Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer heads into this weekend’s match against Watford with clear “anger” in his dressing room to resolve, according to Martin Keown. The Red Devils have been in freefall since the middle of September.
Since being knocked out of the Carabao Cup by West Ham, United have picked up just four points from an available 18 in the league.
That’s included heavy defeats at the hands of Leicester and Liverpool while they’ve also been fortunate in the Champions League too.
At one stage last month, it looked as though Solskjaer would be given his notice but the club have decided to stick with him.
Heading into the international break following a disappoinitng 2-0 defeat against rivals Manchester City, more questions were asked on Solskjaer’s future.

But the Norwegian head coach keeps hold of his precaurious position heading into this weekend’s match against Watford.
There will be huge pressure on United to pick up a convincing win at Vicarage Road on Saturday.
Despite United’s poor form over the past few months, Solskjaer has opted against making too many changes to his starting line-up.
Solskjaer’s apparent luck of trust in his squad players to step up to the mark has Arsenal legend Keown fearing a mutiny in the dressing room.
And Keown believes changes will need to made quickly to help save Solskjaer’s job.
“When they’re winning games, I think it’s easier to look at the likes of [Alex] Telles, and [Donny] van de Beek, and [Juan] Mata, and [Phil] Jones, and to say, ‘Okay, we’re not picking you because we’re winning games,” he told talkSPORT.
“But now that dressing room must be interested in what’s happening on the inside because there will be a lot of anger, nobody is getting any joy out of this.
“The 11 he picks isn’t winning and the squad, as well, are not getting any reward.
“There now has to be some changes to the personnel. Or, ultimately, they change the manager.”
Despite United’s poor form of late, they still only sit five points adrift of Liverpool in the top four.
Jurgen Klopp’s side face a difficult test against Arsenal on Saturday evening, with injuries mounting up at Liverpool.
But United face a tough run of their own after playing Watford beginning with a crucial clash with Villarreal on Tuesday.
That is swiftly followed by back-to-back Premier League matches against Chelsea and Arsenal.
