The Norwegian boss arrived at Old Trafford in mid-December to replace Jose Mourinho who was sacked after an abysmal start to the campaign.
Given the toxicity of the situation, things could only get better under the baby-faced assassin, but nobody could have predicated just how well things have gone.
From his opening 11 Premier League matches in charge at Old Trafford, Solskjaer is still yet to taste defeat.
United have won nine matches and drawn twice, both at home against Burnley and Liverpool.
If the league had began on December 22 which was Solskjaer’s first match in charge (5-1 win at Cardiff), the table would have panned out very different.
In fact, it’s Manchester United who would sit top of the pile with 29 points from a possible 33.
During that time they have also scored the second highest goals in the division (26) and conceded the least (7).
Manchester City sit second, five points adrift of their noisy neighbours.
Arsenal would be positioned in third on 22 points.
Table toppers Liverpool sit fourth on 21 points from ten matches but have a gamp in hand over the teams above.
Tottenham are fifth with 21 points having lost four times and won seven, they are still yet to draw a match this season.
Chelsea are way down in eighth place, which explains why Maurizio Sarri has been under pressure to keep his job.
Burnley are up in sixth which shows just how much they have improved of late to help steer them away from safety.
Down the bottom, Huddersfield are at the foot of the table with just four points from their last eleven matches.
Joining them perhaps surprisingly is Brighton.
The Seagulls are in the middle of a worrying dip that now sees them just two points clear of the relegation zone.
Fulham, who sacked Claudio Ranieri yesterday sit 18th with eight points from 11 matches.
