Manchester United have had a dreadful start to this season’s campaign.

Having had three games under their belt, Manchester United have been misfortunate enough to find themselves behind schedule. This is not their fault though, as they missed their opening fixture due to how far they progressed in the Europa League campaign last season and therefore required a break.

But even when they got back into action, it wasn’t what they had hoped for. They were beat quite embarrassingly by Crystal Palace, who won by a score line of 3-1. They also were hammered by Tottenham Hotspur recently 6-1, Jose Mourinho coming back to haunt the Red Devils.

It was an ironic turn of events because Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was brought into replace the Portuguese manager but it was Mourinho that reminded the club they’re far from perfect. I’m sure the result would have given the fans plenty to think about, but even more importantly, the board too.

More from Manchester United

According to a new report from the Sunday Mirror, Ed Woodward won’t hesitate to sack Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, unless the Red Devils see a positive U-turn in their form.

From a fan’s perspective, this would be good to see. Of course, nobody likes to see a manager being fired, especially when this ends in a vicious cycle which makes it hard to settle. However, when there are cracks in a squad like there certainly are at United, it’s important to address the managerial situation as the problems often can stem from here.

There are, of course, options to replace Solskjaer, which is perhaps why United are considering the options if the situation occurs. The Sunday Mirror also reported that Mauricio Pochettino, formerly of Tottenham Hotspur, is being considered by United, however, they will face competition from Manchester rivals City.
