Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Manchester United have found their blueprint for their season after blitzing Chelsea 4-0 in their Premier league opener.
The Red Devils played much of the game on the counter with only 43 percent of ball possession, but crucially, Marcus Rashford (two), Anthony Martial and new signing Daniel James scored with the team’s five shots on target.
Solskjaer explains: “This is a work in progress and the lads have been excellent from 1 July, before then actually because they were fit enough for them to implement what we wanted them to.
“We know it’s just the start and there are relationships to be worked on.
“The more we understand each other and get to play with each other and show that we’re a team, it’s going to improve.”
The Norwegian also praised his debutants, with winger James coming off the bench to join defenders Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka on the Old Trafford pitch.
Solskjaer adds: “Of course, [with] Aaron and Harry, we’ve kept a clean sheet, they’ve come into the team and squad and they’ve lifted everyone, they’ve challenged the other boys because there is competition for places now.
“I’m sure [Daniel James] will remember that for his whole life. He’s had a tough summer with his personal life as well and to start his career like this, I’m so pleased for him.”
