Solskjaer claims 'winning is a habit' following 4-0 victory




 

Manchester United came out all guns blazing, thumping Chelsea 4-0 in a season-opener that will stay etched in the minds of many.

To the eye, such complete performance indicates that the Red Devils are exactly where they need to be already - aggressive offensively, disciplined in the back and feeding off of Paul Pogba's enchanting wizardry to seal games off. Then again, it's only a positive result in the first match of a long, demanding season - Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's first full season at the helm, to be exact. But that doesn't take away from the fact that he comprehends the PL's environment better than most, though.

From Pogba, to Marcus Rashford, to Anthony Martial, Sunday's big stage at Old Trafford was good to the home side, specifically to debutant Daniel James, 21, who scored in the 81st minute after coming on as a substitute. "It was a big moment for him," the Norwegian manager said about the Englishmen's impressive cameo. "He has had a tough summer and some ups and downs in life so I am happy for his debut goal."

Manchester United are on the right path: winning in convincing manner at home, against one of their fiercest rivals. But it's not new news at Old Trafford, where winning is second nature and expectations are sky-high.

If you don't think that's the case, just ask Solskjaer.
