Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side have only managed to win three of their 11 games in the Premier League so far this term.

Goals from Andreas Pereira, Marcus Rashford and a Davy Propper own goal earned United the points at Old Trafford, their fifth win in six games in all competitions. Mahmoud Trezeguet scored a stoppage-time consolation for the visitors. Solskjaer claimed, as quoted by the Evening Standard: "I think it's our best performance of the season". "Of course you can go back to Chelsea but today I thought the reaction after they scored was fantastic. But [it was] exhilarating and entertaining and great to see the boys enjoy themselves". The Norwegian alluded to this, adding: "These six weeks since the global break when we started against Liverpool we've had five wins and a defeat, after the Liverpool game".

"Anthony Martial did not get a goal but he was outstanding".

"Of course the Bournemouth game was disappointing but we've had loads of answers to what we're trying to do and if we don't get confidence from this, I don't know what to tell them".

United supporters were still cheering that impressive start when they were handed double cause for celebration from a deep free-kick that Fred floated into the Brighton area.

However, a chance encounter with a charming (and gorgeous) stranger Tom ( Henry Golding ), begins to shift her perspective slowly. It's fantastic to consider that Yeoh, such a smooth comic presence here, was known early in her career purely as an action hero.


Solskjaer's side responded with a 3-0 victory against Partizan Belgrade in the Europa League on Thursday evening.

United's response was swift and clinical, however, with the Reds restoring their two-goal cushion just two minutes later. He brushed off Shane Duffy and rounded Ryan before pulling back for Rashford to convert. He also praised the performance of Daniel James, who he worked with at Swansea last season.

"He went over on his ankle and it looked like a painful one", said Solskjaer.

"They were the better team, deserved to win".
