Manchester United have made an absolute change since dismissed José Mourinho as coach. At the command of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the Devils netted 1-5 at Cardiff City in Saturday’s Premier League game, a hand that could mark a turning point for the recovery of the team.
United jumped onto the lawn of Cardiff City Stadium with a football idea showier. As a result of that initial small renovation, it went ahead with a free-kick from Rashford, who in the third minute took advantage of the poor positioning of the local barrier. After half an hour, Herrera appeared to leave the image of the day in the Premier with a huge shot to confirm the improvement of United, who suffered a small setback at the edge of the break with a penalty from Víctor Camarasa. However, Martial answered after a good collective move that preceded the last two goals of the night, both by Jesse Lingard, one from the penalty spot and the other in the discount after finishing a heads up.
The Solskjaer’s dominated throughout the match and made a resounding victory that also makes history in the Club: United did not score five goals since May 2013, when Sir Alex Ferguson was still on the bench, that time they drew 5-5 against West Brom.
With these three points, the United remains eight points behind Chelsea, the last club that at the moment would play the next Champions League and 19 points behind the leader of the Premier, Liverpool. But with the whole second round ahead, and with a new and fresh air in the figure of Solskjaer, the ‘red devils’ can aspire to stick to the continental illusion when in February they face one of the favorites to take the competition, the PSG of Neymar and company.
