Angel Gomes On Bench - Manchester United Team vs Huddersfield Confirmed

Paul Pogba of Manchester United celebrates after scoring his team's third goal during the Premier League match between Manchester United and Huddersfield Town

Solskjær takes charge of his first United game at Old Trafford on Boxing Day, something it looks as if he still can not quite believe is happening.

What a managerial debut for Ole Ole Gunnar Solskjaer!

Manchester United kicked off the post Jose Mourinho era with a fine 5-1 triumph over Cardiff City this past weekend, in what was Solskjaer's managerial debut.

After lifting United to a league-high runners-up spot in the wake of Sir Alex Ferguson's departure last season, that was not what United fans wanted to hear from their emboldened leader.

Solskjaer said: "It took us 20 minutes for us to settle as we were playing against a team who make it hard for us".

Previous reports have suggested that Ed Woodward would not be providing United's interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with many funds and that the club are instead holding off spending large fees until they are able to appoint someone on a permanent basis in the summer.

"Of course, you try to keep your emotion in check because I'm there to do a job, I've got to be focused", Solskjaer said.

Defender Terence Kongolo blazed his 10th-minute shot over the bar for Huddersfield but United never looked back after taking the lead and their incessant pressure produced two sublime Pogba strikes after the break.

"The players who play for this club have high standards to live up to". I don't like that managers get sacked but especially if we play the teams soon after this happened, like (Southampton) as well.

"When you've got players like this with the quality you are always going to create chances".

"I said the same to these lads as I do back in Molde: Work harder than them, enjoy yourselves, pass it forward, run forward, if you lose it, I don't mind as long as you work to win it back and they did".

"That comes when you sign for Man United", he added.

The reality of another relegation battle may have rubbed some of the shine off being in the Premier League but Wagner still wants players and fans to savour the occasion.

While few would grumble if that hackneyed epithet were also to be retired in time for Christmas, Manchester United managers are among those expected to play along with the hype. "That's tradition, that's history, that's how we play and want to play".

David de Gea could do nothing about Cardiff's goal from the penalty spot and Luke Shaw's marauding performance from left back was so good that both of those players will expect to play again here.
