Man United face 'mutiny' if Solskjaer isn't named permanent boss

The Belgium global has admitted to bulking up for last summer's World Cup and Solskjaer was asked whether the striker needed to shed a little more given the way the United boss wants to play. But Neville believes a win at Old Trafford over United's Merseyside rivals should seal the post for Solskjaer.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side come into the game after a 0-0 home draw with Liverpool which saw three of their players go off injured in the first half.

With the Red Devils already without Anthony Martial and Nemanja Matic through injuries at the weekend it'll be interesting to see how they line up in two games in the next week.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed there has been no let-up in Manchester United's injury crisis ahead of Wednesday's trip to Crystal Palace.

"That was a big part of my career - as long as you are a footballer and you play in the Premier League, make the most of it because suddenly you get these injuries and you are done".

The sheer number of injuries opens up the chance for young talent to be brought in, with highly-rated Tahith Chong, Angel Gomes and James Garner all travelling to Selhurst Park.

Solskjaer said: "He'll definitely be taking people on if he comes on". There are going to be so many games that matter in the end, because I don't think there'll be many points between fourth, fifth and sixth places. If it was a cup tie they'd be accused of playing a weakened team.

In the first half there were four injuries; three for Manchester United and one for Liverpool.

"So, maybe Southampton, but we're not going to risk another one too early".

"Play well when he gets a chance, keep on training as he does, keep working", Solskjaer said when asked what the Brazil worldwide needs to do. I want the smell that we can win. "It feels OK. I dealt with it and we'll see what the results are". He's still got a lot of players to get rid of and he has to bring new blood in.

He said, ( via The Guardian ) "It's a chance for them to play to their potential. Actually, from my point of view, it is a very positive pressure, but I don't have to play - I only sit here and say dumb things, so that's easy", said the German.
