​'I think Solskjaer may be frustrated for different reasons and is now mixing up some issues. I think that Solskjaer has other things to worry about. AT LEAST IF I WAS HIM I WOULD,' read the ominous social media post from super agent Mino Raiola.


The last line, all in caps, hinting that ​Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has to worry about his job was part of Raiola's retort to Solskjaer's assertion that Paul Pogba was answerable to Manchester United and not to his agent.


The ludicrous concept of engaging in a war of words with a football agent aside, should Solskjaer really still have to worry about his job though?

​Last night's 2-0 win against ​Chelsea completed United's three peat against Frank Lampard's side this season. Couple that with 2 wins against ​​Manchester City, a win each against Tottenham and Leicester City and a draw against​ Liverpool, and the picture begins to paint itself.


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is pretty damn good at negotiating - no, winning - big games. In fact, the only two games against the traditional big six that he has lost this season are against Liverpool and Arsenal.


All this despite a long term ankle injury to star player Paul Pogba which has seen him feature in only 8 matches all season. United also lost a potent source of goals in Romelu Lukaku and say what you want about Alexis Sanchez, the man had all the ability in the world. Maybe it would have finally clicked for him at the club had he stayed.


But Solskjaer took the risk of underperforming without these player at the club, armed with defiance and a belief in the United DNA of promoting youth, and plunged into the 2019/20 season with Andreas Pereira, Mason Greenwood, Scott McTominay and Brandon Williams and co. as the main protagonists.


Marcus Rashford was asked to step up, which he did in a big way with 19 goals in 31 appearances before being sidelined himself due to a stress fracture in his back.

Anthony Martial has chipped in as well, in his own laissez-faire manner. But the success story of the season has been the emergence of Fred as one of the premier midfielders in the Premier League.


Discarded as a £50 million flop not too long ago, the Brazilian has stunned with his consistence and industry in the centre of midfield - breaking up play incessantly and laying the ball off to his more creative teammates.


Which is where Bruno Fernandes comes in. Despite only playing in two games so far, the Portuguese midfielder has already displayed glimpses of his technical ability and quality on the ball. Tellingly, he represents the fourth astute piece of business that Solskjaer has sanctioned in six months, alongside Aaron Wan Bissaka, new club captain Harry Maguire and Daniel James.


Yes, Manchester United aren't comfortably rocking up to a Champions League finish in the Premier League. As things stand, they are withing touching distance of fourth placed Chelsea and likely have to see off the challenge of Sheffield United, Wolves, Tottenham and Arsenal to try and seal a top four finish.


But the progress, in transfer dealings and the way the team sets up is plainly evident to see. Importantly, there is a definite direction in which the club is heading, although progress seems to be rather slow.


With only the good of the club at his heart - which is more than can be said of other managers that preceded him - perhaps Solskjaer should be afforded the time to see out his plan.


Discussion about his job security, for that reason, should be a non issue at this point.
