Stats show how Solskjaer has turned Man Utd around after 'boring' Mourinho with more goals, clean sheets and better win rate
Languishing miles adrift of the top four, Old Trafford fans were growing increasingly frustrated by the "boring" style of play.
Ever since, it's been like watching a club reborn, as United have stormed to win after win – most recently enjoying a 3-0 thumping of Fulham.
And the stats not only make for dreadful viewing for Mourinho, but incredible for Solskjaer.
Through nine Premier League games under the Norwegian, United are averaging a sky-high 2.56 goals per game, compared to just 1.71 under Jose.
In fact, despite playing little over half as many games as Mourinho, Solskjaer has earned just ONE point fewer with 25 already.
Part of the caretaker boss' success has come down to not only knowing what his best XI is, but allowing them to play with freedom.
Anthony Martial – fresh from his wondergoal against Fulham – as well as Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford have been in tremendous form under Solskjaer.
The "baby-faced assassin" has implemented an attacking style and reaped the rewards, with the club now boasting 60 per cent possession per game, versus 53 under Mourinho.
With more of the ball, United have been able to take more shots, averaging over 16 per game, compared to under 13 earlier this season.
But first and foremost it has been the win-rate that's seen United shoot up the table.
The Red Devils have won 89 per cent of their Premier League matches under Solskjaer – and remain undefeated.
Mourinho meanwhile could only muster a paltry win ratio of 41 per cent.
United face the daunting prospect of hosting Liverpool in their next league game on February 23.
It was the loss away to the Reds in December that spelled the end of Mourinho's term.
But Solskjaer can at least go into the game with absolutely no pressure on his shoulders after his miraculous turnaround of the club.
