Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer fears a heavy defeat to Liverpool at Old Trafford after the international game could get him sacked.
According to Daily Mail, Solskjaer is worried executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward will come under huge pressure to sack him if United lose heavily to Liverpool.
A 3-1 defeat to Liverpool last December at Anfield sealed Jose Mourinho’s fate as Manchester United boss and Liverpool might become responsible for the sack of another Manchester United boss.
Sunday’s 1-0 defeat to Newcastle saw Manchester United drop into the bottom half of the Premier League, just two points off the relegation zone after eight games.
Since his appointment as permanent boss, Solskjaer has 5 out of 21 games.
