Solskjær’s Manchester United manage to prove that they are too good for Tottenham Hotspur

Ole Gunnar Solskjær has raised a celebratory fist at the final whistle.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær celebrated with his fist raised at the final whistle but his fate as the Man United manager is still yet to be seen. 

On Saturday, Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s Man Utd proved too good for Tottenham. Ronaldo, Cavani, and Rashford all scored goals to give them the victory.

Under Nuno Espirito Santo, Spurs have deteriorated into mediocrity. This cannot continue, as Daniel Levy, the club’s chairman, knows. 

The chanting calling for his resignation could be heard throughout the Old Trafford stadium. With loud cheers directed at Nuno for not knowing what he was doing.

Solskjar deserves credit despite United’s poor performance against Liverpool last Sunday. The Norwegian is now fifth in the standings, but there was also a solid strategy. With Ronaldo benefiting from the presence of Cavani in the attack, Solskjaer was able to win the match with a clean sheet, the first since August.

The veteran United front two were far too wily for the back four and the goal conceded proved this. The lack of pressing ability in Ronaldo at 36 years old will not always be a disadvantage in games like these.

The forward scored a goal in the first half that left Hugo Lloris in awe. It felt like a statement: “Just be done with me”.

Solskjær fighting for his spot at United 

Manchester United are now fifth. The team is doing better under Solskjær. Ronaldo had his best game of the season, the back three played well and there was a clean sheet. In the 64th minute, Ronaldo set up Cavani’s goal with a deft pass after being picked out by Bruno Fernandes.

Cavani and Ronaldo combined have an age of 70, but Solskjar was able to see a new identity forming.

The manager of Manchester United had to respond after a week of speculation about his future, and it was encouraging to see him prioritize solidity over flair by switching to a three-four-two formation and creating a more balanced and complementary team.

By their standards, Manchester United’s season has been very inconsistent. The team has dealt with injuries and inconsistency. Because of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s mixed results so far, they weren’t sure if he should be manager next year.

Later, the article mentions how, after what seemed like an eternity of speculation about who would be United’s manager next season, the club turned around its matches to remain competitive. Seeing Ole Gunnar Solskjær shift from his previous tactics to a 3-4-2-1 gives his team more balance, which was encouraging to see.

United’s fans were belting out their support for Solskjær. He is far from popular in the dressing room but they are still sticking with him. More relevantly, his players are still with him too. More pertinently, the players still believe.
