The managers of Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur are under increased pressure to win Saturday's (October 30) clash when they square-off at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Nuno Espírito Santo and Ole Gunnar Solskjær have been making the headlines after their sides have failed to have an impact in the Premier League so far. United are currently placed seventh in the points table and Tottenham are just a rung above them at sixth. Both sides are coming off losses. United was handed by 5-0 drubbing by Liverpool, while Tottenham lost to Westham. 

This led to the weekend clash being dubbed 'El Sackico' as the general assumption was that the losing manager would be booted out. On his part, Solskjaer vowed that he would not walk away from the job and resign, insisting that he and United had "come too far" together after the defeat to Liverpool. In North London, there's no evidence that Nuno would be sacked by Tottenham boss Daniel Levy.

Will Tottenham Hotspur establish themselves as bonafide title contenders if they beat Manchester United?

However, the internet had a different opinion. Some felt a Tottenham loss should definitely see Nuno out. "We have the second-worst XG, with only 9.4 after 9 games... Only Norwich have created less... His tactics clearly don't work when implemented on big players, hasn't adapted his play style at all, even though us fans were promised attacking football. Nuno is well out of his depth.," a tweet read. This was seconded by another who wrote, "Sorry but Nuno us clueless and needs to go this week! I don’t care about OGS."

The Manchester United fans weren't optimistic either. "Don’t think ole will make it to Saturday guys," a fan opined. There was enough room for sarcasm as well. "What’s the odds on both getting fired after the match?" one of the fan remarked. Some felt Nuno and half the squad deserved to be kicked off the team. "Hopefully it’s Nuno an half the squad as well," a comment read.

Predictions were on as well with one fan saying, "0-0 draw. Both managers sacked but ole is more likely to be sacked with the money invested." One Manchester United fan felt it was time for Solskjaer to go. "It's win this Ole stays I don't want that I want spurs to give United at least 4 goals."
