Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may have been going through a disappointing set of results since he was appointed on a permanent basis as the replacement for Jose Mourinho, but a lot of former United names have been holding the Norwegian in very high regard already. One of those individuals happen to be former Swedish winger Jesper Blomqvist, who claims that the joy of seeing Manchester United play in an attacking with is certainly back for good. Under Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho, there was a lot of criticism about Manchester United playing a defensive style that was considered as boring – after having been used to the days under Sir Alex Ferguson.

After being brought in as the caretaker manager following the exit of Mourinho,Solskjaer was able to work his magic instantly. A number of players like Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku started displaying world-class form that was simply not to be seen under Mourinho. As a result, results started flowing and the United were getting a lot of goals. Even though the positive results have dried up since the appointment of Solskjaer on a permanent basis,Blomqvist says that it is at least a delight to feel that United are sticking with their DNA.Blomqvist played for United for three years at the turn of the century.

Spain international Ander Herrera has indicated that Manchester United are not thinking about the top four yet despite accumulating four straight Premier League wins on the bounce. The Red Devils appeared to be distancing themselves from the top four during the midway stage of December but the club’s decision to part ways with Jose Mourinho has paid dividends with them going on a four-match winning streak.

Speaking to Press Association, Herrera highlighted the improvement made in terms of the points to the top four while insisting that the team are not looking too far into the future, he said: “When I saw we were maybe 12 points behind, I decided not to think about it, go game-by-game and that’s what we did. That’s what I did at least, and things are going well, so I don’t want to change. I am not going to think about that.
