Romelu Lukaku heaps praise on Solskjaer after Newcastle win

Manchester United are now four for four under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Red Devils are going from strength-to-strength under their new boss, and what a difference a week or two makes, eh?

The Baby Faced Assassin has United playing the way that they should, and to think that the club have amassed twelve points under their new manager just makes you wonder how fed up these players were with life under Jose Mourinho.

Fourteen goals have been scored over the last four outings, with the strikers massively benefitting from working under arguably the best super-sub in Premier League history.

It seems as though Romelu Lukaku has slowly taken up that mantle, having scored two quick-fire goals in his two appearances off the bench. Following the match, the super Belgian heaped the praise on Solskjaer, while also adding that he, and the other forwards, are learning loads from their new boss.

“It is totally different,” Lukaku said per Goal. “Marcus and I, and Anthony [Martial] are learning a lot from him especially on the offensive side.”

“He is just trying to make us better and win games. So far so good, and we need to keep going.”

At this elite level, it’s all down to having a positive attitude and mindset. Solskjaer is getting the best out of players that have always had world-class potential.

Me, like so many others, were fooled into thinking that this isn’t a good squad, when in fact, we all know how good some of these guys are, and they are starting to show it.

Already, Lukaku is beginning to look like the player he was last term, while I don’t think I’ve ever seen Rashford look as consistently brilliant as he has over this short stint.

Now, the question is, how long do we give it before making Solskjaer the manager permanently? I know United are in no rush, but the players are loving life under him right now. If they cannot get Mauricio Pochettino, Ole would be my second choice.
