But Solskjaer, whose chances of a sacking were reduced after the loss to Leicester, is not worried about being fired despite being under pressure.

Speaking ahead of United’s Champions League match against Atalanta on Wednesday, he said: “There is pressure all the time, of course there is pressure on me.

“We’ve been under pressure before, but come through. I’m just waiting for a response and, as you said, I’m in talks with the club all the time, so it’s an open and honest discussion.

“After every game, we look at the game, we analyze the game, we look at what we did well and what we didn’t. You move quickly to the next opponent.

“It’s Atalanta, it’s a different opposition, a different competition, and we focus on what we need to be good at in this game.

“And as I said there’s a lot of stuff that hasn’t been good lately and we’ve put some things right and hopefully tomorrow we can see the result with good performance.”

United and Solskjaer are now headed for a crucial fixture which includes Atalanta in Prem and two European games against Liverpool, Tottenham and Manchester City, all of which come before the next international break.

But the Norwegian believes his side can come out of this difficult phase as he has improved a lot since he took office.

“We have made progress over the years,” he said.

“Sixth when I was here for half a season then third, second, you can see progress, improvement and development and this season we still want to improve.

He said, ‘Yes, we have signed such players from whom the expectations have increased. Other teams have signed players and improvised as well so we are in the same boat as all the top teams.”

Moving up in their game against Atalanta on Wednesday, they have three points from their first two matches in the Champions League.
