Following Manchester Untied's defeat to arch-rivals Liverpool on Sunday, pressure has once again mounted on the shoulders of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who could now suffer a similar fate to his predecessor Jose Mourinho. Here's how the two bosses' stints at Old Trafford compare.
Record 20-time league champions United suffered a 2-0 defeat to Liverpool on Sunday, courtesy of goals from Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah, and now sit 30 points behind the table-topping Reds.
That result has heaped pressure on under-fire manager Solskjaer, with reports in England suggesting that the Norwegian's time at the club has been worse than that of Mourinho, who was unceremoniously sacked midway through his third year in Manchester.
Those reports hold true according to statistics provided by Transfermarkt, with the incumbent boss already boasting a worse win percentage and greater loss percentage at the club than his predecessor, across all competitions.
|Manager||Games Played||Games Won||Games Drawn||Games Lost||Win %||Lose %|
|Ole Gunnar Solskjaer||64||32||14||18||50||28.1|
Remarkably, Solskjaer's figures drop even further when one separates his spell as interim manager from the time he was appointed permanently, with his win percentage dropping to 42.2% and his defeats increasing to 33% after getting the job full-time.
The Norwegian boss' side is also scoring less frequently, netting an average of 1.61 goals per game to Mourinho's 1.74, while conceding more often, at 1.1 goals per game compared to 0.89 during the Portuguese tactician's Old Trafford reign.
