OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER is odds-on favourite to be next Premier League manager to leave their position, according to Sky Bet.
The pressure is mounting on United chiefs to relieve Solskjaer of his duties after a series of terrible results.
Top-flight defeats to Aston Villa and Leicester were compounded by a 5-0 thrashing to arch-rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford.
It was United’s third-largest home defeat in Premier League history and leaves the club eight points behind Chelsea.
The Red Devils have given Solskjaer a lifeline with Sir Alex Ferguson visiting the training ground to offer support.
It’s thought the Norwegian now has three matches to save his job ahead of fixtures against Tottenham, Atalanta and Manchester City.
Solskjaer is now available at 2/5 to be axed with bookmakers Sky Bet.

But with pressure at an all-time high, the manager remains adamant that he’s the right man for the job.
He said: “We’ve come too far as a group and we’re too close to give up now.
“I do believe in myself, I do believe that I am getting close to what I want with the club, I think what we’ve done, what I’ve seen, the development, of course, the results lately haven’t been good enough.
“But I’ve got to keep strong and I do believe in what we’ve been doing, the coaching staff and the players.”
Norwich’s Daniel Farke is second in the betting at 7/2 after a 7-0 thrashing against Chelsea.
Dean Smith and Nuno Espirito Santo are priced at 12/1 following their defeats to Arsenal and West Ham over the weekend.
