United used the London trip to bring their woeful run of form to a halt in a match that saw Cristiano Ronaldo score and assist.

The result was a perfect response to the Red Devils' worrying form that saw them suffer a 5-0 loss against rivals Liverpool last weekend.

Ronaldo was named the man of the match following his spectacular goal and brilliant play in the build-up to Edinson Cavani's effort in the second period of the match.

However, Solskjaer contends McTominay was his side's standout player, claiming the Scot was unplayable.

When asked about McTominay’s performance Solskjaer replied:

"Man of the match for me, by a mile"
"That’s the Scott we’ve seen a few times before. He’s had his injury, he’s had his operation this season, but today I thought he was absolutely brilliant," he addded.

Solskjaer also heaped praise on Cavani who he drafted upfront alongside Ronaldo.

United's victory catapulted them to fifth on the log with 17 points and will be looking to build on the momentum when they take on Atalanta in the second leg of their Champions League.

After the Italy trip, the Old Trafford side will take on rivals Man City in their next domestic outing.

Martial's wife Melanie slams Solskjaer for benching her husband again

Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Melanie, the wife of Manchester United striker Anthony Martial, has taken Ole Gunnar Sokskjaer to the cleaners for benching her husband yet again in the Premier League.

The Red Devils who were thoroughly beaten 5-0 at home by Liverpool put behind their poor performance of last weekend to defeat Tottenham 3-0 on Saturday, October 30.

And yet again, Martial was not named in the matchday squad, with strikers Cristiano Ronaldo, Edinson Cavani, and Marcus Rashford all finding the back of the net at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The last time Martial featured for the club was earlier this month when he was on the score sheet against Everton.

And since then, the Frenchman has been overlooked but the United manager earlier claimed he was on the verge of returning.

Now his wife, Melanie, claims the former Monaco man has been fit and available for selection as against report that he is injured.
