Solskjaer a dead man walking at Man Utd

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a dead man walking at Manchester United, it has been claimed.

The Sun says United are set to sack Solskjaer if he loses to Norwich at the end of the month – unless he gets hammered by Liverpool first.

The under-fire Red Devils boss has been given a stay of execution during the international break.

But his fate will be decided once 12th-placed United have played Liverpool, Partizan Belgrade (in the Europa League) and the Canaries.

The club's hierarchy understands the need for Solskjaer to be given time and to stick to their “plan".

Defeat by Liverpool on October 20, although not ideal, is widely expected, and will not be the one that finishes Solskjaer off — as long as it's not a complete capitulation.

United are instead looking at the trip to Carrow Road on Sunday October 27 as the acid test.
