Caretaker manager sees his side blow away Cardiff City 5-1 in his first match in charge
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer began his time in charge of Manchester United with a comprehensive 5-1 win at Cardiff City.
Marcus Rashford gave United a great start, striking a swerving free-kick past Neil Etheridge after just three minutes.
United doubled their lead through Ander Herrera’s deflected 25-metre shot.
Victor Camarasa pulled a goal back through a 38th-minute penalty after Rashford had handballed.
But Anthony Martial restored United’s two-goal lead four minutes before the break after a wonderful passing move.
Jesse Lingard made it 4-1 from the spot on 57 minutes and got another in the last minute.
After scoring five goals in a Premier League fixture for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson’s final match in charge in May 2013, Man Utd are sixth on 29 points.
