​​Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had reportedly called for a crisis meeting with his assistant Mike Phelan in the aftermath of his team's insulting defeat against Everton in the Premier League.

An almost full-strength United side were thumped 4-0 by the Toffees at Goodison Park and Solskjaer was forced to apologise to the fans for his team's performance.

As reported by the ​Daily Mail, Solskjaer took to training at Carrington on Monday and he held a full squad meeting which lasted almost an hour.

The report goes on to state that after putting the players through a rigorous training session, Solskjaer and assistant boss Phelan held a meeting in which the club’s recruitment and transfer strategy was discussed.

Meanwhile, the same report from the above source goes on to state that United players turned on each other as raised voices were being heard from their dressing room after defeat at Goodison Park.

In his press conference before the clash against Manchester City in the derby, Solskjaer spoke about the defeat to Everton and said, "We had a meeting after the game and all the players were definitely, definitely disappointed and really, really hurt by that performance. The City game is the perfect one, ​there's no hiding place on the pitch and the fans will back you if you give that effort. There's always a crisis at Man United whenever you lose a game or two."
