Manchester United’s poor start to the new season just got worse as they suffered a 2-0 loss to West Ham United on Sunday. The Red Devils were poor throughout the game, as the home side got the lead via Andriy Yarmolenjo’s goal in the 44th minute.

Marcus Rashford’s injury in the second-half took out further steam from an already lackluster away side and things got worse when Aaron Cresswell succeeded in netting an impeccable free-kick goal to secure all three points for the Hammers.

Following the loss, fans were quick to turn on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who since his peak win against PSG last season, has now lost 10 games in 19 fixtures, of which only 4 have resulted in victories.

#OleOut was trending on Twitter following the dismal loss, indicating the mood of the fans towards the Norwegian gaffer.

His start to life at Old Trafford was a brilliant one wherein attacking football was the name of the game. However, it became evident that the gaffer struggled with killing games and adapting to the opponent’s style of play.

This has caused them woes more than once and the West Ham game was another indication of the same.




To his defense, Manchester United did miss a chunk of their talent like Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba. However, that doesn’t excuse the sort of lineup the former United legend posted and the kind of tactics he advocated.

In particular, the hesitancy to take risks and bring on attacking talent was criticized by a big chunk of the fans.

Reports prior to the start of this season had indicated that the board would trust Solskjaer with a full-season and at least two transfer windows regardless of how things go. It will be interesting to see how well that alleged promise holds up now.
