Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made a dream start to his role as Manchester United caretaker boss with a stunning 5-1 win against Cardiff City.
The Norwegian had just two days of training with the squad following his shock appointment but United’s performance was their best of the season so far.
Marcus Rashford put United ahead after just three minutes thanks to a stunning free-kick and Ander Herrera doubled their lead with a deflected strike from 25 yards.
Anthony Martial scored the pick of the bunch after a fine team move and Jesse Lingard scored from the penalty spot to make it four.

Performances like this have been few and far between since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement in 2013 and the legendary Scot marked his final game at the club with a 5-5 draw against West Brom.
Astonishingly, that was the last time before today that United had scored five in a Premier League match but Lingard’s second goal meant Solskjaer becomes just the second United boss to record a five-goal victory.
Pogba, who fell out with Mourinho and was an unused sub in his final match as United boss, recorded three assists against Cardiff.
United face Huddersfield at home on Boxing Day before hosting Bournemouth in their final fixture of 2018.
