OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER is under strong pressure at Manchester United.
Zinedine Zidane, Brendan Rodgers, Mauricio Pochettino and Erik ten Hag are the top contenders to replace him and SunSport have explored how they face off.
Solskjaer was photographed in Carrington on Tuesday for the first time since he fled the house to escape the pressure wave from United.
Last week he left for a short holiday to his native Norway when the Premier League broke for the international window.
And he left England under extreme pressure after the terrible performance of the Red Devils in their last outing: a 2-0 defeat to Manchester City rivals crosstown.
Leicester boss Rodgers has been looking for homes in Cheshire while United consider his own option.
Despite having the third worst winning percentage of their 360 games in management (55.6), the Northern Irishman’s teams were the ones to score by far, 687.
He has an average of 1.9 goals per game and 1.07 conceded per game.

Zidane could also have a chance to add Premier League success to his brilliant resume, which would be good news for Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Frenchman managed the fewest matches of the four contenders (183) but has by far the best percentage of victories (67.8) thanks to his phenomenal stages at Real Madrid.
His goal rate per game is 2.27 while his goals against is 0.92.
French sources have also suggested that Pochettino of Paris Saint-Germain may be preparing to move the City of Love to the north-west of England.
He is the most experienced of his competitors with 436 games on his resume.
But the Argentine has the lowest win rate of 47 percent.
Ten Hag appears to be the least likely to enter this phase, with recent reports suggesting he is reluctant to leave Ajax.
But if he got to Old Trafford, he would take with him an impressive 65.5 percent win rate.
And an average of 2.42 goals per game and 1.02 against.
Solskjaer has been limping at Old Trafford despite a number of shocking results.
