Fafter a humiliating 5-0 defeat at home to Liverpool, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was under tremendous pressure, heading for the device against Tottenham…
Manchester United is back to normal stylishly, easily winning in London to add even more pressure to the Spurs coach Nuno Espiritu Santo…
The win gives Solskjaer time to demonstrate his abilities, motivating his players to keep his job and prove that they can change everything.
Goals from Cristiano Ronaldo, Edinson Cavani and Marcus Rashford showed the attacking potential of the team.
Solskjaer knows that with attackers of this caliber in command, forcing them to fire at full power, he has won half the battle.
In control of the game, Manchester United looked like the opposite of the chaotic side that has plagued matches lately.
Further tests ahead
Tottenham was a real test for the Red Devils, but it was perhaps the easiest of the next three.
With Atalanta and Manchester City On the horizon, two defeats in the next two will make Solskjaer more tense than ever.
The difference is that the Spurs themselves are out of shape and are fighting as hard as United, while the Italians and Citizens are showing much more impressive results.
With this confidence boost behind them, Manchester United you need to develop this victory with a large margin, otherwise you risk returning to square one.
With the support of the club
If United had eagerly fired Solskjaer, he would have already left.
They supported Solskjaer in the transfer market over the summer and they have not yet succumbed to the temptation to cut their losses.
He clearly enjoys the support of the club’s board and will have time to prove himself, and this victory Tottenham only helped his cause, but there is definitely a pressure that will only grow if there are no results.
