Jose Mourinho eat your heart out.
It was clear to see the immediate impact that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has had on Man United just 45 minutes into the clash with Cardiff.
The Red Devils seem to have rediscovered their mojo just days after Mourinho was given his marching orders and replaced by the popular Norwegian.
The stark shift in footballing philosophy from the previous regime was highlighted in Anthony Martial’s first-half strike.
The Frenchman finished off what was a brilliant free flowing team move that was more the sort of goal we’ve become used to seeing in the blue half of Manchester.
The 23-year-old marked his eighth Premier League start of the campaign by netting his eighth goal and what will surely be the first of many under Solskjaer.
The expertly worked goal was a throwback to the style of football that United so often used to take pride in playing under Sir Alex Ferguson.
Under Mourinho, Martial often cut a frustrated figure and looked void of confidence, a stark contrast to the aura he was giving off against Cardiff.
The Frenchman’s predatory extincts kicked in for his goal as he chased up his original pass and was on hand to finish in devastating fashion.
Pogba’s involvement in the goal will also no doubt please United fans who were hoping to see a reaction after the Frenchman’s public falling out with the previous manager.
Man United playing tiki-taka? What a time to be alive.
- Dele Alli is the man for the big occasion when the doubters start circling
- Adrien Rabiot’s immature arrogance is a far departure from the Barcelona midfielders of old
- Callum Wilson and Chelsea are a match made in heaven
