffered a mauling in the hand of Jürgen Klopp's men yesterday in a Premier League encounter and many has since been calling for Manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, to be sacked. Over the last nine games now, United have been struggling, winning a handful of them, with their latest victory coming courtesy of a comeback win against Atalanta in the UEFA Champions League.
Manchester United and Liverpool, the country's two most successful teams, will meet at Old Trafford on the backs of two very different waves. The match will be played on Sunday 24th October 2021. The Red Devils have slipped to sixth place in the League table as a result of their dismal record, with Jurgen Klopp's side three point behind leaders Chelsea.
When Manchester United hosts Liverpool on Sunday, they will face a difficult test. Liverpool are in second place in the league standings with 18 points, while Manchester United are in sixth place with 14 points. United's form has dipped recently, and they've struggled in their games.
Following Manchester United 3-2 win over Atalanta on Wednesday night, the Red Devil's will look to secure a top four spot when they host a tough Liverpool side in English Premier League table on Sunday. However, Ole Gunnar is likely to be without some of his key players for the Sunday's games.
"Welcome to a super Sunday, it is Manchester United hosting Liverpool in the biggest match in Europe". That was one of the opening lines a commentator used in kicking off commentary in Sunday's match between Manchester United and Liverpool. A match that failed to produce the usual exciting and tensed atmosphere.
MUN vs LIV: Solskjaer Should Use The Same Set Of Players That Played Towards The End Of The Atalanta Game
In the last 30 minutes of the Atalanta game, we saw a rejuvenated Manchester United side completing a comeback after going two goals down. The comeback was accomplished because of the choice of player Olè Solskjaer used towards the end of the game. For the match against Liverpool today, I think the Manchester United manager should use the same set of players.
Manchester United and Liverpool face each other in one of the most anticipated fixtures in English football as both teams boast of being the clubs with the highest and second-highest number of League titles respectively. Both teams come into the game with the desire to add more points to their existing tallies after their recent victories in the UEFA Champions League.
In football matches, only the players are permitted to play but the coach of the team is always responsible for the technical and tactical aspects of the game. When the team fails to win, the manager is also said to have failed even though he is not allowed to play.
Despite a poor October record, Manchester United sent a strong message on Matchday 3 with a deserving victory over Atalanta, and the Red Devil's will be looking to reclaim a spot in the top four of the English Premier League table when they face Liverpool on Sunday.
Manchester United would be facing another tough test in Liverpool on Sunday after their hard-fought 3-2 comeback win against Atalanta in Champions League matchday 3 on Wednesday. Heading into the match, Liverpool would be very confident of getting all three points as they are presently the most in-form team in the league while Manchester United's results have been patchy in recent times.
Manchester United return to Premier League football action this weekend, after an excellent display against Serie A side Atalanta in match day 3 of the UEFA Champions League. United have played 12 matches this season winning 6 , drawing 2 and lost 4 in all competitions. The Red Devils lost to Leicester City 4-2 in their last Premier League clash at King Power Staduim last time out, but they could bounce back to winning ways after their win against Atalanta.
Why Man Utd Fans Must Not Change Their Stance About Solskjaer's Sacking Despite The Win Over Atalanta
Since their latest Champions league victory against Atalanta, many fans have been praising the players who were outstanding as well as the manager for his tactical decisions in the comeback win. It should be recalled that just prior to their last game, the Red Devils had suffered a heavy 4-2 defeat to Leicester City in the Premier league and that had once again agitated the fans to demand for Solskjaer's dismissal.
Encouraged by their midweek comeback win against Atalanta, Manchester United will face yet another ordeal on Sunday when they host fierce rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford. Ole Gunnar Solskjaers' team uncovered some serious shortcomings in the first half on Wednesday and Jürgen Klopp will undoubtedly want to take advantage of these weaknesses on Sunday.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s time as Manchester United manager appears to be hanging in the balance after his side’s sorry surrender against Liverpool on Sunday. The Norwegian was hoping that the comeback victory over Atalanta in the Champions League would mark a turning point in what has been an indifferent start to the new campaign.
Solskjaer: “Talks between Paul Pogba and the club I can’t comment. But of course if Paul is happy here; that’s great because then we get the best football from Paul. That is every single player here, we need everyone to be giving everything they have.
Manchester United’s English Premier League match against Liverpool could be a title decider as both teams are desperately in need of a win to boast their top 4 and title chase this season (Liverpool are current third while Manchester United are sixth on Premier League log table).
Liverpool would be feeling pretty confident going into this fixture, their performances in their away fixtures so far this season have seen them score three (3) or more away goals in a single game for 8 consecutive away games in all competitions, there is no denying their attacking threats.
Should Solskjaer be giving more time after post from Man United website suggest he is going no where
A post on the official Manchester United website on Monday suggests that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s job is safe for now. Just before 11am, an article headlined “Ole sets out United’s three-match battle plan” was shared on Man United’s social media accounts in reference to the club’s daunting trio of upcoming fixtures – a trip to Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, a Champions League visit to Atalanta next Tuesday and a home derby against Manchester City on November 6th.
On Sunday, October 24, Manchester United will take on Liverpool at Old Trafford. The rivalry between both teams should make this match an exciting one to watch. Manchester United have been in a sloppy form of late. However, The Red Devils will be hoping that their impressive comeback win over Atalanta on Wednesday will give them the morale boost needed to take on an in-form Liverpool.
