United return to action on Monday at home to an Arsenal side whose head coach, Unai Emery, has faced his own share of criticism.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that the club will look to replace both Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku in the January transfer window.

Manchester United plan to relaunch a bid for Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic when the January window opens, The Athletic has learned.

The 6ft 3in centre-forward would provide a different option to the likes of Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood, who have scored a combined five goals in the Premier League this term.

United is now placed at the 11th position in the Premier League standings and they will next face Arsenal later today. It is little mistakes that we have to start cutting out because they cost you games, and points in this respect.

And many believe this has primarily been due to the fact that the club failed to bring in a new striker during the summer.

Solskjaer was keen to sign a striker in the summer but said he was right to let Lukaku leave even though a replacement could not be found. "You've got Leicester, there are loads of teams wanting those positions and that's where we'll be in and around".

Solskjaer acknowledged their efforts to find the back of the net is a cause for concern, as he said: "We need to score more goals, definitely".

"That's the long-term thinking that we have to show".

"I can't think, "I need a player", because it's my reputation on the line - no, it's the club".

"However, former United goalkeeper Schmeichel was not happy with Pogba's display as the Red Devils made their worst start to a Premier League season following just nine points from seven games". He's a world-class player, you expect someone like him to take charge of the game, to direct the young players, there were seven academy players today, to be the guy they can look towards and find guidance when it's hard.
