Ole warned over United’s possible relegation trouble.

Former westham and Newcastle boss, Sam Allardyce has called Solskjaer to quickly resolve United’s problems before it gets late and lead them into the relegation zone.

Allardyce cited United’s side in 1974 that went down to the second tier against expectations.

Speaking on talkSPORT, he said: “It isn’t beyond the realms of possibility that they could catastrophically fall into more problems if confidence goes and injuries stay like they are.

“Players tend not to get as fit as quick as they would do when things are going well, that’s an absolute fact. There’s the disturbance of [Paul] Pogba wanting away and who will pop up next saying, “I see this going the wrong way, I want to leave?”

“Manchester United do not have enough goals and you can see it becoming a struggle. Hopefully, it’s not a struggle down the bottom end, but they’re certainly heading that way.”

Solskjaer’s men are in 12th place, two points away from the drop zone and face table toppers Liverpool after the international break. If

Solskjaer has admitted he failed in warning his player over Newcastle loss.


Manchester United boss Ole Gunner Solskjaer has finally admitted that he failed to warn his players over being victim of their opponents counter attacking football which finally cost them 3 points away from home.

Solskjaer was seen trying to get Scott McTominay and Fred’s attention in the second half of the Premier League clash, before issuing instructions to Andreas Pereira on the touchline.

Newcastle would eventually punish United on the counter-attack and the Norwegian confirmed his fears came true.

“We weren’t set up for the counter-attack.

“We conceded at least two goals – Everton away Wolves away – from our own corners, maybe two against Everton in one game.

“And that shouldn’t happen and with the pace we’ve got, we should lock that corner down.

“But it’s impossible to get the message across, because we gave the Newcastle fans something to cheer today, we gave them a game that they wanted, end-to-end at times.

“We gave them too many counter-attacks, lifted their crowd, you could see they were behind their team, behind [Steve] Brucey and it was impossible for me to put one or two players where they should have been.

“There are players that try to organise it but couldn’t and when that happens, six or seven back in our own box, but we couldn’t defend that ball.

“There were two attempts to tackle, from Dan [James] and Fred. We’re trying but lacking in that composure and that organiser there,” Solskjaer told reporters at St James Park
