United's poor run of form continued on Wednesday when they succumbed to a 2-0 defeat to Premier League minnows Burnley, a result that ensured that the Red Devils have now lost more games under Solskjaer's permanent reign than they have won.

That follows after the phrase #OleOut trended on social media overnight, with hoards of United supporters voicing their frustrations at the under-fire manager.
