The feeling within the club is that while the result was bitterly disappointing and painful for everyone, the immediate focus is on improving after picking up one point from their last four Premier League games.
Solskjaer oversaw training on Tuesday, with the team not in action again until Saturday, having already exited the Carabao Cup in a surprise defeat against West Ham last month. Sir Alex Ferguson was in attendance at Carrington, but it is understood that the former United boss was not there to speak to Solskjaer or the squad.
The majority – if not all – of the United squad like Solskjaer as a man, and believe he has done some great things at the club, but there are a small number with reservations.
All the players are desperate for Solskjaer to succeed given his legendary status at the club, but some are doubting if he can deliver that success.
Meanwhile, Sky in Italy is reporting that former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has been in contact with United about taking over, should they decide to make a change.
However, Sky Sports News understands that there has been no contact between the parties.
United are one of the few jobs Conte would be interested in if the managerial role were ever to become available. The Italian only takes roles at clubs that are set up to match his ambitions, and that would be the case at United.
