After being promoted from caretaker manager to 'landlord' manager of Manchester United, Olè Gunnar Solskjaer kicked off his permanent reign with a win against stubborn Watford.
Here are five things #ManUtdNaijaFM learnt from the tough win:
1. RASHFORD IS NO LONGER RASH
Marcus 'Rashidi-Yekini' has been a different striker under Olè. He was known for being anxious in front of goal, hitting balls with his eyes closed thereby missing clear chances.
Since Olè took over, Rashford has become really calm in front of goal, slotting in balls into the net with precision. His goal today was ice-cold!!
2. WATCH MATIC CLOSELY
Nemanja 'Agu' Matic has been phenomenal for United since he was gifted to us by Abramovich. He has been the midfield pivot in his anchor-man role.
In the last few games, he has become slower and less effective. He is getting older and Olè needs to watch him closely. Watford had a field day in the heart of midfield today.
3. SHAW RAN THE SHOW
Luke 'Ajebota' Shaw was 'Coke-astic' again today. He ran the show from defence to attack with fantastic interceptions, passes and runs.
His assist for Rashford was superb, changing defence to attack before the Watford players could say 'Eze-goes-to-school'. Man of the match today!
4. ANTHONY 'IKECHUKWU' MARTIAL
The French man scored again, scrambling for the ball like Naija children fighting for the last part of the food we call 'bottom-pot'.
We need more of such aggression, hunger and passion from Martial as he often looked lost in the game today.
5. CLEAN SHEET.
United didn't deserve a clean sheet today. Watford knocked on the door severally with 20 shots fired at United's goal. A goal was inevitable.
Kudos however to United for their precision in attack- 6 shots on goal with 5 on target and 2 goals. No wastage!
IN THE END, It was a good way to start off as a 'Landlord'(permanent) manager. May the goals flow, may the three points keep rolling in, may the trophies fall in and long may you reign Olè!!!
What did you make of today's performance?
GLORY GLORY MAN UNITED.
