Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has warned his under-performing players that he “will be successful” at Manchester United but some of them “won’t be part of that”.
United, who face Manchester City live on Sky Sports on Wednesday, produced a dismal display as they were thrashed by Everton on Sunday.
United’s 4-0 defeat to Everton leaves them sixth in the table, two points off the top four, with just four games left.
And Solskjaer issued an apology to the travelling fans who made the trip to Goodison Park.
“We have got to apologise to the fans,” he said. “That performance was not good enough for a Manchester United team – from me to the players,” he said.
”We know we let the fans and the club down. That performance is difficult to describe because it was so bad. They beat us on all the basics.
“We were beaten on all the ingredients you need, added to your talent, today. As I said last week as well, there is no place to hide on the pitch. It was 85 minutes before we had a shot on target. It’s not good enough. We know that.”
