Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is expected to remain as manager of Manchester United through the international break despite their 2-0 defeat to Manchester City.

Sources close to Solskjaer accept that he is vulnerable after a run of six defeats in 12 games but insist he has been told to prepare for their next match.

United prefers to keep Solskjaer as manager through at least the end of the season. United is currently sixth in the league table.
