The Norwegian has increasingly come under pressure in recent weeks, with his side managing just one point from their last three league matches. That run leaves them sixth in the Premier League table, ahead of the visit of Liverpool to Old Trafford.
Even the Champions League win over Atalanta was not without its warning signs, with a poor United first-half performance leaving them 2-0 down at the break.

That has led to speculation as to how safe Solskjaer’s job is at the club but according to The Sun, United have made it clear that they still have faith in the 48-year-old.
It’s believed a number of agents have expressed interest in helping to find the club a replacement should they be needed, but they have been told there is no vacancy to fill.
Whether that is still the case in the coming weeks remains to be seen, particularly with a challenging fixture list ahead.
United host Liverpool on Sunday, before facing Tottenham away from home next weekend. Solskjaer’s men then travel to Italy to play Atalanta, before welcoming Manchester City to Old Trafford four days later.

After a big summer transfer window, in which Cristiano Ronaldo, Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho arrived, a serious title challenge was expected from United.
However, they are now eight points behind league leaders Chelsea, albeit with a game in hand, and have kept just one clean sheet in all competitions this season.
Solskjaer will be hoping his side can start brightly against Liverpool, but the United manager is always confident in his side’s ability to come from behind if required.
He said: ‘It’s something we have done plenty of times at the club.

‘It’s in our DNA, it’s never give in, Sir Alex’s documentary – that’s what our fans expect from us, to give everything you have, give your best all of the time and when you do that with the quality of the players you have here you can win and lose games, but come out of it having given everything and know that’s a team out there.
‘I saw a team in the first half as well [against Atalanta] that gave everything for each other, but we needed half-time to maybe push that belief a little bit more.
‘We kept on believing in what we’re doing. Hopefully, it’s the end of a bad period for us, a bad spell.
‘Teams always go through bad spells and good teams come together and hopefully this can be a start of something big.’
