Manchester United were thrashed at home by Liverpool and that defeat should spell the end for Solskjaer.

Liverpool were 2-0 up inside the first 13 minutes after some amateurish defending from Manchester United. Before the match, many thought Manchester United will take inspiration from their 3-2 win over Atalanta. 

The Red Devils took the wrong message from the midweek game. They found themselves two goals down after just 13 minutes against Liverpool, just like against Atalanta. However, there was no coming back for the toothless Mancunians today. 

“A scoreline for a generation, A scoreline that will echo forever in history”- Peter Drury.

Manchester United vs Liverpool looked like a mismatch today. The scoreline today reflects how far behind Manchester United truly are.


Before the match, Liverpool were the favorites. A 2-1 loss or a 1-0 loss today for Manchester United could have been predicted. However, it was the way that United collapsed from the start that was embarrassing. Also, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could not learn from the midweek match against Atalanta. 

It Should Be The End

If the Manchester United board truly want the club to compete for trophies, this should be the end of Solskjaer’s Manchester United era. Solskjaer is not the coach to make Manchester United to the next level. 


The body language of the Manchester United players told the whole story. Also, there is no structure to the way Manchester United play, no tinkering, no progress. The 5-0 drubbing today should mark the end of the road for Solskjaer at Manchester United, and it`s about time.
