Manchester United have seen a mid-season revival post the sacking of Jose Mourinho as they make it 3 impressive wins in 3.
The crowd at Old Trafford, who have seen their side play a lackluster and uninspired style of football at times over the last few seasons, were treated to adventurous and free-flowing football over the festive period.
Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s appointment as the interim manager has shown promise so far as the players have enjoyed their newfound freedom on the football pitch in the last 3 games.
Paul Pogba made the headlines once again but another player that saw himself back in the lineup was Eric Bailly. The Ivorian who fell behind Smalling, Jones and Lindelof under Mourinho, was reinstated in the defence against the Cherries and he made sure he stood out.
Although his performance was eventually overshadowed by his two-footed tackle that had him sent off, the confidence pumped into him by his new manager was on full display as the centre-back was seen bringing out his tekkers against Bournemouth.
Manchester United fans were treated to some audacious football action in the first half as Bailly pulled off a volleyed back-heel flick pass during a moment in the game.
