It’s two wins in two games for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and the Manchester United boss as well as the club’s humongous fan base cannot wait for the next fixture to arrive.
While the Red Devils have already been displaying impressive football, the squad is yet to be at full strength, especially due to the unavailability of superstars like Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku.
Alexis, who was ruled out with a hamstring injury in the final week of November, has returned to training at Carrington, but Lukaku is yet to make his comeback from the time-off.
Furthermore, Anthony Martial was also not a part of the match-day squad that hosted Huddersfield at Old Trafford, after getting sidelined through illness.
But Solskjaer is hopeful of having all three of the aforementioned forwards back for Manchester United’s upcoming Premier League encounter against Bournemouth on Sunday.
Speaking after the Boxing Day win, Ole stated: “Fantastic result, I’m delighted with three points. Some of the football was really, really good as well. You can’t ask for more. Well, I can ask for more: I can ask for a clean sheet, the boys have promised me that soon!
“You don’t in one week change anything. You change the mindset. I want my team to play in a certain way and you give them little pointers here and there. It’s a work in progress: it’s going to take time to players to go from one manager and what he wanted.
“We’ll improve as time goes on. I said to the staff towards the end: when you go 2-0 up, maybe 3-0 up, next week we’ll have Sanchez, Martial back, you’ve got Lukaku to put on, I think we could have really finished them off then.”
