Roy Keane warned that Manchester United’s flops will cost Ole Gunnar Solskjaer his job after another damning Premier League defeat at Old Trafford on Sunday.
Solskjaer’s 100th game in charge ended with a third loss in four league games at home this season as United made their worst start since David Moyes’s doomed reign seven years ago.
Former United captain Keane tore into the players after a 1-0 defeat to Arsenal, and fears their failure could see his old teammate Solskjaer axed.

‘Ole will pay the ultimate price,’ Keane told Sky Sports last night. ‘Ole will lose his job working with this group of players as sure as night follows day.
‘We all like Ole, he’s a decent guy, but he will be under no illusion that the pressure now will be building the longer this goes on.
‘I never thought United would get anywhere near Liverpool or Manchester City, forget that, but at this rate they are in no race. They are just drifting.
‘We were kind of building this season up to be make or break for Ole. At this moment in time it’s not looking good for him.’
Keane criticised the attitude of the United players, who wore black armbands in memory of the late Nobby Stiles.
‘We keep saying have they have turned the corner, but this must be the longest corner ever,’ he added.
‘I’m just not convinced with these players. I don’t see enough characters in the squad.
‘I don’t see any leaders out there from the experienced players – I’m really worried for United.
