Sam Allardyce has said that the current Manchester United side is the “weakest” he has seen since he has been working in football.

United currently sit 11th in the Premier League table going into Monday night’s crunch clash with Arsenal at Old Trafford, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side looking to bounce back from a disappointing 2-0 defeat to West Ham in their last league game.

Speaking on talkSPORT, Allardyce – who began his first role as manager in 1991 – admitted that he has seen many United sides stronger than the one competing this term.

“Yes, it would be the weakest [side],” the 64-year-old said. “There are lots of doubts around Old Trafford at the moment. The Rochdale game has made everyone sit on the edge of their seats asking, ‘what is going on with Manchester United?’

“Playing at Old Trafford and only winning on penalties with a side that was more than capable of scoring four or five against Rochdale… that sends a shock wave through Old Trafford.


“The last home game in the league was a 1-0 victory over Leicester with a penalty, and that wasn’t comfortable; for big parts of that game Leicester were the better team in terms of controlling possession and getting forward.

“I’m very concerned for Ole and Manchester United that things may not get better if they are not very careful.”

Elsewhere, United midfielder Scott McTominay has outlined one key reason why the club must keep faith in Solskjaer going forward.
