Premier League table since Solskjaer was named Man Utd boss shows them trailing Wolves and 55pts behind rivals Liverpool

MANCHESTER UNITED suffered a miserable 1-0 defeat to Arsenal on manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's 100th game in charge.

And a Premier League table showing how the Red Devils compare to their rivals since the Norwegian became permanent manager is damning for fans.

Old Trafford legend Roy Keane has already claimed that United's current crop will lead to his former teammates axing as boss.

Solskjaer was handed the reigns following his stunning success as interim manager but his record since he was made Jose Mourinho’s permanent successor has proven less than ideal.

In the 52 league games following his appointment in March 2019, the 47-year-old has overseen just 22 wins – half of Liverpool's 44.

The Red Devils also sit seventh and a whopping 55 points behind their Merseyside rivals.

Their 81 point haul has incredibly been bettered by Wolves despite United finishing third last season.

Even Tottenham, who have overseen Mauricio Pochettino's sacking and Mourinho's arrival during that time, are above Solskjaer’s side.

Remarkably, the ex-Cardiff boss has only won one more Prem game as permanent manager than Ralph Hasenhuttl at Southampton in the same period.

And far from closing the gap on Liverpool, United are only three wins ahead of Crystal Palace who are closer to Aston Villa in 17th than they are to Manchester City in second.

A small consolation for the club is that they are three points ahead of Arsenal down in eighth.

That is in stark contrast to the 2020/21 table where the Gunners are just four behind leaders Liverpool following their 1-0 win over United.

The Red Devils meanwhile are sitting 15th having lost three of their opening six games ahead of a trip to Everton.
