The Red Devils had been struggling ever since Alex Ferguson handed over the mantle of leadership to former Manager, David Moyes who was afterwards succeeded by Van Gaal and Jose Mourinho.

All these above mentioned managers as we all know, failed to impress the Glazzers as they were all trying to implement their own new formations rather than blending it with that of Sir Alex Ferguson.

These led to a fatal collapse of Old Trafford and thereby making them a minor competitor of the top 6 position on the Premier League table.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was appointed interim manager and afterwards made the permanent manager amid Mourinho sack saga. The Norwegian was part of the squad coached by Sir Alex Ferguson and also holds good records for the club.

Solskjaer’s first brillant move was submitting to Sir Alex for directions on how to lead Man United just like he [Ferguson] did. Something the other guys never thought of.

Thanks to Ed Woodward who at least for once agreed with the manager to spend huge cash on the market. Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James all impressed in their debut for the Red Devils.

Taking a prudent look at the Red Devils Sunday game, we are reminded of the Ferguson days when you don’t dare loss the ball to Man United in a position that would place them in counter attack.

Most counter attacks against Chelsea were carefully and handsomely converted, including Daniel James’ confident goal.

Despite the Blues missed some chances and hitted the woodwork on multiple occasions, Man United had the better taste of the game as Marcus Rashford was also confident on his goals and almost hitted the second hat-trick of the 2019/2020 premier league season.

Hmm, I suspect some mind hijacking talks from the manager must have made this possible. Although Chelsea had some loopholes, which the Red Devils took good care of.

Very bad performance from Zouma, Ross Barkley, Azpilicueta and Jorginho who sold out the ball on multiple occasions. Kudos to Emerson who hit the woodwork twice.

Indeed, Solskjaer would be bringing back the lost glory if only he continues to improve in this direction, and also makes the possession more of his own, just like Ferguson did.
