Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can do no wrong at the minute.

The Norwegian led Manchester United to their fourth straight victory with a 2-0 win against Newcastle United.

Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford scored the goals to continue Solskjaer’s perfect start as the club’s caretaker manager.

"You'd be happy with four wins from four - we haven't conceded from open play yet either,” Solskjaer reflected at full-time, per BBC Sport.

Gary Neville highlighted the impact that his former teammate has made since stepping in as Jose Mourinho’s interim replacement.

“What Solskjaer has done is get everyone happy; the connection with the fans is obvious,” Neville told Sky Sports, per the Manchester Evening News.

"He’s obviously connected with the players. In the first few weeks the performance levels have been a lot higher. The happiness is a lot higher and I think it was needed all around.”

Newcastle fan tries to disrupt Neville

Yet, as well as offering his own thoughts and analysing the match, Neville also had to deal with a rather annoying Newcastle supporter who spotted him in the Sky Sports studio.

The fan banged on the window while Neville was in full flow.

He wouldn’t let up, prompting a quite priceless reaction from the former Manchester United right-back.

That’s certainly a look of, ‘what is this crazy guy doing?!’


When he wasn’t being disrupted, Neville also heaped praise on Rashford.

The 21-year-old is rejuvenated under Solskjaer, scoring three goals and providing an assist in four matches, and Neville believes he can become “really special” at Old Trafford.

“Marcus went to the World Cup as well but I think he’s earned his chance up top, he gives them something different and he is a fantastic player,” the pundit added.

"He is on the right trajectory to become something really special for Manchester United."


Solskjaer has benefitted from a pretty comfortable set of fixtures but he will be seriously tested in Man United's next Premier League outing. 

The Red Devils face Mauricio Pochettino's Tottenham Hotspur on January 13.
