Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says they 'can win every game'

Hopefully it is not a bad reaction.

Indeed, imagine if Manchester United had not had a player sent off against them in a Premier League match since January 2014...

"I'm here to work with the ones I've got, they've all performed and as long as they perform they should get a chance but that's my job to improve players and individuals", he said.

Solksjaer will have work to do in the coming week to ensure the same problems do not occur in United's next game, and biggest test so far under the Norwegian, against Tottenham Hotspur.

In truth, though, Chong's performance showed that he's probably not quite ready for first-team football just yet.

I think maybe when he gets another few games under his belt, he would have finished a little bit earlier on in the first half.

Spurs are one of the contenders for the Premier League crown this season, but we seem to have a swagger on the pitch now.

He took up the position after being given permission by Molde, although the club in his native Norway stressed they were only "lending" Solskjaer to United, indicating they expected him to return to his role as manager. "But we made nine changes, so I made it hard for the boys because they hadn't played together too much but we got the goals and managed to get through". We're not happy talking about fifth, sixth or fourth in a year or two. It far from a flawless performance and he will be annoyed to have only scored one goal, but his ability to take one of the two good chances he had was ultimately the difference between the two side. He came on after 62 minutes to replace Juan Mata and overall he did well. "In a year or two the club needs to move on and move up the table".

Towards the end, as Marcus Rashford sprinted round the Reading goalkeeper, overran the ball and then comically fell over, the home crowd were singing "Ole; Ole, Ole, Ole" in homage to caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Andy Yiadom was denied by Romero at his near post as United continued to struggle, but a stray pass from John Swift proved costly in first-half injury-time, with Lukaku rounding Jaakkola to make it 2-0 from Sanchez's throughball.
