If one would have given Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the offer of beating Tottenham 1-0 at Wembley to make it 5 wins out of 5 in the Premier League, he would have snatched it out of your hands when he took over as caretaker manager of Manchester United.

His arrival since last month has resulted in the team playing without fear, defending better, attacking with winning intent and representing the classic United way of playing football.

The positivity has been spreading across the whole team, as the performances have gone up a notch and the top 4 ambitions have sprung back to life.

While the supporters have been going gaga over the recent wins, Gary Neville has identified 3 players who he thinks are not benefiting from Ole’s style of football.


Carrick Reveals The Biggest Change Solskjaer Has Made To Improve United

After the Spurs game, the pundit told the Gary Neville Podcast: “The profile of the team has changed.

“We talked about it during commentary, gone are Marouane Fellaini, Juan Mata and Romelu Lukaku from the starting line-up.”

He further added: “Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is picking the profile of player Manchester United need and that’s players who have the energy to get from box to box quickly and counter-attack with quality. You’ve seen that in the last few weeks.”

While the trio is certainly gifted in terms of talent, Neville seems to be making perfect sense here. Time running out for these star players?
