Man Utd score five for first time since Sir Alex Ferguson's final game

Jesse Lingard scored twice as United stormed to a 5-1 win over Cardiff in the first match in life after Jose Mourinho.

Solskjaer promised to bring attacking football back to Old Trafford and he absolutely delivered in his opening attempt.

Marcus Rashford, Ander Herrera and Anthony Martial also scored as a completely different-looking United ripped the Bluebirds to shreds in South Wales.

The last time Man United scored five goals was in May 2013, when they were involved in the thrilling 5-5 draw with West Brom on the final day of the season.

Since then, Red Devils fans have been lumbered with tedious, turgid play under David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and most-recently Mourinho.


But Wayne Rooney said he believed Solskjaer was the man to bring the passion back to Old Trafford.

And it would appear the former United captain was spot on as the Red Devils roared from the first to last whistle in Wales.

Incredibly, since United last scored five times in a single game, noisy neighbours City had managed the feat on 21 occasions.

The task Solskjaer had was not meant to be easy, but based on today's performance, they've found a blueprint for success once more.
