Manchester United could end up in the Premier League’s bottom three this Sunday for the first time in 30 YEARS.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Red Devils have endured a nightmare season so far and pressure is building on the Norwegian.

Things are not set to get any easier for him as his side welcome runaway Premier League leaders Liverpool to Old Trafford in this weekend’s blockbuster clash.

And should results go against United, they could drop into the relegation zone when the final whistles goes at the Theatre of Dreams.

A number of score lines would have to happen for that to come true, however.

WHAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN FOR MAN UNITED TO BE IN THE DROP ZONE ON SUNDAY

  • Newcastle beat Chelsea
  • Aston Villa and Brighton draw
  • Everton beat West Ham
  • Southampton beat Wolves
  • United lose at home to Liverpool by two goals

First, struggling Everton would have to beat West Ham in Saturday’s early kick-off – a match you can listen to LIVE on talkSPORT as part of GameDay.

Then, Newcastle, who beat United before the international break, would have to claim a win at Chelsea in their 3pm clash at Stamford Bridge.

And a Southampton triumph at Wolves and draw between Aston Villa and Brighton would leave United staring into the abyss if they lose by two clear goals to Liverpool on Sunday.

Not since 1989, and with Sir Alex Ferguson facing his darkest period at Old Trafford just three years into his reign, have United been in such turmoil.
