Ole Gunnar Solskjaer remains unbeaten and is presenting an increasingly compelling case to be named Manchester United’s manager, after succeeding where Pep Guardiola, Jürgen Klopp and Maurizio Sarri have all tripped up. This was the ninth victory from 10 games for Solskjaer and while it was not a performance full of the recent verve and vigour, Marcus Rashford’s winner on his 100th Premier League appearance lifted United further up the table. Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea have all stumbled against Claude Puel’s unpredictable Leicester in recent weeks and United had to withstand a second-half of constant pressure to maintain their manager’s outstanding record. Solskjaer has now won five consecutive away games in all competitions for the first time since a similar streak in September and October 2012, in Sir Alex Ferguson's final season in charge. The Norwegian has, at the very least, presented United’s board with a genuine dilemma and the … [Read more...] about Marcus Rashford fires Manchester United to victory and makes compelling case to keep Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

3 February 2019 • 2:11pm Auto update On Off 2:10PM 5 min 'Sloppy' is the current go-to synonym for 'poor' and both defences have been guilty so far of poor positioning and heavy touches. Rashford misses a golden opportunity when Pogba ghosts down the inside-left channel and stands up a perfectly-flighted floaty diagonal to the far post.

They move the ball … [Read more...] about Leicester City vs Manchester United, Premier League: live score updates and latest
Manchester United have a chance to show just how far they've come under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer when they travel to Leicester City on Sunday. The Norwegian's eight match winning streak since he took charge at Old Trafford came to an end on Tuesday night and it will be interesting to see how his rejuvenated players react to the set-back. United certainly showed character in the 2-2 draw with Burnley. The Reds were still 2-0 behind going into the final few minutes of the game but Paul Pogba pulled one back with a trademark penalty before Victor Lindelof scuffed in a close-range volley to clinch a point. United have looked reborn since the sacking of Jose Mourinho, playing with a new found attacking swagger, but after squandering their winning streak against lowly Burnley another tough task comes next at the King Power Stadium. Leicester are experiencing a mixed season, with great results often followed by disappointing ones. They beat Chelsea and Manchester City back-to-back, but then went … [Read more...] about What TV channel is Leicester City vs Manchester United on?
