Why has Ole Gunnar Solskjaer been appointed Manchester United’s permanent manager? If you've been living in the Bremsnes caves, this table might explain why.

Since Jose Mourinho’s sacking on December 18 last year – and Solskjaer’s speedy appointment as caretaker – United have played 13 Premier League matches, winning 10 of them.

In the real table, however, they are in fifth place: 18 points behind leaders Liverpool, 16 off Manchester City, and two points adrift of Arsenal in the final Champions League spot.
