Manchester United have had a shaky start of the season and the recent performances have left their fans questioning whether manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær is the right man for the job. The Old Trafford outfits have not won a trophy since their Europa League glory in 2017 . The struggled to beat Atalanta in their recent Champions League fixture, leaving fans staring at another possible trophyless season.
OGS job has come under scrutiny in recent weeks after his side were eliminated from the Carabao Cup by West Ham, and failed to register a win against Leicester City, Aston Villa and Everton in the premier league.
However, latest developments indicate that there could be hope for the Red Devils in spite of all the poor form. This is after Italian tactician and ex-Juventus, Chelsea and Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte gave a crucial hint. The 52-year-old who has been linked to the Old Trafford job for months now had said nothing until recently, when he came clear that he was very much interested in replacing the Norwegian at United.

This comes ahead of the biggest clash this weekend between Man United and Liverpool at OT. Red Devils go into the Sunday fixture on level points with Arsenal, who have turned their form around in the most astonishing manner.
United are yet to register a win over Klopp's side since OGS took over as the head coach. With only four points separating the two sides, the Reds go into the encounter as the only unbeaten side in the Premier League and OGS will be looking at registering his first win against Klopp to keep his job intact.
The Norwegian was recently quoted saying they were trying to emulate Liverpool's success over the years and become more like them.
"It is going to take everything to get a result against one of the best teams in the world. And Liverpool are one of those. They have achieved so much in the last four years and we're trying to chase them, perhaps go past them. We did finish above them last season, but they had so many injury concerns and are now back to their best," he said.
He admitted that he hopes the 3-2 comeback against Atalanta could be the start of 'something big' before a daunting period that will see them face Liverpool, Tottenham, Atalanta and Manchester City in the next few weeks.
Bruno Fernandes, who has been a key figure in United's midfield, is likely to miss the Sunday encounter.
