Manchester United are slowly turning into a force to be reckoned with under the management of their new interim gaffer, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The team has played beautiful football under the Norwegian, having already scored 12 goals and picked up 9 Premier League points by winning all 3 games so far.

In fact, in doing so, Solskjaer appears to have entered his name in the history books, joining an elite company in the process.

Following the 4-1 win over Bournemouth, Solskjaer became only the third manager in the club’s history to win his first three fixtures – the other two being Sir Matt Busby and Jose Mourinho.

However, Ole’s record certainly seems to be the most impressive, as Busby’s side only managed to score 8 in the three opening fixtures, whereas Mourinho’s men bagged 6.

The 1999 Champions League hero also became the first manager in Premier League history to see his team score 10+ goals in his first three games.

But Solskjaer has shifted his focus onto the next game already, and he has set a new demand from his players when they take on Newcastle this Wednesday.

Speaking after the Bournemouth victory, the manager stated: “You always look for improvements, we’re looking for that clean sheet. You cannot switch off in this league. But it’s a very, very good performance, the crowd enjoyed it.

Now we’ve got a different kind of test at Newcastle. We’re looking for that clean sheet, that foundation that will let the front four go and enjoy themselves. It’s easier to perform and create chances when you know you’ve got a clean sheet.”
