Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's honeymoon continues at Man United

It comes after Man United snatched an outstanding 5-1 victory against Cardiff City on Saturday, raising hopes for the 45-year-old coach to see back-to-back wins.

With a five points gap between United and fifth place Arsenal before the Gunners played at Brighton, they're likely to stay sixth for some time, but as their Norwegian manager said after his first game, this club gets stronger in the second half of the season. "They have shown this to me often". It is special hearing the crowd singing my song but now they start when the game begins. "I think the boys have settled me down really quickly". We have played against a world-class side, we have seen why Paul (Pogba) is a World Cup victor, two world-class strikes, and this is why we lost this game.

"And he fixed me with those blue eyes and they are kind of piercing and he does look younger than the age he actually is". A style perceived as negative under Mourinho had been heavily criticised.

So, if Solskjaer isn't even willing to shake hands with a Liverpool fan, you can bet he'll send out his players to exact revenge for that defeat on Merseyside. But he would repeat the trick in Solskjaer's second game in charge, exchanging passes with Jesse Lingard after 77 minutes before beating Lossl with a spectacular right-foot finish from 25 yards.


"I said the same to these lads as I do back in Molde: Work harder than them, enjoy yourselves, pass it forward, run forward, if you lose it, I don't mind as long as you work to win it back and they did. It's going to take time and I've done a little bit to tweak but will improve as time goes on".

Forwards Alexis Sanchez, Romelu Lukaku and Anthony Martial could all return for Sunday's game against Bournemouth. The gaffer has made three changes from last week's match. "It will be great to get them back".

While few would grumble if that hackneyed epithet were also to be retired in time for Christmas, Manchester United managers are among those expected to play along with the hype. Last season, he featured for 2 minutes in the PL against Crystal Palace in May and 2 minutes in the FA Cup vs Yeovil Town in January.
