Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has restored a feel-good factor back to Manchester United once again.

The Norwegian manager has only been at the helm for two games but, the change his appointment has made is plain to see.

United won 5-1 in his first game in charge away at Cardiff.

They were hoping to produce another good result and performance in his second game against Huddersfield.

And United did just that.

They managed to open up a three goal lead, thanks to Nemanja Matic opening the scoring and then a second half brace from Paul Pogba.

Mathias Jørgensen netted a late consolation goal for the away side but, United would still have been very happy about the three points.

United have been playing with such confidence at the moment, with the likes of Paul Pogba thriving under Solskjaer.

Juan Mata has not been a regular this season but he was given his first opportunity under Solskjaer.

He managed 80 minutes and, during his time on the pitch, he pulled off a terrific pass.

With United 2-0 up and approaching the 70th minute, Ashley Young had the ball in his hands in his own half.

He decided to take the throw-in to Mata and, without hesitating, the Spanish midfielder produced a brilliant first time volleyed pass to Luke Shaw.

The ball landed perfectly to Shaw, who did the pass justice by producing a good touch.

Wow. That really is a brilliant pass from Mata.

Not many players in world football would have even thought about making the pass, let alone pulling it off.

It just goes to show how much confidence United's players are currently playing with.

Solskjaer has got United playing some great football in his early days at Man United, with the club scoring eight times in his two games in charge.

And Ryan Giggs, who played alongside Solskjaer at the club, always believed he would become a manager.

"He was always quietly confident, believed in his own ability - and even though people think he's a nice guy, you know he's got an edge to him, which you need as manager," he said, per Sky Sports.

"As he got more experienced, especially when he had that injury and a bit of time out, it's quite well-documented that he used to take notes of little things that Sir Alex would do.

"So, yeah, I believed that he would go into coaching and he's doing a great job, obviously."
