Bigger tests lie ahead for Solskjaer, however, who has inherited a challenging group of players that Jose Mourinho certainly seemed to struggle with on more than one occasion.

Martial is undoubtedly among those, and it seems that the France international has already got on the wrong side of Solskjaer to an extent.

Having arrived back late from Christmas in Paris, Solskjaer was forced to reprimand the player, according to the Daily Mail.
