Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is "making a mistake" very often at Manchester United, according to former Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy.
Solskjaer is struggling to turn his side into a consistent side with consecutive wins over Newcastle United and Burnley followed with three games without a win.
Their last match saw them lose 3-1 at home to Manchester City, losing 3-0 in 38 minutes before Marcus Rashford was comforted in the second half.
And Murphy thinks that, though he "misses" many times, most coaches would struggle to compete at the top of the Premier League with Man Utd's current squad.
"It's hard to blame the manager because there are games where he did well," said Murphy talkSPORT.
“They are the only team this season to score Liverpool points and the way he organized them [in that game] worked. United were the best team until Liverpool changed in the second half. Liverpool had to change to adapt to Man United.
“It was very clever of Ole.
"But he is often wrong; there have been some very bad results and performances from Manchester United this season.
"Sometimes I think he's out of the question and they need to bring in someone with the ability and experience to manage Manchester United.
"But maybe that's his quality. I think any coach would have a hard time competing with Man City, Liverpool or any of the big clubs on that team.
"And you can't tell me that Phil Jones is better than Chris Smalling, not in a month on Sundays!"
