Premier League: Where does Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United stand compared to Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool- Man United head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took charge of his 100th Premier League match when the Red Devils took the field against Wolves on Sunday. They managed to record a narrow 1-0 victory at the Molineux as Mason Greenwood hit a sublime shot from a tight angle to pocket three points for his team.

The win over Wolves was Ole Gunner Solskjaer’s 53rd victory as a Man United manager since taking charge of the club in December 2018 following the sacking of Jose Mourinho. Surprisingly Solskjaers’ record as a Premier League manager is similar to arch-rival Jurgen Klopp’s record as Liverpool boss after their first 100 Premier League games.

Stats reveal how both managers had a very similar record since taking charge of their respective clubs. Liverpool registered 54 wins under Klopp during the German’s first 100 Premier League games. The Merseyside outfit drew 28 matches while losing 18. Ole Gunner Solskjaer, on the other hand, recorded 53 wins in his first 100 Premier League matches while drawing 28 and losing 19 games.

The Red Devils head coach will also be happy to learn that his side has conceded fewer goals compared to the Germans Merseyside outfit. He will also rejoice in the fact that his side and Klopp’s Liverpool have near-identical win rates and points per game. However, one thing that sets the Norwegian managers’ team apart is the record they now hold of being 28 top-flight games unbeaten on the road.

With Cristiano Ronaldo set to make his much-awaited return to the club, Solskjaer will be banking on the Portuguese to lead the line and help the Red Devils battle arch-rivals Manchester City for the domestic league title.
