Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sets new Premier League record despite Manchester United draw vs Burnley

Posted by

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has apparently made the best start of any Premier League manager ever after a run of six wins and a draw from his first seven league matches in charge of Manchester United.

The Norwegian tactician has worked wonders at Old Trafford since replacing Jose Mourinho in December, though his fine run of eight consecutive wins in all competitions came to an end tonight with a 2-2 draw against Burnley.

Solskjaer will be disappointed not to have won tonight against a team Man Utd should really be beating quite comfortably, though the draw will almost feel like a win given that they scored twice to secure a late comeback from 2-0 down.

And the result still means United’s interim manager has made Premier League history, eclipsing the superb starts made by Pep Guardiola at Manchester City and Carlo Ancelotti at Chelsea, who won their first six games but then lost the seventh.

Tonight will have been a bit of a wake-up call, but this impressive record surely still shows Solskjaer has to be a strong contender to get the Red Devils job permanently in the summer?
