Manchester United have faltered yet again and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s job may be headed in the same direction as Jose Mourinho’s was at this time last year.
United’s latest disappointment arrived against Aston Villa in the Premier League on Sunday when the away side held the Old Trafford outfit to a 2-2 draw.
Goals from Jack Grealish and Tyrone Mings set the scope for Villa while United had to rely on a Tom Heaton own-goal and a well-found shot from Victor Lindelof for their sole point.
The repercussions for the Norwegian may be manifesting themselves in a different manner already.
Twitter saw #OleOut trending as fans unleashed their wrath upon the sheer lethargy of the United side who truly didn’t react until well into the 55th minute by when it was too little too late.
Further, this draw has meant that the Red Devils have now failed to secure a victory in their past three games in all competitions.
The past two weeks have seen Tottenham and Arsenal sack their gaffers for results almost identical to the ones that Solskjaer has been mustering with his former employers.
To make matters worse, United next face Tottenham at Old Trafford with a resurgent Jose Mourinho hungry to deliver yet another win.
Things don’t bode well for Solskjaer going into that game, especially since United yet again find themselves only 6 points above the dreaded relegation zone and the script sits against his favor.
Mauricio Pochettino’s availability will further complicate matters as Ed Woodward and the higher ups at Old Trafford may begin to seriously reconsider their trust in the former Molde and Cardiff City gaffer.
To but it bluntly, Solskjaer has not had a true high ever since that historic win against PSG last campaign.
Will he succeed in sticking the season with United or will the winter bring fresh winds to the Theatre of Dreams?
