Meanwhile, United went on to sack Van Gaal, before replacing him Jose Mourinho whose two-year spell at the Reds was put to a stop in December 2018.
Ironically, Mourinho’s final match as United boss was a 3-1 loss to Klopp’s Liverpool side.
And the German boss looked to have sealed the same fate for Solskjaer, after his side pummelled United 5-0 at Old Trafford.
However, Solskjaer looks to have been granted a stay of execution for now, as he is expected to be in the dugout for United’s visit to Tottenham Hotspur.
Unfortunately, it will not get any easier for the Norwegian boss, as United travel to Italy to face Atalanta in a pivotal match in the Champions League, before returning to Old Trafford to host arch-rivals Manchester City.
