Manchester United made it two wins from two under interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with a 3-1 victory over Huddersfield.

United ran amok at Solskjaer's former club Cardiff, scoring five goals in a Premier League match for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in May 2013 as they left the Welsh capital buoyed by a 5-1 win.

They gave United a comfort they had seldom had in games this season and if you can't bring an 18-year-old on when you're 3-0 up at home as Solskjaer did with attacking midfielder Angel Gomes, when can you?

All of a sudden Solskjaer is 100 times better than Jose Mourinho as a manager? That's tradition, that's history and that's how we play.

He might be vastly more experienced and medal-strewn than David Moyes and a more entertainingly volatile character than Louis van Gaal, but all three's Manchester United experience amounted to a similar sort of failure.

"Let's see if I get used to it".

"They're the best fans in the world", he told Sky Sports before the match.

"I went up and there were a few journalists gathered around", Devaney informed the Caught Offside podcast.

"So why should we stop them?"

Huddersfield boss David Wagner said: "I think a big reason why we lost today was because we were not clinical enough".

Sir Alex Ferguson, Wayne Rooney and Ryan Giggs were among the star names in attendance and almost saw Huddersfield land the first blow as United's shaky backline was unsteadied by a long throw as Terence Kongolo fired over.

The forward has been impressive for Bournemouth ever since they gained promotion to the Premier League, and could be a cheap signing in the winter window.

"You know me in social situations - shameless and straight to the point - so I stuck out my hand and I said, 'Ole, I'm delighted to meet you'".

Given the performance that the attacking trio of Jesse Lingard, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial put on show against Cardiff, it is highly improbable that Solskjaer would be looking to break that partnership on Wednesday.

He added: "I'm spending time with the players of course, and trying to get as much time with each individual as possible".
