Man United suffered their third home defeat in their last four games at Old Trafford against Arsenal on Sunday and that has raised talks of the sack of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

A wrong tackle by France international Paul Pogba against Hector Bellerin handed the visitors a penalty and it was well converted by Gabon international striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The Red Devils have had a perfect record in the Champions League this season but they have not been able to translate the same in the Premier League with just seven points in six games.

In his reaction to the defeat, Roy Keane warned manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that he risks being sacked if he fails to get his current squad running as they are now 15th on the league table.

The former Man United captain expressed worry over the state of the current Red Devils team while speaking on Sky Sports, stating that the team lack energy and enthusiasm to win the game against a more composed Arsenal side.

He, therefore, stressed that some of the players were poor and he is not convinced by the quality of players in the current Man United team because they lack leaders. “There’s a long way back for this club” he added.

“Sometimes, you say there’s no reason to panic but the results and performances suggest you should be panicking. I judge the players by their actions and I just don’t see it, I never looked at a manager expecting to motivate me, that comes from within” he stated

He, therefore, added that “Ole will lose his job working with these players, as night follows day – that’s what is going to happen”

However, there are reports that the Red Devils chiefs have already held talks with former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino with the possibility of giving him the job.
