The development comes at a time the Red Devils are scheduled for unfavourable fixtures in the coming days including matches against rivals Liverpool and Man City.

Reacting to his side's defeat to Leicester, Solskjaer appeared to take responsibility for the loss but was also quick to admit his wards were poor.

"When you look at the game after, the four goals we conceded were poor. The way we played we don’t deserve to continue that run," he said.

Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Paul Pogba was left unimpressed after United conceded four goals in their loss to Leicester City at the King Power Stadium.

The Red Devils failed to take just a point as the Foxes ran riot to win the Premier League fixture 4-2.

Paul Pogba was blunt in his post-match comments, with the Frenchman admitting that his side deserved to lose the game.

Goalkeeper David De Gea put up amazing saves in the encounter while big names such as Harry Maguire, Cristiano Ronaldo and Paul Pogba himself were performed poorly.

Following the loss, Manchester United drop to fifth position on the log and are five points behind league leaders Chelsea who defeated Brentford 1-0.
