Good end of the year for Manchester United who hardly seem to remember the crisis of a few weeks ago, much less Jose Mourinho. Ole Solskjaer’s team beat Bournemouth 4-1 on Sunday, scoring their third consecutive win and reaching 35 points to move closer to international competition positions.
The figure of the match was the French player Paul Pogba, who since the departure of the Portuguese coach, has more freedom on the field and seems to have recovered the desire to play. French midfielder Paul Pogba “doubled” Manchester United’s 4-1 win over Bournemouth.
Marcus Rashford and Romelu Lukaku increased the score for the home side, while Nathan Aké got the discount at the end of the first half. Twelve goals in three outings showed that the Norwegian wants a team focused on attack, attacking on the flanks and, above all, very organized in the way they do.
The changes with the departure of the Portuguese are more than evident, the players have more freedom, have more the ball with Ander Herrara in the field and Fellaini in the bench. Rashford of center forward and a happy Pogba, has been the formula of Solskjaer to forget the crisis and to defeat all his rivals until the moment, Besides being always ahead in the scoreboard. The Manchester United of the Norwegian usually go to rest ahead on the board, which helps the inertia is more than positive within the set of ‘red devils’. It was not the same with Mourinho.
Now, with the end of the year expected, Manchester United expects a 2019 in which they can continue discounting in the table of positions to ensure a place in the Champions League next season.
