Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Ince has claimed that anyone could have matched the six straight wins as Solskjaer did after taking over from Jose Mourinho.
The Portuguese boss was sacked before the Christmas immediately after the 3-1 defeat at fierce rivals Liverpool.

Solskjaer took over as Red Devils interim manager and has since gone on to record six wins in a row.
Meanwhile, many fans and pundits are now suggesting that the Norwegian boss is really doing a great job at Stamford Bridge.
However, Ince, who played for United between 1989 and 1995, believes either him or Steve Bruce could have done it well.

“We can’t get too sucked in with what Ole’s done,” Ince told Paddy Power.
“Let’s be honest, it couldn’t get any worse at Manchester United before Jose Mourinho left.”
“There was a dark cloud over the entire club, the players, the fans and the staff. It was impacting performances on the pitch.”
“Ole’s come in, a friendly face at the club with a calming influence and it seems as though the players have upped their effort as a result.”
“The shackles are off, but that doesn’t mean that Ole is the right man for the job.”
“I could have gone in and done the same thing, so could Steve Bruce.”
“Anyone could have gone in and done what he has done, it wasn’t a hard thing to do to give those players freedom and improve the mood.”
Pogba on Solskjaer: “He is doing a really good job. As a player he knew the mentality of this club. He has come back to help us and it is going very well. The season is long so let’s see how it goes.” #MUFC pic.twitter.com/43MqRgIsWe
