Wenger insists Solskjaer has benefited from a favourable fixture list after replacing Jose Mourinho.
Before kickoff last night, Wenger said: “The statistics can sometimes lie. Why? because Rashford played more on the wings with Mourinho and he played through the middle now with Solskjaer and so has more chances to score goals.
“The second thing is I must say, when Mourinho left, Man United had five games that were all winnable. And every win makes you stronger and that’s what Solskjaer has done as well, he’s got young players in.
“What Manchester United is now to me are a counter attacking team with very mobile players and one player in the middle like Pogba who can create the first difference.
“So it will be interesting tonight to see that… This is what you call in a marriage: honeymoon. And the honeymoon stops at some point and then you have to come back to reality… maybe you are lucky and you have a longer honeymoon than everybody else.”
