“Magic” Man United have their “Mojo, Spark and X-Factor” back, says Solskjaer, after his side NINE scored past Southampton to level on points with City at the top of the Premier League table
Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was understandably delighted with his side’s 9-0 win against Southampton and insisted that they find their “mojo, spark and X-factor” after a “magical” performance.
Solskjaer saw his side bounce back from their home defeat to Sheffield United last week as they took full advantage of Alexandre Jankewitz’s second-minute layoff to beat up their guests on Tuesday.
Solskjaer said to BT Sport with relief: “We have been waiting for you [players] Show the magic and tonight was a night to enjoy.

“Trust is a thought, but it was about the mojo and the spark, the X factor. We didn’t have too many to sit in and enjoy the football.
“In close or open games you have to take your risks. You never know what could be the deciding factor.
“We know – better than anyone – what the goal difference can mean for you because we lost the league because of the goal difference.”
Solskjaer praised striker Mason Greenwood when United won by more than one goal in nine Premier League games for the first time.
