Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will feel validated following his side’s win over Wolves and for more than just one reason.
The legendary Norwegian oversaw his side secure a crucial and dramatic victory as they climbed to second in the Premier League table.
United and Solskjaer have had their fair share of critics this season but it’s safe to say those critics have been a little quieter than usual of late.
The former Molde man has managed to turn around their poor early season form with his players putting together a successful and respectable run of matches since.
Suddenly now the talk is about a possible title challenge from the Red Devils and although Solskjaer is hesitant to get involved in such talk, the statistics certainly support him.
#MUFC have now taken more points than any other team in the Premier League since the end of January 2020. Real progress.

It’s no coincidence that Bruno Fernandes also arrived towards the end of January as he has been the catalyst for the club’s fortunes.
Manchester United have been a different beast entirely with the Portuguese magician in it and he will be crucial to any future successes.
Solskjaer will now be aiming for more than just collecting points but also collecting the right points against the right teams if silverware is to be won.
