It has been just over 7 weeks for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the caretaker manager for Manchester United and the Norwegian is enjoying a highly successful run so far. United are currently unbeaten in the last 10 games in all competitions since Solskjaer took over the reins, a period where they won 9 of those games. The effects of this fantastic run have slowly started to show.

In the Premier League, United have climbed one place to 5th position and are just 2 points away from the coveted 4th position. They have drawn Chelsea in the F.A. Cup 5th round and the Red Devils will go into the tie with renewed vigour and confidence.



When the Champions League round of 16 revealed that United had been pitted against PSG, the French Champions were overwhelming favourites to go through to the quarterfinals. However, Solskjaer's men will have PSG worried ahead of the tie right now.

While there are many factors which have helped Solskjaer turn around the tide for United, perhaps one of the most important has been the Norwegian's consistency in team selection. Solskjaer knew quite early what his United team would look like and he has moulded the personalities under his command to fit his needs. He has made very little changes to the starting eleven, and after 10 games, seems to have finally zeroed in his best starting eleven. Today, we take a look at the 11 men that make up Solskajer's best team at Manchester United right now.

Formation: 4-3-3 (Attacking)

This was perhaps one of his easier choices, given the candidates for the role. While Sergio Romero is a fantastic keeper, he does fall short of the abilities of De Gea. The Spaniard is the reigning Golden Glove winner but had a horrible start to the season under Mourinho, where he had gathered just 5 clean sheets in 22 games.

Things have improved under the Norwegian and De Gea has managed 3 clean sheets in his 8 appearances under Solskjaer. Having the best goalkeeper in the world protecting your goal can do wonders for a team and Solskjaer has no problem selecting David De Gea in his team.
