The 20-time Premier League champions are currently sitting at 9th place in the table, with just 7 points separating them from the relegation places.
Despite their brilliant comeback at the Bramall Lane on Sunday, Man United were forced to share the points due to a late equalizer by the newly promoted Sheffield United side.
The stalemate left the Red Devils well off the pace in the race for Champions League places, with the likes of Burnley, Wolves and even their Sunday’s hosts better placed than Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men to finish the season in the top four.
Why then, one might ask, the Man United board is not seriously considering the prospect of replacing the Norwegian with a new manager who could turn things around at Old Trafford?
The question gains even more significance when one looks at the Premier League table, where Tottenham, who have the same number of points after 13 games as United, have already sacked the manager who took them to the Champions League final last season.
