Premier League pundit Graeme Souness believes Manchester United’s players are to blame for the club’s poor form.

Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under immense pressure following some awful showings from his side.

They struggled in defeat against Arsenal last weekend and were humiliated in the Champions League by Istanbul Basaksehir.

Many believe Saturday’s clash with Everton is a must-win for Solskjaer ahead of the international break.
