Six Manchester United players are currently not happy with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer over the Norwegian’s refusal to rotate his team, according to ESPN. The players include: Anthony Martial, Jesse Lingard, Dean Henderson, Eric Bailly, Diogo Dalot, Juan Mata and Alex Telles.

Old Trafford erupted into song when Donny van de Beek was asked to warm up for a possible substitution in United 2-0 defeat to Manchester City, which is a sign of how rarely he has been used.

Chelsea star told to leave club Immediately

Kevin Phillips has told Chelsea starlet, Billy Gilmour to leave Norwich City where he is currently on loan and move to Leeds United immediately. Philips wants the player to cut short his loan spell at Norwich in favour of a January loan move to Leeds.

He was sent out on loan to Norwich in the summer as he sought some much-needed top flight game time. However, the move has not yielded any positive results so far, with the Scotland international only making four appearances in Norwich’s opening 11 Premier League matches. Norwich are currently rooted to the bottom of the table on just five points and Ph...

Ronaldo, other Man Utd players ‘bemused’ by Solskjaer’s decision on Lingard

Manchester United players, including Cristiano Ronaldo, are reportedly ‘bemused’ about some of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s decisions, particularly his treatment of attacking midfielder, Jesse Lingard.

The 28-year-old did not feature in Man United’s last two matches against Manchester City and Atalanta. Meanwhile, a former Manchester United player, Paul Ince, recently criticised Solskjaer over his decisions on Lingard, Donny Van de Be...
