After a disappointing defeat to Wolves in midweek, Manchester United have it all to do if they want to secure a place in the top four this season. Despite that loss, it’s worth remembering that United were 11 points adrift of the top four when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was announced as interim manager in December. Since then, a remarkable turnaround has seen United charge up the form table and close the gap to just two-points.

Solskjaer scored in United's first win at Chelsea after the Millennium in 2002 but United had to wait nearly nine more years to beat Chelsea in their own back yard. Wayne Rooney decided the 2011 Champions League quarter-final first leg and Javier Hernandez settled an eventful 3-2 encounter in … [Read more...] about Ole Gunnar Solskjaer equals two Manchester United away records
