Old Trafford, once again, feels like a contented place. Ole Gunnar Solskjær was wearing a sunrise of a smile. There was even an embrace from Fred the Red, United’s mascot, before he took his seat and he will have found it pleasing to see his team continue their immaculate start post-Mourinho. Not quite as much, perhaps, as the five-goal victory at Cardiff, but pleasing all the same.
Solskjaer is certainly entitled to feel pleased with himself after two second-half goals from Paul Pogba, to add to the one scored by Nemanja Matic during the opening period, made it back-to-back victories and gave Old Trafford the chance to go through their old songbook paying homage to the man who has been given the manager’s job on a caretaker basis until the end of the season.
