It isn't just the awful state of the pitch at Prenton Park that threatens to swamp Solskjaer and his under-performing stars tomorrow.
United allowed Romelu Lukaku to join Inter Milan for just over £70million and he has 18 goals in 26 games for the Serie A title challengers, while Solskjaer's forward line is now depleted thanks to the injury to Marcus Rashford.
Solskjaer contests his team's appearance in Prenton Park in the fourth round of the FA Cup against Tranmere and is aware that this season's win could make an important contribution to extending his tenure as a coach.
The Old Trafford stand charged the club owners - the Glazer family - and executive vice president Ed Woodward, asking for his departure from United.
"It's one of these jobs that... we know how football is nowadays, but all my conversations with the club have been positive".
It's not the first time that Pogba's desire to play for the Premier League club has come under scrutiny, but it appears that he will stay with the Red Devils until at least the summer.
But when questioned if he would expect the same from the French World Cup victor, he replied: "We all want this to go well and we've all got different ways of showing how much we care".
"It's understandable sometimes supporters air frustrations and the last week has been two disappointing results that have probably enhanced that feeling". We can't react to all the noise outside. You've just got to get on with it. You have got to be stronger mentally. I feel I am.
"I think Ole is still the man to stop the decline, but they need to do business in the transfer market and buy some players now".
Solskjaer pointed to Jurgen Klopp's success at Liverpool as proof of what can be achieved with time.
"Of course you can see other teams have done well".
'We have started a clear-out and now I am going to be answering these questions until it [the transfer window] closes. You get used to the ups and downs and as we've spoken about here you've got to get on with it when you do badly you know you've got a job to do.
