Manchester United slammed: ‘There is something wrong’ with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team, says Ian Holloway

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has ‘a huge job’ ahead of him this summer to clear his squad of players who aren’t pulling their weight.

That’s according to Ian Holloway – co-host on Monday’s Jim White show – who believes ‘there is something wrong’ in the current Red Devils side.

United maintained their bid for a Premier League top-four finish by beating West Ham 2-1 this weekend, but it was not a comfortable victory.

Even Solskjaer admitted his men got lucky, with Hammers star Felipe Anderson having an early goal wrongly chalked off for offside, before Paul Pogba scored twice from the spot after two controversial penalty decisions.

There’s no doubt United have been an improved team since Solskjaer succeeded Jose Mourinho as manager last December, but their performance levels have suffered a startling drop in recent weeks.

The Red Devils have lost four of their last six games in all competitions, including a 1-0 defeat at home to Barcelona which has left their Champions League hopes hanging by a thread.
