“Ole’s at the wheel” was chanted at Old Trafford, but by the away supporters, as Liverpool thrashed Manchester United 5-0 on Sunday evening.

The Premier League clash between two of England’s biggest clubs saw the hosts suffer their heaviest ever defeat at home to their fierce rivals.

Fortunately for United, it seemed Liverpool took their foot off the gas after Mo Salah’s hat-trick or else the night could’ve ended on a far worse note, especially after Paul Pogba’s sending off in the 60th minute. The wheel of fortune, however, is unlikely to be in favour of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after this performance.

Jose Mourino was sacked in 2018 after losing 3-1 at the hands of the same rivals, and many fans want the same outcome for the Portuguese’ successor after tonight’s result.

 

Regardless, at this stage, the club have indicated the board are fully behind Solskjaer and his staff, who were recently rewarded with new contracts.

The Norwegian manager, in his post-match interview, also insisted he’s in no mood of jumping the ship, having come so far with this set of players.

“I have come too far, we have come too far as a group and we are too close to give up now,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports.
