Ole Gunnar Solksjaer is Manchester United Manager

Glad to see they finally appointed the United legend as permanent Manchester United manager. He fully deserved this job.

Press conference below. In Ole we trust!

Manchester United 0 – 0 Liverpool [EPL 2018/2019]

Three main players were injured in the first half as Ole Gunnar Solksjaer said:

Everything that could have gone wrong did go wrong in the first half.

We defend very well in the second half while also creating better chances than Liverpool. Fingers crossed I hope they don’t win the league again this year.

Game highlights below:

Chelsea 0 – 2 Manchester United [FA Cup]

Another win in London as we beat cup holder Chelsea to progress to the 6th round of the FA Cup. We’ll face Wolverhampton Wanderers away which will be played on 16 March 2019.

Paul Pogba was brilliant, while Chris Smalling, Nemanja Matic and Sergio Romero were special performers. But Ander Herrera was definitely man of the match!

Highlights below:

Bring on Liverpool next weekend!

Manchester United 0 – 2 Paris Saint-Germain [Champions League]

We were beaten, not trashed, by a much better side.

They’ve lost Neymar and Cavani but surely they find enough time to setup accordingly for the match at Old Trafford. It was an even game until we lost two crucial members of Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s attacking system though: Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial by the end of the first half.

Second half they dominated a bit more and played more effectively because our backup players just weren’t good enough. At the end, we got 1 player red carded, they got zero. They scored two, we scored zero.

It’s probably almost impossible to win the second tie in Paris later next month but we have nothing to lose anyway so maybe we have to just give it a go.

Hope we give them hell. Come on you Reds! 😀

Fulham 0 – 3 Manchester United [Video]

Paul Pogba scored two while fellow Frenchman Anthony Martial scored one. It was the sixth consecutive away win from home.

Brilliant day at the Craven Cottage. Highlights below:

Leicester City 0 – 1 Manchester United [Video]

A match far from classic Manchester United which Paul Pogba manage to maximize a misplaced pass from Leicester City defender and give it to Marcus Rashford who scores the winning goal. Glad we can win ugly too under Solksjaer. 3 important points away from home!

Manchester United 2 – 2 Burnley

It wasn’t surprising to see Burnley came to Old Trafford fighting to steal points. They manage to score two and defend the lead until 85th minute before Ole Gunnar Solkjaer’s Manchester United scores two back.

Not the best result but I am sure they’ve learnt a lot as we’re heading to tough February and March with matches against big teams in Champions League, FA Cup and Premier League coming.

Watch highlights below:

Tricky Fixtures Ahead for OGS’ Manchester United

After relatively easy run that resulted 8 wins in 8 games, there will be a fixture run of Paris Saint-Germain (Champions League), Chelsea (FA Cup) and Liverpool (Premier League) ahead in February. It’s almost like a real-life audition for the interim manager. 😀

I am not complaining. I understand that this kind of fixtures are our club were supposed to be involved in. We should be well up for it.

Chelsea for 5th Round FA Cup

It’s a trip to Stamford Bridge against current champion Chelsea in the fifth round of the FA Cup. The tie to be played across the weekend of 15-18 February. Source: FA Cup website.

Our record isn’t really good away from home in the capital so this could be huge. Bring on Chelsea!

Update: It is confirmed that the game will be played in 18 February.
