Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reviews Manchester City defeat

Manchester United suffered another hugely damaging 2-0 home loss to Manchester City on Saturday.

An early own goal from Eric Bailly set City on their way before Bernardo Silva added the second on the stroke of half-time after David De Gea had made a string of fine saves.

But the away side eased the tempo in the second period to show superb game management and deny United any significant openings and maintain control throughout.

It follows the club’s 5-0 loss to Liverpool at Old Trafford just weeks ago, with restless fans now desperate to see some positive changes within the side after the international break.

However, as he prepares to take his team to Vicarage Road, Solskjaer appears to have a change in the pipeline.

United lined up with three centre-backs in each of their last three games against Tottenham Hotspur, Atalanta and Manchester City, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Luke Shaw flanking them on the right and left.

PA) However, they didn’t finish the trio of games with the same set-up, with an injury to Raphael Varane prompting a change of formation in Bergamo and a 2-0 half-time deficit on Saturday bringing about a similar switch as Jadon Sancho replaced Eric Bailly.

Solskjaer has faced a challenge when it comes to accommodating the wealth of attacking talent at his disposal, sacrificing a bit more firepower for bodies in defence in recent games, and his comments about the next match hint at a change.

United ’embarrassing’ Danny Murphy claims there is an “embarrassing” gulf in quality between Manchester United and their rivals.

Solskjaer was mocked by chants of “Ole’s at the wheel” from the away end during the Manchester derby, while Liverpool supporters have also taunted the Norwegian.

Murphy declares rival fans actively wanting Solskjaer to keep his job means United chiefs must make a change in the dugout.
