Mason Greenwood who was drafted into the position was withdrawn to the flanks and made more impact coming from the wings.

The 19-year-old scored the winner ten minutes from time to give United their second win in three matches.

Solskjaer's role for Ronaldo at Man United

Speaking after the match Solskjaer admitted that Ronaldo would solve their problems in their attack after he was asked where the 36-year-old would play in the front three.

Solskjaer told Sky Sports:

"He will definitely play in the attack, with two or three up front, but I want him in the box., I want him scoring goals"

Ronaldo surprisingly told Juventus he did not want to play for them despite making a second-half appearance for Juventus during their 1-1 draw with Udinese, Sky Sports.

Solskjaer then was asked how the deal for his former teammate came about as he added:

"That's football for you, we have been watching Cristiano, we never thought he was going to leave Juventus this season, when he did he had to speak to him."

Pogba's opinion about Ronaldo's inclusion to Man United

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Paul Pogba believes Man United's season will improve following the signing of Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo from Juventus, Manchester Evening News.

The Fench midfielder played all 90 minutes in the Red devils' controversial 1-0 win over Wolves at the Molineux after he seemed to had fouled Rueben Neves in the build to the goal.

And the Frenchman believes the Red Devils will become a better side if the five-time Ballon d'Or winner joins the rest of the squad.
