Manchester United just cannot be stopped under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Red Devils have won eight matches in a row under the Norwegian, who is putting together a seriously strong case to make the manager’s job his own.

Man United’s season was going nowhere under Jose Mourinho.

But now, there’s a real belief that the campaign can end on a high.

They’re just three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea in the Premier League and are through to the fifth round of the FA Cup following a 3-1 win against Arsenal on Friday evening.

Alexis Sanchez, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial were on the scoresheet as Solskjaer’s side outclassed their opponents at the Emirates Stadium.

It was Sanchez’s first goal since October 6 and Man United will hope that it can spark a turnaround in the Chilean’s career at the club.


Rashford ruined Fred in the warm-up

Marcus Rashford, who is going through a purple patch right now, started the match on the bench and came on in the 72nd minute.

But he had actually produced his best moment of the evening in the warm-up.

Man United’s players were taking part in a Rondo drill, with midfielder Fred in the middle.

It’s never nice being in the middle and Rashford made it a whole lot worse for Fred with a brilliant nutmeg that sent their teammates wild.

Stop that, Marcus!

Notice Martial’s reaction. He just runs off in utter disbelief.

The Frenchman wasn’t the only one who couldn’t get enough of Rashford’s skill. Check out the reaction from Man United supporters on Twitter.

The contrast between Man United’s fortunes under Mourinho and Solskjaer couldn’t be more apparent and Gary Lineker believes the Norwegian’s stint is “probably the greatest audition in the history of football.”

"They look happy, they look like they're enjoying their football. It's the antithesis of what they were at the start of the season,” the Match of the Day host said, per BBC Sport.

"What Solskjaer has done is remarkable.”
