Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is one defeat away from Manchester United’s worst run in 27 YEARS
Defeat for Manchester United on Saturday will equal their worst run of form in 27 years.
The Red Devils welcome West Ham United to Old Trafford at 5.30pm in a game you can hear live on talkSPORT.
And, although Solskjaer’s men are still in the hunt for Europe, they are in real danger of equalling a club record from 1992.
Should United lose to West Ham, it will be five defeats in six – something that hasn’t happened since 1992 when Sir Alex Ferguson was in charge.
The Hammers won the first fixture this season with Manuel Pellegrini’s men recording their first home victory of the season as they romped to three points courtesy of a 3-1 win in the sunshine.
Solskjaer could not have asked to get off to a better start after replacing Jose Mourinho, winning 12 games from his first 15 in temporary charge.

The Norwegian also equalled the Premier League win record for a new boss as well as achieving the largest points tally a top-flight manager had ever managed from their opening ten games.
But the ‘Baby-Faced Assassin’ will have to amend what is a woeful record as United have lost four of their last five games – to Arsenal, Wolves (twice) and most recently Barcelona.
Thankfully, West Ham have looked despondent in rent weeks. But, with no full-backs for the game, Soskjaer may be close equalling a rather unwanted record.
