Manchester United Starting XI Prediction at Tottenham Hotspur


manchester united line up

Manchester United have won all four games since Ole Gunnar Solskajaer took over the team on an interim basis, but how much of it was due to a much easier run of fixtures? Or perhaps the turnaround is really more due to the Solskjaer revitalization and reinvigoration?

We’ll learn a lot this weekend when United visit Wembley Stadium to take on Tottenham Hotspur. In the words of Outkast, from their song Knowing, “From this point on it only gets rougher!” Solskjaer has made it known repeatedly that he wants the job full time, and if he consistently win big games like this, he should get his opportunity.

The 45-year-old Norwegian has said that right now, style matters more than results. Because, as the man known as the baby-faced assassin during his playing days pointed out, results are not something you can dictate, but your approach is. The most exciting and compelling component of the Solskjaer era thus far has been the attacking approach.

He’s unshackled the team, and Pogba seems to be Pogba again. Solskjaer seems to believe he can get Alexis Sanchez right again too. And Romelu Lukaku has credited his surge in form to a chat he had with his interim boss.
