United have endured an indifferent start to their 2019/20 Premier League campaign, winning just one of their opening four matches of the season. 

The club maintains lofty ambitions to challenge for the league title, however, and midfielder Nemanja Matic believes it is Solskjaer's responsibility to help them achieve that. 

"The coach must opt for the team that will fight for the title and if he does not win, he bears the responsibility," Matic said, as reported by The Independent.

The 31-year-old's comments come after seemingly falling out of favour with Solskjaer, but he stressed that there are no issues between him and the Norwegian manager. 

"I have been in football for a long time, I have played almost all the games for all the clubs in the last 10 years. In order for me to play, one had to sit on the bench and accept that fact, and so do I now," the Serbia international added. 

"In the first two or three games, he picked the team without me. I work as hard as I can. We respect the decision, it's up to me to show him that he was wrong and to bring me back to where I belong.

"There is no problem. I told him I disagreed with him but that he had to decide the team."
