The Manchester United caretaker has lead the team to four victories in four matches, and today they will play against Reading in the FA Cup Third Round.

After Manchester United sacked manager Jose Mourinho, interim coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took care of the English Premier League giants.

And he has led the Red Devils to four victories in four matches so far.

“It depends on how you look at it but the first three maybe was the honeymoon if you like and it was three games you expect to win – you’re at home for two of them,” he spoke to the team’s official website about their run so far.

“Then you go up there, it’s a difficult place to go. I thought in the second half we played some fantastic stuff.”

“All in all, it was a first clean sheet and to come away from there with three points [was] brilliant but I must say I’ve enjoyed the home games more,” he commented.

“Yes, definitely. That was one of the things I was thinking about before the game – this might be a tough one or it will be a tough one and you’ll get to learn how they react if we make the first mistake or they score the first goal.”

“I felt we were a bit safer in the way we played, maybe because we were away from home. But in the second half, I thought you could see the pace, the power, the counter-attacking, the forward-thinking again and we were solid at the back,” he explained after United won its fourth consecutive match against Newcastle United.
