As Manchester United were humiliated by Watford, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was seen with “tears in his eyes.”

In Manchester United’s match against Watford, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was a lonely figure.

With Manchester United’s defeat to Watford, Arsenal legend Martin Keown thought he saw “tears” in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s eyes.

The Red Devils went into the international break on a low after their humiliating defeat to Manchester City.

Solskjaer would have benefited from a few weeks away from the spotlight, allowing him to focus on the details.

In his Friday press conference, the Norwegian head coach admitted that he had reverted to the “dark side” in training this week to shore up his defense.

They had the worst defensive record of any team in the top ten going into this weekend’s match against a struggling Watford side.

The Hornets had only won two of their previous ten league games and had recently struggled to score goals.

In the first half, however, any hopes of United keeping a clean sheet were quickly dashed.

Early on, David de Gea came to the rescue, saving Ismaila Sarr’s spot kick.

However, the hosts soon found an opening, with Sarr scoring just before halftime.

At halftime, United’s players trudged down the tunnel with their tails between their legs.

After coming on for Scott McTominay, Donny van de Beek pulled one back, but Harry Maguire’s second yellow effectively ended any hopes of a comeback.

Keown was on the sidelines and kept a close eye on Solskjaer’s antics on the touchline, noting how agitated the United manager appeared.

On BBC One, he said of Solskjaer, “Looking at him, he almost has tears in his eyes.”

“I’m not trying to be rude, but he has that look on his face that says, ‘When it rains, it pours.’

“He had a look on his face that made me wonder if this was going to end?”

United then surrendered in stoppage time, as Watford scored twice in a matter of minutes to claim a stunning 4-1 victory.
