Manchester United has been impressive under Ole Gunner Solskjaer in the past few months, with the heroics of the champions league on Wednesday, a recent reminder of just how well the team has improved under his management. Old Trafford is Buzzing again and there is a feel-good sensation everywhere you look around Manchester United now.
With the help and experience of Mike Phelan and Micheal Carrick, he has been able to “steady the ship” as the board of Manchester United expected him to. Pogba, Rashford, Herrera, Lindelof are just the right examples of players whose fortunes seemed to have turned out for brighter under Ole.
Manchester United has gotten a bit of the fear factor back, fans are pleased with the way the team plays and the balance between attack and defense. Manchester “red” is now a threat as a team and as has always been the history with the teams over the years attack the opposition till the final whistle.
They say all good things must come to an end and it seems that was the case for Solskjaer against Arsenal at the Emirates yesterday. Manchester United’s impressive run of wins away from home came to an end yesterday as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side lost for the first time in the league since the defeat against Liverpool in December.
The 2-0 defeat was Solskjaer’s first in the Premier League since taking over and he now has the task of getting his players to bounce back. And, they’ve got five days to work as the next game isn’t until Saturday against Wolves in the FA Cup.
The positives for Solskjaer are that Nemanja Matic and Anthony Martial both made their returns from injury and generally the team played well and in truth were a bit unlucky hitting the bar twice and drawing massive saves from the Arsenal Goalkeeper who was within his elements.
There is also the long term goal of finishing Top Four which looked impossible before he joined and can actually tilt in Manchester United’s favor if the opposite team’s results go south in the remaining eight games of the season. It is indeed that close now compared to the Mourinho era where Fans had lost all hope about getting a Champions league Spot at the end of the season.
“It’s one of those days you have to dust yourselves down from, have a good reaction we’ve got Wolves next in the cup,” Solskjaer said.
Up next for Man Utd is Wolves, a side that has also improved considerably in recent Matches.
