Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has praised Manchester United’s second half display. As the red devils laid waste of Sunday opponents Chelsea.
United put their new assets to the test, and it seems the manager was satisfied with the result.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits United weren’t perfect in the win at Old Trafford. But the manager is happy to have sealed a massive three points against Chelsea in the opening Premier League fixture.
“The second half was outstanding, defended well in shape and counter attacked well,” Solskjaer told BBC Sport. “We can count ourselves a little bit lucky to go in 1-0 up, but then half-time came, we settled down and played well second half.
“The fitter you are, the more you can do. It’s as simple as that. The boys have been working hard but this is still the start, we can still get some hard work in.”
Solskjaer was particularly happy with new signing Harry Maguire, who made an instant impact on the team, as they racked a 4-0 win.
“He’s done exactly what we’ve signed him for, his presence in both boxes, his calmness and composure on the ball.
“He’s a leader and with him, David de Gea and Victor Lindelof they marshalled that back line really well. It is important to have strong personalities at the back.”
