The fans of Manchester United could not have hoped for a better start to life under new manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, with their favorites scoring eight goals in their two recent wins. Paul Pogba is happy to be back on the pitch after his omission by Mourinho and has repaid his new manager with a brace in the last game. The Cherries were trashed in midweek by Tottenham and their early season Euro qualification dream is gone after a run of just 2 wins since the beginning of November. They are still safe from relegation battle though, having 14 points more than 18th placed Burnley.
