Solskjaer Survives First Hurdle As Man United Defeat Tottenham

Solskjaer Survives First Hurdle As Man United Defeat Tottenham

Under-fire Man United manager Ole Gunner Solskjaer has passed one of his three-game ultimatum as the Reds bounced back to winning ways after overcoming Tottenham 3-0 in Saturday’s Premier League game.

Cristiano Ronaldo produced a timely influential display in a pivotal 3-0 victory in north London for his hugely under-pressure manager, who desperately needed a result amid intense speculation over his future following last weekend’s 5-0 home humiliation by rivals Liverpool.

Ronaldo provided a brilliant goal of his own as well as a stylish assist for Edinson Cavani, with substitute Marcus Rashford also netting to offer Solskjaer some much-needed respite.

While he is by no means out of the woods yet, it is Spurs counterpart Nuno who will now be feeling the heat after a desperate display from his side.

The respective managers’ team selections – Solskjaer going three at the back and Nuno drafting in Ben Davies and Giovani Lo Celso – had rather suggested there would be a cautious start to proceedings.

    Is the combo of CR7 and Cavani, two strikers with the combined age of 70, going to be the salvation of Solksjaer?
    With Bruno Fernandes pulling the strings behind them, they looked imperious today. The experience both strikers brought to the game was critical. Big players bringing out the goods in the big game. CR7 with a goal that defied the laws of physics, and a lovely assist to Cavani for the second goal. And a fine strike by Rashford to finally put Tottenham to sleep.
    Equally important, Man United looked solid at the back, with 3 center backs Maguire, Varane and Lindelof.
    Looks like this 3-5-2 formation has the potential to save Ole Gunnar’s job. They face a stern test against Man City next. But this win will go a long way in restoring the trust of the fans in their under fire manager.
