The Red Devils of course marked their return to action on the back of the international break earlier today.

After slipping a full twelve points off the Premier League summit owing to Chelsea’s downing of Leicester City, Solskjaer guided his troops to Vicarage Road, in the knowledge that nothing but a victory would do.

Upon the final whistle sounding on Saturday, however, United came up short, in frankly embarrassing fashion.

A rampant Watford outfit ultimately went on to put four past their heavyweight opponents, en route to an eventual 4-1 final scoreline.

And the news will no doubt be met with widespread jubilation across the Manchester United fanbase.

As per the likes of The Times and Fabrizio Romano, those in a position of power on the red half of Manchester have decided that a change in the dugout is required at the club, with Solskjaer, in turn, set to be imminently dismissed:
