Solskjaer's winning start at Manchester United continues in FA Cup

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Victory continues Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's remarkable start as United manager, with the Red Devils yet to taste defeat under their new boss.

A lot is expected of Lukaku as the most expensive striker in United's history, but he is not guaranteed a starting place under Solskjaer.

Alexis Sanchez came off the bench to set up United's second goal of the game vs Newcastle United and if Solskjaer can get the best out of the South American, then, United will be really fearsome up front.

It was the question that sat on the lips of more timid colleagues but Solskjaer, without banishing the baby-faced smile that so often lights up his expression, was more than ready. But we made nine changes, and they hadn't played together as a unit so I made it hard for the boys. That is already five worse than the total number they conceded in all of the 2017/18 league campaign.

"And when you win four, you expect to win the next one as well".

Manchester United were headed to Dubai straight away after the match against Reading.

"I think he will be okay, he was exhausted. Individual quality managed to get us through".

Slightly Mad Studios Mad Box Console Promises VR and 4K Gaming
Bell believes that they can ship the Mad Box at a level competitive with the launch prices of other home consoles. Bell explained that the console will dethrone the Xbox One X as the most "powerful console ever built".

They face Reading in the FA Cup third round on Saturday (12:30 GMT). It was about seeing what you can do to go back to the way we used to play, the way Man United are supposed to play, exciting football.

"I've got to know everyone, I've had plenty of time to speak with them but not much time to train", Solskjaer said.

Lukaku netted his third in as many games in first-half stoppage time, but things could have been different had Danny Loader and Callum Harriott done better with fine chances either side of the break.

Lukaku has his scoring touch back.

At Old Trafford the system was in use as it prepares for its introduction into the Premier League next season and VAR was called into question 20 minutes into the match.

Following a move instigated by Sanchez down the left, Fred had a goal ruled out because of offside but a penalty was awarded following consultation with the video assistant referee after a foul on Mata in the buildup.

United are due to fly to Dubai after the game for a warm weather training camp, ahead of the trip to Tottenham on January 13, and Solskjaer was warned his squad to expect four days of hard work.
