EPL – Paul Pogba scored twice in the Norwegian’s first home game in charge as Huddersfield were seen off.
In recent months, United have struggled to put away the likes of Crystal Palace and Southampton, unable to convert territorial and possessional dominance into goals. Admittedly, there was a respite against 10-man Fulham but that was insufficient evidence that Mourinho could turn things around.
Missing from those United performances was the belief that they could go out and hammer teams, something that was commonplace in Solskjaer’s days as a player here but sadly lacking of late.
It was rare under Mourinho to see so many United players ahead of the ball as they had here. They often had both full-backs, Luke Shaw and Diogo Dalot, as well as Juan Mata, Jesse Lingard, Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford all as options for a forward pass.
The line of three behind the striker – Mata, Lingard and Pogba, interchanged quite a bit and left an enthusiastic but ordinary Huddersfield backline unsure about who to mark.
It was exactly what you’d want as a United fan. The Old Trafford faithful have come to games in recent months not expecting much and just hoping that Mourinho would somehow get his team over the line.
