And if the Red Devils can move out of it without much damage then surely, Solskajer will be the favourite to become the next Man United manager.
While the Norwegian is yet to taste defeat at the club, his first loss can come next week itself given they take on PSG in the Champions League.
Everyone expects the caretaker boss to name a shuffled side this weekend against Fulham in the Premier League but Ander Herrara feels this will be the wrong thing to do.
Herrera told Sky Sports: “It will be a big mistake if we think further than Fulham. That’s a massive game for us because Chelsea are playing (Manchester) City.
“Let’s go game by game because if you lose one game you regret. Now for Fulham, then we will think about PSG.
“The best way to prepare for the PSG game is to try and win away at Fulham and that’s the way I think.”
Herrera also ruled out Manchester United remaining unbeaten for the whole of the season.
“That is impossible, the Premier League is so tough, City is a fantastic team and they lost away at Newcastle the other day,” Herrera added.
“In the Premier League, it’s impossible to go unbeaten from when the manager came in, to have 25 or 30 games unbeaten.”
24 hours after Man United play Fulham, Chelsea will take on Manchester City and these two sets of results can change the whole dimension of the table.
If United manage to win their game and then Chelsea goes onto lose against City then the Red Devils will go into next week in the fourth spot of the Premier League table – one point ahead of the Blues.
