Manchester United ‘s defeat to Watford was a game to forget in a hurry.

United lost by 4-1 in the end, a total humiliation as the team made it 21 goals conceded in 12 games.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer appears to be at the end of his time at the club too, reports The MEN.

There is no coming back from results like this, on top of combined 0-7 home beatings by Liverpool and Manchester City.

Solskjaer did pick out two positives from the display, however, praising his half-time substitutes.

The Norwegian told the club’s official website he was pleased by Donny van de Beek and Anthony Martial.

Solskjaer said: “Both of them, Anto [Martial] and Donny [van de Beek] played really well. That’s the irony of it. In the second half, we played some fantastic stuff, created four or five big chances.”

Too little too late

Van de Beek was particularly impressive, scoring just four minutes into the second half.

The Dutchman created another four chances, and while Martial was not anywhere near as bright, he did offer a spark when he did get on the ball.

Wasteful finishing from United denied us the equalising goal, before Harry Maguire’s red card brought Watford back into the game.

Martial has only two Premier League starts this season and Van de Beek does not even have one to his name.

Watching him against Watford you have to wonder why, because he really was the best player in a Red Devils shirt at Vicarage Road.

Solskjaer may just have realised what he has with the Dutchman, and it will be too little too late for him.
