With six straight wins in the Premier League he has now overtaken the late Sir Matt Busby, who won his first five First Division matches upon taking over at the club in 1945.

The Red Devils went on to win their next five games since that auspicious debut, a run that includes victory in the FA Cup third round over Reading and which clinched Solskjaer the distinction of overseeing the most successful start ever from a United manager .

Now, thanks to Saturday's 2-1 win over Brighton , the former striker also holds that record in the league.

The Norwegian has been a breath of fresh air around Old Trafford since taking over from Jose Mourinho in December, revitalising a team that had been short of confidence and consistency.

Having starred at United as a player, he received a stunning welcome back to the club in his first match with a 5-1 win over Cardiff.

Manchester United interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has set a new club record in the Premier League as his perfect start to life on the bench continues.
