Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is expected to continue as Manchester United manager, despite the 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Liverpool.

The feeling within Old Trafford, is that while the result was disappointing for everyone, the immediate focus is on improving.

The Red Devils have picked up one point from their last four Premier League games.

United’s next two Premier League matches are against Tottenham and Manchester City and they also face Atalanta in the Champions League next week.

But despite their poor results and huge external speculation, there is no suggestion from inside the club that Solskjaer’s job is under threat at this point.

Sky in Italy is reporting that former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has been in contact with United about taking over should they decide to make a change.

However, Sky Sports News understands that there has been no contact between the parties.

Solskjaer called the 5-0 defeat to Liverpool – their heaviest home defeat in this fixture – his “darkest day” as United manager.
