Cardiff City vs Manchester United highlights: Manchester United registered an emphatic 5-1 victory over Cardiff City.
Manchester United began their life under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in emphatic fashion with a 5-1 win over Cardiff City.
Marcus Rashford opened the goalscoring in the 4th minute of the game, and Ander Herrera made it 2-0. Anthony Martial restored the two-goal cushion towards the end of the half with a perfect team-goal, while Jesse Lingard scored a brace in the second half to finish a perfect night for Manchester United.
This is the first time when Manchester United scored five goals in a Premier League game since Sir Alex Ferguson’s last game in-charge of the club.
The side is now 8 points behind the top 4 position after Chelsea faced a stunning loss to Leicester City earlier today.
Here’s how fans reacted to the win:
That’s a proper Manchester United performance. Dominating for the 90minutes, free flowing attacking football, playing with no fear. Long may it continue. #mufc

Victor Nilsson Lindelöf carrying the ball 50 metres into space and playing Rashford in. Superb. #mufc

Moreso than the scoring five goals, it’s the constantly trying to score more goals for the entire game (even after you’ve taken all your available forwards off for a rest) – struggling to remember the last time that happened

Welcome back Manchester United.
Oh, how I have missed you!
Yes, it was only Cardiff and much bigger tests to come but what a joy to see us play with pace and belief.

If the Premier League had started on the day that Ole Gunnar Solskjær took over at Old Trafford, @ManUtd would be top. 🥴

In 90 mins Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (the learner) has put the smiles on UTD fans faces after it took 5 years and 3 experienced managers to remove them.
You can have the experience, the ability and the know how but give me someone who gives the players confidence any day.

Solskjaer applauding the fans and punching the air. Pogba gives his shirt to a fan. Positivity has well and truly returned to United. Remarkable #mufc managerial debut.
