Solskjær secures vital victory for United; City, the setbacks of Liverpool

| Today Headlines | Local News

After all these doubts about his future at Manchester United, Ole Gunnar Solskjær achieved what Pep Guardiola and Jürgen Klopp could not do on Saturday: win in the Premier League.

United just needed to face a Tottenham side devoid of any offensive ingenuity that saw Cristiano Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani – with a combined age of 70 – both score before Marcus Rashford scored.

After collecting one point in four games, the 3-0 win in north London will give Solskjær some breathing space, although United are still eight points away from first place.

Rather than Solskjær feeling the heat – United fans were back chanting “Ole’s at the wheel” – Tottenham supporters hooted their team and chanted to manager Nuno Espirito Santo: “You don’t know what you’re doing.”

Chelsea were able to take their lead to the top of the Premier League to three points with a 3-0 win at Newcastle.

Liverpool, second to Klopp, lost a two-goal lead to draw Brighton 2-2 at home.

Defending champions Manchester City are two points further after Guardiola’s 200th league game in charge of the club ended in a 2-0 home loss to Crystal Palace.

Arsenal’s revival continued with a 2-0 victory at Leicester, putting the North London club behind United on goal difference in sixth place.
