Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hit out at his players' reaction to an embarrassing 4-0 defeat to Everton on Sunday and suggested that some of them will not be at the club next season.

The 4-0 Correct Score was matched at a huge price of [220.0] in-running, while the Any Other Home Win (Everton to win by scoring at lest four) was matched at [44.0].

"Manchester United are in a world where they need to compete with those teams to get the best players into the club".

"I certainly don't want Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to fall by the wayside because I love him to bits and the Manchester United fans love him to bits. That was not worthy of a Manchester United team", said Solskjaer.

Asked afterwards whether he believed his players cared enough to play for the club, Solskjaer, who said members of his squad need a "reality check" on Friday, said: "I don't know".

Up next is the small matter of the Manchester Derby, as Solskjær's side welcome Pep Guardiola and Manchester City to Old Trafford on Wednesday in the hope of derailing their Premier League title charge.

Gylfi Sigurdsson made it 2-0 with a low drive from over 25 yards out that United goalkeeper David de Gea was slow to react to.

Things could have got worse as Phil Jones needed to produce a fine challenge to cut out another break and Richarlison fired another effort at De Gea after a Diogo Dalot mistake.

Jarrell Miller refused drug test after KO victory in 2016
We have now received news from VADA that Jarrell Miller has now failed a second seperate test for a further substance. On Friday ESPN reported that Miller tested positive for two more banned substances in his third drug test.

And the Norwegian hinted that major changes are to come in the summer whether they reach the Champions League or not.

Everton, who had not beaten a ´big six´ rival in 25 attempts before last month, have now won consecutive home matches against Chelsea, Arsenal and United while keeping three clean sheets in the process.

The Red Devils had not lost five straight away games since 1981 and they ran 8.03 km less than Everton.

United started to look desperate as Anthony Martial theatrically fell to the ground in the penalty area after minimal contract.

In a sporting contest, you can not suggest that the situation facing Liverpool is unfair, but it is certainly unfortunate because it is hard to pinpoint a weakness in Klopp's team.

"They panicked and took a big decision". You ran more than anyone, every single week.

Michael Owen was also unimpressed with United's showing. Don't know how United are going to attract big stars this summer when all they have to look forward to is playing in the Europa League.

Ryan Young: United are finished. The players are a shambles; all of them trying to get new contracts they don't deserve.
