Ole Gunnar Solskjaer expects to keep Manchester United job for Watford trip

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is confident that he will remain at the helm when the club face Watford after the international break, the Guardian reports.

The Red Devils have been in a dismal run of form in the Premier League.

They have picked up just four points from the previous six matches, losing four games in the process.

They were touted as title contenders after Cristiano Ronaldo’s arrival this summer.

While the Portuguese has excelled, the same can’t be said about Solskjaer in recent weeks.

The Red Devils have slumped down the table with their poor run of results.

The club are already five points adrift of the top four and nine behind leaders Chelsea.

They recently suffered a disappointing 2-0 Manchester derby defeat where they produced no attacking threat whatsoever.

Barring Ronaldo’s one shot on target, they were completely dominated.

The defensive showing was far from impressive once more. United should be grateful to David de Gea, who saved them from conceding more with a superb performance between the sticks.

Despite the dismal performance, Solskjaer may not be sacked.

The Norwegian is confident of remaining in the dugout when the club travel to the Hornets at Vicarage Road after the break.

The club’s stance on Solskjaer also appears unchanged as of now.

However, it won’t be a surprise if the Glazer family decide to sack Solskjaer in the coming days amid pressure from fans and a reported player revolt.

United have another tough-looking schedule after the international break.

They are expected to face Chelsea and Arsenal in the Premier League. In between those fixtures, they have a European trip to Villarreal.

The current squad could turn things around quickly, but question marks will be raised by some fans if Solskjaer continues in the dugout on the back of recent humiliating losses to Liverpool and Manchester City.

A couple of more defeats could put the club out of title contention.

It could end up being a tough battle to finish in the top four, with West Ham United and Arsenal flourishing in recent months.
