Man Utd fans demand Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sacking after Everton Premier League draw
Manchester United fans have taken to social media to demand the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after today’s 1-1 draw with Everton at Goodison Park. The Red Devils had Bruno Fernandes to thank for digging them out of a hole, with the Portugal international earning a point.
Manchester United went into the game against Everton aiming to capitalise on Chelsea’s 2-2 draw with Bournemouth on Saturday.
But the Red Devils, while they earned a point, weren’t able to take all three from the showdown at Goodison Park.
United weren’t at their best throughout the game, enjoying a good first half but faltering in the second.
And fans have taken to Twitter to demand the sacking of Solskjaer, despite United being just three points behind Chelsea in the race to finish fourth.
“Sack him,” one fan said, replying to images of Solskjaer and his players on Merseyside that were tweeted by United.
“Ole out,” said a second supporter.

“Ole made this game tough for us. What did greenwood do through out the game ? Why not start martial and ighalo upfront ? Why keep playing lindelof ahead of bailly? Ole is just making things difficult for himself,” a third fan wrote.
“Ole out poch in,” said another supporter, who clearly wants Mauricio Pochettino to take over.
A fifth said: “They need to get rid of Ole.”
And a sixth opined: “Tacticalless clueless Ole!”
While United fans may be disgruntled with the result, Solskjaer expressed a belief that a draw was the right result.

“It was a game of two halves – first half, we were excellent,” the Norwegian said.
“But a very strange start, you shouldn’t be 1-0 down like that.
“After that we played fantastic football and we should have been leading at half time, we could have won it at the end. We defended all second half and pleased with a point.
“One point each, is what both teams deserve we had the first half and they had the second.”
Everton thought they’d won it late on but Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s strike was ruled out for offside.
And the Toffees hitman believes his goal should have stood.
“In the moment, I wasn’t sure,” he said.
“Seeing it back I think Gylfi on the floor doesn’t obstruct the line of sight.
“Fair enough, he’s in an offside position but then it takes a deflection, the keeper is going the other way and he’s got his legs out of the way.
“The keeper is never going to save the ball so I’m not sure what it is.
“For me, as a striker, I think it’s a goal but VAR says otherwise and cancels out the emotion at the end. What can you do?”
