MANCHESTER (Dagbladet): Ole Gunnar Solskjær (45) would win against Burnley will be the first Premier League manager to win his first seven league games.

He topped the statistics together with Carlo Ancelotti (Chelsea) and Pep Guardiola (Manchester City) before tonight's match. The Norwegian had already Manchester United-record with eight consecutive victories in all tournaments.


But Burnley took a sjokkledelse early in the second half against the game's time, while United struggled to outwit a good Tom Heaton in the Burnley goal.

the Combination of this was Solskjærs the first downturn that the United manager.

Even though the ending was positive.

Nine minutes before the end so it namely out that Solskjær was to go on his first loss when Chris Wood butted into 0-2.

But then beat the United suddenly back in a dramatic finale.

About not Solskjær has been compared enough with sir Alex Ferguson before, so it looks like Solskjær has knabbet even a property of the tutor: Now able to save the matches in the sluttminuttene also.

There was a breeze of "Fergie-time" over Old Trafford when the clock was ticking ever faster towards the sun. And so it happened. We are baptized it is now (non-lexmark enough) to "Solskjær-time".

Pogba reduced from krittmerket after 87 minutes, before Victor Lindelof put into utlikningen in overtime. Such a typical United goal as it can be in overtime. Klabb, babb and lots of will.

despite a good rescue operation thought most of the red should take a comfortable victory after the glorious period during the 45-year-old. Instead it ended with a surprising poengtap.

- We react well in the day, but we did not play good enough in the start of the battle. We must learn from the mistakes our. We're going to start the next game different. We lost, but we lost two points we could have had today, " says Paul Pogba to american TV.

Back to the start of the match. It could put the light out for Manchester United early.

Marcus Rashford got a huge opportunity to give the home team the lead in the first place, after Romelu Lukaku, once again, had taken the role of a waitress. Rashford got the ball served on a silver platter from a good position, but did not between the rods.

Rashford also got clear instructions of Ole Gunnar Solskjær along the way in the fight, and it was apparent that the licence was not completely satisfied with his 21-year-old student. Twice travelled 45-year-old from the bench to provide clear information to the players.

Even though Manchester United were leading the team in the first place, they found not the way to into the net. Paul Pogba thought he had sent home to heaven just before the rest, but the frenchman was offside when the pass from Juan Mata came.

Burnley was overraskelseslaget in the Premier League last season, with manager Sean Dyche led them to an impressive sjuendeplass. This season, however the away team at times struggled immensely in the league, despite the fact that the team had not lost in the last four seriekampene before the trip to Old Trafford.

Burnley had on his side some halvsjanser before the break, but threatened never David de Gea in the United goal, the latter back after sitting out in the FA cup against Arsenal last.

At least not before the rest.


Andreas Pereira got a rare start by Solskjær, who hailed the 23-year-old before the fight. And it was precisely he who tabbet out when Burnley took a sjokkledelse.

Andreas Pereira lost the ball high into the path of Jack Cork, who served the tip Ashley Barnes. Kraftspissen thanks and bowed, and hammered the ball in nettaket over de Gea. For the first time during Solskjærs management ended up United below.

Solskjær clapped Pereira on the head when he left the field after 20 minutes of the second half, to be replaced by Jesse Lingard. Alexis Sánchez was also thrown on in the hope to save the match.

the Home team controlled the match, but either delivered players with weak endings, or so rescued Heaton it came on goal. Instead came suddenly 0-2.

A post from the left landed on the head of Chris Wood, who thanked for the trust of stange into away other goals. the

the Shock was a fact.

United pressure, however, and got the opportunity to turn back when Jesse Lingard went down in the box three minutes before the end. Pogba tiptoed as usual in advance, but was the safety even from krittmerket.

And then came the utlikningen in overtime at the Swedish Victor Lindelof, who poked a return. Despite the stunning final sprint, couldn't United to find the way to the crucial date.

Focus on the next match

Manchester United have some knalltøffe battles ahead on all fronts, with Chelsea in the FA cup and PSG in the Champions League. In addition, Liverpool and Manchester City visit Old Trafford in the space of three weeks towards the end of February.

"We have some really big matches ahead of us: the fifth round of the FA cup, PSG in the Champions League and numerous Premier League games, but we're not going to look too far ahead. It is exciting to do it, but for this club it's always about the next game, so believe me when I say that our focus is completely on Burnley", type Solskjær in the fixture.

I wonder if he is so satisfied with what was delivered at Old Trafford tonight.

P. S. Before the start of the game were the victims of the Munich ulykka honored outside the stadium, while it was held one minute of silence for the missing Cardiff player Emiliano Sala at Old Trafford.

- Solskjær was very quiet. Very, very quiet
