Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Loses Nerve With Big-name Manchester United players at Leicester

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer loses nerve with big name Manchester United players at Leicester.

Mason Greenwood had opened the scoring with a stunning strike but Youri Tielemans produced one of his own before Caglar Soyuncu put Leicester ahead late in the game.

This is after Manchester United were soundly beaten in an absorbing game with Leicester City on another bad day for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.0⁰

Going into this weekend's set of fixtures, Leicester sit 13th in the Premier League - having won just two of their seven matches so far - while fourth-placed United dropped five points at home in their last two games (having lost to Aston Villa and drawn with Everton).

Marcus Rashford looked to have salvaged something but Jamie Vardy immediately restored the advantage before Patson Daka ensured the result in stoppage time.

The Reds already lost Raphael Varane for a few weeks after he was also part of the France squad that won the UEFA Nations League trophy, by beating Spain in the final.

The defeat leaves Ole Gunnar Solskjaer under further scrutiny as United's own winless run extends to three games as they continue to look less than the sum of their expensive parts.

Mqnchester United, who failed to win any of their three meetings with Leicester last season, were beaten 1-0 by Villa before being held to a 1-1 draw by Everton a week later, meaning they will be under a sense of pressure to get themselves back on track against Brendan Rodgers' side.

Midfield is difficult with Fred absent. Pogba has to start in a deeper role really, even though it hasn't really worked for him yet this season. Matic is often his foil but the Serbian might be caught out physically by Leicester's runners from midfield, so I would pick McTominay.
