Ole Gunnar Solskjaer lost his job shortly after the humiliating defeat suffered at the hands of newcomers Watford in the Premier League. Manchester United were convincingly beaten by the Hornets as they recorded a poor performance during the game played at Vicarage Road at the end of last month.

Manchester United lost 4-1 with ten men and that was the last straw that broke the camel’s back as regards Solskjaer. The Red Devils had skipper Harry Maguire sent off in the second half for two yellow cards and the game was 2-1 in favour of hosts Watford at that point after the home team raced into a two-goal lead at the half-time break through Josh King and IsmailaSarr. Dutch player Donny Van De Beek came off the bench to pull one goal back for Manchester United at the start of the second half before the red card to Maguire. The Hornets then scored two goals in added time through substitute Joao Pedro and the impressive Emmanuel Dennis to wrap up a memorable 4-1 win.

Since the exit of Solskjaer at Manchester United, they have not suffered any defeat in all competitions and they are up to sixth place on the Premier League log and within three points of fourth place.
