KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Solskjaer told the club's fanbase that his main goal is to see United play a more expansive brand of football after his debut ended in the crushing 5-1 demolition of Cardiff City.

The Red Devils played attacking football all throughout the game keeping in line to what Ole Solksjaer had said before the game.

"They've not said anything about that", he said when asked whether the players had described playing with a handbrake on under Mourinho, "but we spoke today in the team meeting about how, when we get one, we want to get two".

"We want to look at this game". That's just the nature of this team, this club, that you always go and attack.

"For sure we have to play better than in the first half (against Southampton)".

While there will be a strong temptation for the caretaker boss to stick with the same side that hammered Cardiff at the weekend, given the fixture congestion, a few changes are likely for Manchester United.

The change in personnel did not initially help United win back control of the match, as Town continued to press for a leveller and almost found it through Depoitre's delicate flick towards the bottom corner, which De Gea brilliantly kept out to his right.

Chris Smalling and Marcos Rojo continue to be absent for Manchester United with injuries.

Victor Lindelof and Phil Jones were imperious and with Chris Smalling still sidelined, Solskjaer will more than likely reprise that central defensive duo again against the Terriers.

United have managed to win just five of 12 matches at Old Trafford in all competitions so far in this disappointing campaign, with the pressure appearing to be too much for players at times.

Paul Pogba scored twice and Matic bagged the other as United romped past the Terriers.

"We have to come back to our reasonable performances which we have shown".

Nemanja Matic broke the deadlock in the 28th minute to get Manchester United off to a good start in the first home fixture under the former Norwegian striker.
