Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s position as Manchester United boss is coming under some serious pressure this week.
Sunday’s 2-2 draw with Aston Villa left them in ninth place in the Premier League and with league clashes against Tottenham and Manchester City coming up in the next five days, it could get spell the end of his 12-month reign.
With former Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino said to be waiting in the wings if United drop the guillotine, it’s the current Tottenham boss that could do the real damage tomorrow night.
Jose Mourinho will return to Old Trafford for the first time since his sacking as Red Devils boss on December 18 last year.
The Portuguese was sacked after just seven wins in 17 league matches and with Ole at the wheel, United will have to win their next three games in a row to even match that mediocrity.
Solskjaer, though, says he can’t wait to take on Jose and Spurs with United looking to end to snap a run of three games without a victory.
The sterkgevriet former striker says: “Of course, you want games coming thick and fast.
“The boys have had a week back home when the young ones went to Kazakhstan [for the Europa League], so we should be ready for a game on Wednesday and Saturday.”
United will have to improve big time after failing to see out the home game against Villa.
Having turned the game on its head through a Tom Heaton own goal and a Victor Lindelof strike, Tyrone Mings denied Solskjaer’s manne three points.
