Manchester United have reportedly made the decision to stick by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ahead of Tottenham’s meeting with the Red Devils.

The Norwegian has come under severe pressure over recent weeks following a poor run of form that has seen them win just two out of their last seven matches in all competitions.

That dismal run came to a head on Saturday afternoon as they fell to a shocking 4-2 defeat at the hands of Leicester City at the King Power Stadium.

Red Devils supporters have appealed for the club to sack Solskjaer following the reverse, with some even making a comparison to Chelsea’s decision to jettison club icon Frank Lampard in January.

However, it appears that the Norwegian is set to remain in charge ahead of a tough run that sees United take on the likes of Atalanta, Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea, Villarreal, Arsenal and of course Tottenham.

According to The Athletic, Solskjaer will not be sacked by the club in the immediate future.

As per the reports, the former Cardiff City manager has ‘a lot of credit in the bank’ at board level and looks secure in his current role despite having not yet lifted a trophy during his spell at Old Trafford.

Solskjaer currently still has just under three years left to run on the new contract that he signed at Old Trafford earlier this summer, albeit with an option for a further year.

It all means that the 48-year-old is likely to be in the dugout for the Red Devils’ clash with Spurs in north London on October 30.

Of the six games he has overseen as a manager against Tottenham throughout his career, Solskjaer has won on three occasions, with his only loss in north London coming during his time at Cardiff.

However, he was at the helm during the Red Devils’ humiliating 6-1 defeat at the hands of Spurs at Old Trafford last season.
