Another good start for Solskjaer as Man United beats Watford

Posted April 01, 2019

Manchester United were fortunate to beat Watford after an "awful" display at Old Trafford on Saturday, according to Luke Shaw.

Solksjaer, a former United striker, was named the club's permanent manager on Thursday, having replaced the fired Jose Mourinho on an interim basis in December.

There is a real air of hope at Old Trafford this week with the news that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been made the permanent manager of Manchester United on a three-year contract.

Put to Solskjaer that it was a good result but perhaps a less impressive performance, the newly-appointed manager said: "Well summarised".

"I didn't think about it when I was a player until I got my bad injury, then I had the three years where I thought I needed to be a coach".

Theresa May ponders fourth bid to pass deal
MPs will hold a second round of indicative votes in the Commons on Monday to find out if they can find agreement on a way forward. A version of this proposal received the most support in the first round, falling just six votes short of a majority.

Watford impressed a week out from their FA Cup semi-final, with Solskjaer saying they are the best side outside the top six along with Wolves, who they face at Wembley next weekend.

"But after we scored, for the rest of the first half we played some great counter-attacking stuff (and) defended well".

United are expected to back Solskjaer with substantial funds to rebuild the squad but the Norwegian said he would not spend recklessly.

Doucoure dragged a shot wide from inside the United box as the home side endured a strangely sluggish start in the Manchester sun, but they took the lead 28 minutes in, with Rashford clipping a clever finish over Ben Foster after Luke Shaw won back the ball on the edge of his own area and sent his England team-mate through on goal.

With Paul Pogba jogging and drifting, Nemanja Matic loose and wasteful, Ander Herrera impotent and Anthony Martial at his infuriatingly ambivalent worst, United were as bad as they had been in their FA Cup defeat to Wolves before the global break, if not worse.

"I'll always have a really good word to say about him, as will probably everyone who has ever met the guy".

"The second half was disappointing, again".

"Paul is important for us, but we couldn't keep the ball today".

United however had to labour through during the Saturday, March 30, encounter as they struggled to settle in during the opening exchanges.

"It's true it wasn't enough to get points but I am happy with the performance".
