United host City tonight with the club in crisis after six defeats in eight games.
That dismal run has left Solskjaer under pressure just weeks after he signed as permanent boss.
In the dressing room at Goodison Park he was not holding back and he will not be prior to kick-off at Old Trafford tonight either.
