How the Premier League table looks since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took Manchester United job

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s tenure at Manchester United has already been through its fair share of highs and lows.

The Reds’ boss has endured a healthy chunk of criticism after an underwhelming finish to the season, as United suffered eight defeats in their final 12 games in all competitions and failed to finish in the Premier League’s top four.

That failure to qualify for next season’s Champions League could be damaging, though Solskjaer has been at pains to point out that United were sixth — and just a point above seventh-placed Wolves — when he took over from Jose Mourinho.

United had picked up 26 points in the first 17 games of the season under Mourinho. That means Solskjaer has taken 40 points from the subsequent 21 games.

And in a Premier League table of results since December 19th — when Solskjaer was first handed the job on an interim basis — United lie comfortably in third place.

A run of 12 Premier League games undefeated boosted United after Solskjaer’s initial appointment and despite the late-season slump, they average almost two points per game under the Norwegian.

They are five points ahead of Arsenal, six ahead of Chelsea in that time, despite those sides finishing ahead of United in the final 38-game table. United have also picked up eight more points than Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham since Solskjaer’s appointment on December 19th.

The table sees Man City and Liverpool well clear of the rest, with Fulham, Brighton and Huddersfield having picked up the fewest points.
