A run of four wins on the bounce, in the Premier League, has proven to be the perfect start for the Manchester United managerial reign of Ole Gunnar Solksjaer.
I guess you cannot ask for a better start than twelve points out of a possible twelve available, even more so when those twelve points have enhanced your chances of gate-crashing the top four before the end of the season.
Talking to the media, after making it a dream start, and as reported by the BBC, Solksjaer was pretty happy with the above, remarking:
“You’d be happy with four wins from four – we haven’t conceded from open play yet either.”
But it wasn’t all plain sailing at St James Park, with Manchester United not as dominant as they have been in Ole’s three previous games in charge, something the Norwegian was quick to talk about afterwards, remarking:
“We were slow in the first half but we controlled the game well, we concentrated and overall it was a very professional performance.
“In a five-minute spell we gave them two or three chances but then we settled down again.”
We did and the future, once again, is starting to look rosy.
Next up for Manchester United is a rest from Premier League action as we take on the Championship side, Reading, in the 3rd round of the FA Cup, on Saturday.
