Solskjaer gets record-tying 5th straight win as United coach

Solskjaer has done a wonderful job with the cards at hand, and it will be a real test for the Norwegian when we play Tottenham in a couple of weeks. I'm here to voice my opinion on that and I'm sure we'll sit down, me and Ed if we've got anything in the pipeline.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer enjoyed a fifth successive win since taking over as interim manager of Manchester United when his side beat Reading 2-0 in the third round of the FA Cup at Old Trafford on Saturday (Jan 5).

"They controlled it in the first five minutes and we weren't up to speed".

Paul Pogba has remained in Manchester to receive treatment on a knock while the rest of the United squad flew to Dubai for a training camp.

Sone Aluko was denied by a good save from Romero, but United were mostly comfortable in the closing minutes as they secured their place in next Monday's fourth-round draw.

To be fair to them, Sanchez styled it out pretty well and Solskjaer did not make a big deal of it.

"I think the more games you play, you mentioned he's played almost 150 games now, I think having a manager who's been a striker, who's been in those positions can speak to you in a way I guess maybe others haven't been able to". Like his United team-mates, the forward did not have much meaningful time on the ball and looked like his confidence was beginning to slip with frustration sneaking.

"VAR, VAR, VAR" chanted United fans playfully when Andy Yiadom handled a Sanchez cross soon after, with Lukaku seeing an effort denied after bursting through as the home side looked to extend their advantage. Hopefully he'll be OK for next weekend [against Tottenham]. Ole said, "You know we're about winning trophies, of course, and the FA Cup final is such a fantastic final to play in".

Andreas Pereira was caught in possession one too many times in the first half, once on the edge of his own penalty area. They press very high, they recovered balls in the offensive midfield.

The 24-year-old didn't put a foot wrong in a tough away game at a hard venue and was one of the key reasons that the team emerged from that match with three points.

"Performance but the result is not the same".

"It means that it is missing in my team like a killer instinct".
