Manchester United news: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will match a losing streak last achieved in 1996 if his side are beaten by Everton

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is facing his first real test as Manchester United manager with his side in the middle of a poor run of form.

The Red Devils have lost five of their last seven games in all competitions after a sensational start under their new manager.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side is on a poor run of form

They won 14 of his first 17 games in charge and suffered just one defeat in that time.

The honeymoon period for Solskjaer seems to be well and truly over with them struggling for form in the Premier League and losing 4-0 on aggregate to Barcelona in the Champions League.

In their last league match at home, they scraped through 2-1 against West Ham United thanks to two Paul Pogba penalties.

Paul Pogba is one player who has come in for criticism

They have also lost their last two Premier League away matches, suffering losses to Arsenal and Wolves 2-0 and 2-1 respectively.

United have not lost three away games in a row in the league since 1996. On that occasion they lost 2-0 to Liverpool, 3-1 to Leeds and 4-1 to Tottenham.
