Manchester United are back in the Premier League with a 3-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday night.
They fell home to Manchester United in a game called pre-match ‘El Sackico’ – as Nuno Espirito Santo and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer faced off to ease the pressure on their management positions.
For Solskjaer, this win was as much needed as any other career in Old Trafford. He lost here and it could have been the curtains after sending five home to Liverpool last weekend and poor form and play before that. His solution right now is to strike back five with two experienced strikers you can count on to do business.
It worked, as United even kept a clean sheet for the first time in decades and saw Cristiano Ronaldo, Edinson Cavani, and Marcus Rashford score three goals to secure victory.
To Nuno, it looks like curtains. This was a really bad game for the United team that was expected to respond, they didn’t have to play very well to win. The home fans have been very busy in the big part of the evening and are not happy with the appointment of the seventh head coach and the ball that comes with it.
