But while United's are in serious trouble, the Norwegian manager still believes that he is the right man for the job.

"It is not easy to say something apart from it is the darkest day I have had leading these players,"

the manager told

Sky Sports

after the final whistle.

"We were not good enough individually and as a team, [we] can't give a team like Liverpool those chances but unfortunately we did.

"[The responsibility] is mine, that is it. The coaching staff are very, very good, brilliant. I choose the way we approach the game, we were not clinical enough and gave too much spaces and when you give good players space they score.

United were thrashed 6-1 at home to


in front of an empty Old Trafford last season.

However, Solskjaer said this defeat was even more damaging because of the rivalry between the clubs.

"I know these boys are capable of it. You can look at last season, we lose to Spurs 6-1. This is worse, miles worse. This is miles worse for me as a Manchester lad. I've just got to say we have to get over this as quickly as we can."

Asked if he is still the right man to take the club forward, Solskjaer responded:

"I have come too far, we have come too far as a group. We are too close to give up now. It is going to be a difficult one.

"The players will be low but there's loads of characters there. We know we are rock bottom, we can't feel any worse than this. Let's see where we take it."
