However, Solskjaer's impact at the club where he won so much as a player has been so great that it would represent both a surprise and a risk to player and supporter happiness were they to appoint anyone else.
Performances like this in recent seasons have been lacking against the big teams, and it shows the marked improvement the team have made under Unai Emery this season, despite some fans trying to say to the contrary. "I think he can do more in each match like today".
But Solskjaer has led United to 14 wins from 18 games in all competitions - and the quarter-finals of the Champions League - and his impressive performance in the role has sparked talk that he will be handed an extended contract.
"We are disappointed with the result but looking at the performance, you can not say it was a game we deserved to lose".
After United's FA Cup tie with Wolves at the weekend, their next domestic match takes place on 30 March, by which time the club hope to have Solskjaer installed as permanent boss. We played well but they were always risky on the counter-attack and today with five at the back we were more compact. We created more chances today than in the cup when we played them.
The Manchester United number one seemed to be completely bamboozled by a speculative looking effort from Granit Xhaka, moving to the left before helplessly watching the ball sail into the right side of his goal. "We don't play against the other top-six teams, so I think we can beat the others".

Trump has also said that Cohen, who pleaded guilty to charges of illegal campaign contributions, is a liar who can not be trusted. He said Trump was aware that his company also submitted phony valuations to insurance companies to reduce premiums.
"In terms of what you can control we should not be too disappointed".
We are, however, unbeaten in five in the league with only Tottenham taking points off us in the current run.
Manchester United are refusing to meet David de Gea's new contract demands.
But Solskjaer dismissed Xhaka's strike as "one of those things", adding: "I don't class it as a mistake. We are two points behind fourth and 3 points behind third which is a good position to be in".
