Arsenal legend Tony Adams has slammed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, struggling to see the foundations and principles of the Manchester United boss.
Solskjaer is under pressure at Old Trafford again following a defeat at the hands of Arsenal in the Premier League.
The Norwegian was beaten by Mikel Arteta’s side with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scoring the only goal of the game from the penalty spot.
And Adams believes Arteta’s philosophy and style is coming through at the Gunners though struggles to see the same from Manchester United boss Solskjaer.
Adams told Stadium Astro: “Arteta, if you analyse his record, it’s maybe not as good as Emery in the first few games.
“But what we can see of Arsenal and of Arteta is that he’s got a system and knows what he’s doing.
“You can see what he’s trying to do, he’s trying to get all his players to work hard. You’ve got Aubameyang running back, every player giving 100 per cent.
“The fans react on that, they see the attitude of the players.
“I can’t see that with Ole, I can’t see what are his foundations, his principles.

“I know Man Utd principles and they’re not coming up to that class at the moment.”
United have struggled at home this season though Solskjaer couldn’t put an exact explanation on why they lost to Arsenal.
He said: “There are many reasons. Of course, but it might be a reason when you play well and you think you take your foot off the pedal.
“But that's not how it works because this was a big game and they're a very good team. You have to be absolutely spot-on with everything.

“With the highs of the PSG game, it was a little bit okay against Chelsea and we were very good against Leipzig.
