Man Utd should sack Solskjaer and get Bielsa in, claims ex-Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino

TONY CASCARINO thinks Manchester United should replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa.

United fell to a 3-1 defeat at home to Crystal Palace last night, hours after Leeds had beaten Fulham 4-3 in the Premier League's Saturday lunchtime kickoff.

Ex-Chelsea striker Cascarino believes the Red Devils need to take more risks in their play after registering just five shots on target against the Eagles, and reckons Bielsa could be the answer.

Cascarino told Talksport: "I think Solskjaer got a lot wrong yesterday because he should have made changes a lot earlier.

“There was no urgency.

“I was watching Leeds in the earlier game, and then watching Man United at 5:30pm, and I was thinking, maybe United do need something different.

“Not players, but maybe they need Bielsa.

“I’m looking at Man United and thinking they do the exact opposite of what Leeds do – they don’t take risks.

“When Ole gets it right – and he has got it right in a good few games – they are offensive and attacking and dangerous from many parts of the team.

“But yesterday they were laboured, sloppy and never had anything which represents Manchester United.”

Defeat to Palace was just the third time United have lost in their opening home game of a Premier League season, after Everton in the 1992-93 season and Swansea in 2014-15.

A debut goal for new Man United signing Donny van de Beek was a mere consolation as Solskjaer's side were downed by goals from Andros Townsend and Wilfried Zaha.

United are next in action on Tuesday night when they visit Luton Town in the EFL Cup.
