Former Premier League striker Gabriel Agbonlahor has predicted Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would still be axed despite our win over Tottenham.
The team gave the perfect response after our humiliation against Liverpool by winning 3-0 against Nuno Espirito Santos’ side on Saturday.
While Agbonlahor praised Solskjaer’s team selection, the former Villa captain feels it’s only a matter of time before the 48-year-old is given his marching orders.
“The players played for him today,” Agbonlahor told talkSPORT. “From the first second of the game, they showed fight. They were fighting for Solskjaer.
“This was the obvious formation to play; your defenders are struggling, if you’re struggling to keep clean sheets, what are you going to do?
“You’re going to go five at the back, it’s not rocket science. I said it midweek, play five at the back, stop the goals going in and you have goalscorers in your team.
“You could have played [Cristiano] Ronaldo, Cavani, [Mason] Greenwood or [Marcus] Rashford as your two strikers because they would have scored today.
“Rashford comes on scores, you’re playing against a bang average Spurs team. Basically, for me, this is just prolonging what is going to happen.
“Ole is going to leave Manchester United, but you’ve got to give him credit for getting the result today.”
