Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has brought the back happy times at Manchester United, at least for now, and there has been nothing but positivity in the camp since his arrival.

It is probably the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson’s reign as manager that the team is expected to win every match they now play, and there are hopes of them doing so with style and flair.

Ole has managed United to 5 wins out of 5 since taking over in December, but his first massive test takes place this weekend.

The Red Devils travel to Wembley to take on the high-flying Tottenham Hotspur, and given recent speculation of Pochettino’s inevitable arrival at the Theatre of Dreams, the fixture promises to be feisty, competitive, and technically brilliant.

Ahead of the game, Solskjaer has admitted that he is aware of the rumours going around the footballing world, and while speaking before Tottenham clash, he had no hesitation in acknowledging them.

The current caretaker manager of Manchester United agreed that Poch “has done a very good job” with Spurs, and there are perfectly justified reasons for him being linked with the role at Old Trafford.

However, Ole spoke like a figure of focus when he added: “The speculation is there for a reason, because he’s done well. But it’s not my job to rate different managers. My focus is on me and my team.”

United have been impressing one and all with their performances in the weeks gone by, and if they emerge victorious against a well managed Pochettino side, then the club hierarchy will surely start considering the Norwegian for the permanent role at the helm.
