Marco Rose is a shock name linked with a move to Manchester United

Manchester United were 5-1 winners against Cardiff City in Solskjaer's first game in charge of the 20-time English champions.

The Red Devils are looking to close the gap on fifth placed Arsenal back down to three points following the Gunners' win on New Year's Day.

Paul Pogba scored twice in a 4-1 victory over Bournemouth at Old Trafford in their final game of 2018.

The only real negative so far for Solskjaer has been the failure to keep a clean sheet, with United having conceded 32 goals already this season, the most of the top 11 in the Premier League table and five more than 15th-placed Newcastle.

The company said on Wednesday it had produced 61,394 Model 3s and delivered almost 1,000 vehicles per day in the fourth quarter. The electric-car maker's shares fell by 9.3 percent, to 301.87, in early trading.

Solskjaer was flown in from the Norwegian Eliteserien midway through last month to take up the position at Man Utd until the end of the season and help steady the stoic ship that had sailed through murky waters under Mourinho. "It is important not to get too low or too high, we have to try to stay level-headed", Lascelles said ahead of the game against Manchester United - live on Sky Sports.

Caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his players will fly to Dubai on Saturday evening after the third round tie at Old Trafford to prepare for the trip to Wembley to face Tottenham on January 13.

"It promises to be an electric atmosphere at St James's Park, but I expect the visitors to maintain their renaissance under Solskjaer and take all three points".
