What a way to celebrate Solskjaer's birthday!!! An injury depleted Manchester United team whipped Crystal Palace at Selhurst park on Wednesday night, thanks to a brace from Lukaku and a fine finish from the team's captain, Ashley Young.
Here are five things ManUtdNaijaFM learnt from clash:
1. F-RED ISN'T 'RED-DY' YET
The Brazilian midfielder Fred was given a starting spot yesterday in the heart of midfield. His 1st half display was bumpy with so many 'pot-holes'. He gradually grew into the game.
However, not much has changed as he was so often guilty of losing possession, which has been his major issue. He has the drive, and we hope he improves.
2. ROMELU 'TIMAYA' LUKAKU
The big Belgian scored for the 1st time in 10 games. He clearly has been working so hard. In previous games, despite not scoring, he had created chances and given assists.
Last night, he got a brace, and didn't celebrate until the 2nd goal. He hasnt been a happy striker. Kudos to him, as both goals were fantastic.
3. ALL HAIL THE CAPTAIN
The dressing room DJ and team's captain Ashley Young, got on the end of another assist from Paul 'Ikenna' Pogba.
Young has been fantastic for United, adapting to any role given him in the team. I'm sure he will not mind being a goal keeper if asked to. He is a true United legend in the making. He deserves some accolades.
4. SUPERB TEAM ATTITUDE
Despite having almost about nine injuries, the boys did not allow that dampen their attitude. Some of them had to adapt to new roles and were impressive.
Pogba was great, adapting to a right sided midfield role to allow Fred on the left, McTominay was solid and kept his cool, Dalot was impressive in a winger role, and the man of the moment, Luke 'Ajebota' Shaw was amazing again.
5. NO COMMENTS ON ALEXIS SANCHEZ!
IN THE END, with this victory, Ole has broken another record: the United manager with the most consecutive away wins in all competitions- Eight(8)..
What a way to celebrate his birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY OLÈ, More points, More goals, More victories.....Olè! Olè!! Olè!!!
