Solskjaer wants to restore Fergie-style United

Solskjaer wants to restore Fergie-style United

"I was in my first year at the club, and they flew the youth team and reserve team over, and brought us to the game", O'Shea remembers.

"It's a new manager with different ideas, more freedom for the players".

When asked about the change in United under Solskjaer, Howe said: "I haven't been at this stadium before (now) this season, but I imagine the atmosphere is probably the biggest change and that can rejuvenate players".

According to the same story, Manchester United have been long-term admirers of Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar and Napoli centre-half Kalidou Koulibaly.

United conceded consolations against Cardiff, Huddersfield and Bournemouth before Newcastle drew a blank in a 2-0 defeat at St James' Park on Wednesday and Herrera is relieved to get De Gea off his back.

The Norwegian former striker has won his first four Premier League matches as United manager - a record that only former boss Matt Busby can match. "When you have players, like we have, with pace - Paul [Pogba], Anthony [Martial], Alexis [Sanchez], Romelu [Lukaku], [Marcus] Rashford - that's how we played with Andy [Cole] and Yorkie [Dwight Yorke] with Giggsy [Ryan Giggs] and Becks [David Beckham] down the sides". That was my last game, we lost an FA Cup final [against Chelsea in 2007].

He reminded them about their duties as a United player and their responsibility to represent the club and its values.

He has already cut the gap with the Premier League's top four to six points after four successive wins and will kick off their FA Cup campaign against Championship strugglers Reading on Saturday(live on ESPN+ from 7.30 ET on Saturday). "One can play on the right, they can play two through the middle".

But as a temporary boss, for now, Solskjaer also stressed that the most important part of his job is not planning for the future with transfers, rather working with the existing squad for results.

However, you have to try and find that balance to ensure you still win the game. "I had to cope with him after the game, killing my mind, telling me that he wanted a clean sheet and I'm happy for him as well because he got a clean sheet".

"The more you are here, the more you enjoy it. I don't look at these games and think "well, we can't win that" - I think we can win every single game".

Tahith Chong and Mason Greenwood are huge youth prospects from the academy and now would be the flawless time to hand them their first-team debuts. There'll be tougher games coming up, we know that.
