Cardiff 1-5 Manchester United

A more revitalized Manchester United thrashed Cardiff City 5-1 in the first game of the interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. 

Manchester United were totally dominant with nearly 75% possession scoring three goals before the break.

Marcus Rashford gave the visitors the lead from a sublime free-kick and Ander Herrera doubled their lead with a long-range strike making it 2-0 before half an hour.

Cardiff got one back through a penalty from Victor Camarasa but Anthony Martial restored United lead from a stunning pass before the break.

Jesse Lingard scored United 4th goal from penalty spot after he was brought down by Sol Bamba and he added a late fifth when he was played in by Paul Pogba.

According to BBC sports “It is the first time United have scored five goals in a Premier League game since legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson’s last game in charge – a 5-5 draw with West Brom in May 2013.”
