Young playmaker included and could feature for Man United vs Huddersfield

Young playmaker included and could feature for Man United vs Huddersfield

The first Old Trafford goal of the Solskjaer era came after 28 minutes after a Pogba free-kick had deflected off Philip Billing and behind for a corner.

Manchester United's 3-1 win over Huddersfield makes it 2 in a row for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Pogba, who lost his place in the side towards the end of Jose Mourinho's tenure, was playing with energy and drive once again on Boxing Day.

While the upturn in form under Solksjaer is heartening to fans of Manchester United, it is worth noting that his first two fixtures have comes against sides mired in their own relegation dogfights.

"That's the Paul I know, that's the Paul I've known since he was in the reserves and the youth team", Solskjaer told a news conference.

"He's always been a happy boy and always had a big smile on his face".

But, do United fans not deserve a happy Christmas?

Whereas Solskjær thrived on the atmosphere at United's home, some of the club's players have struggled with the pressure. He's a Man United boy through and through.

This was not as slick a performance as United produced at Cardiff, but they largely kept Huddersfield under control and certainly played the majority of the match on the front foot.

"It was extra special of course", said Solskjaer of his return as manager to Old Trafford. "I picked a team I thought could win the game and I trusted the players.

He's a Manchester United boy through and through and knows what it means to play for the club".

I don't like that managers get sacked but especially if we play the teams soon after this happened, like (Southampton) as well.

"But it's humbling and made me really proud". We have played against a world-class side, we have seen why Paul (Pogba) is a World Cup victor, two world-class strikes, and this is why we lost this game.

"There was an immediate bounce and impact from Ole, however it was only Cardiff and we need to see if they can do it over six months", Neville said on his podcast, according to SkySports.

Solskjær takes charge of his first United game at Old Trafford on Boxing Day, something it looks as if he still can not quite believe is happening.
