Fans from several Premier League clubs, including Liverpool, Manchester City and Leeds United, were in full voice during their respective EFL Cup fixtures with chants of ‘Ole’s at the wheel’ heard, as was pointed out on social media.
A report from the Manchester Evening News (via the tweet below) noted that the Emirates Stadium was treated to a rendition of the song mocking Manchester United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, from the away section during Arsenal’s 2-0 victory over Marcelo Bielsa’s men.

Reds fans in particular had enjoyed more than a few choruses of the popular chant in the wake of the Merseysiders’ Old Trafford romp at the weekend.
It’s not a particularly good look for Manchester United when several rival fans are actively ripping into their manager in domestic cup ties.
In fact, we can’t even begin to imagine how supporters of the Old Trafford-based outfit are feeling at the moment after being torn apart in their own back garden at the hands of a rampant Liverpool side.
With tough tests against Tottenham and Manchester City coming up in the English top-flight, increasing pressure on Solskjaer’s position at the helm of the club could reach a boiling point if the Norwegian fails to make an impression in either tie.
