The Norwegian has won all of his first six matches in charge of United after he took over from Mourinho, who was sacked in December.

Under the Portuguese coach, United slumped to eighth in the league at one point in a disappointing start to the new season, while they also exited the Carabao Cup.

The Red Devils now look revitalised with Solskjaer at the wheel, and Giggs says that the caretaker boss spotted a problem with Mourinho’s use of his full-backs earlier in the season.

When asked what Solskjaer has changed since his arrival at United, Giggs told Premier League Productions: “Well, reminding the players how good they are.

“It’s little tweaks. It’s like you see with golfers. Just a little tweak to the game that someone else on the outside might have seen.

“Ole’s been to a few games before he took over. I was at a game next to him, and he was pointing out to me: ‘Look at the full-backs, they’re not high enough.’

“Things that we were used to, things that you associate with Man United teams.

“OK you score two, we’ll score three and I think he’s instilled that back into them that we need to score goals, we need to attack and if we’re all higher up the pitch then it just poses the opposition that question.

“All of a sudden teams are going from, ‘right it’s Man United, we’ve got a chance today’ to actually, ‘oh yeah, we’ll be defending, we’ll be deeper’.

“With the front players that United have got, not only the starting players but the ones coming off the bench, you’ve seen [Alexis] Sanchez, you’ve seen [Romelu] Lukaku now having an impact.

“It rivals any team within the Premier League the firepower that United have got.”
