Solskjaer becomes the 13th manager to reach the number, and will overtake Louis van Gaal (54) with a further five wins.
But Ole has some way to go before reaching the top of tree. To do so, he’ll first need to displace Sir Matt Busby, who has 576 victories to his name, and Sir Alex Ferguson, who recorded a mammoth 895 successes between 1986 and 2013.
HOW DID SOLSKJAER REACH HIS HALF-CENTURY?
The Norwegian took over as caretaker manager in late 2018, and got off to a superb start by beating Cardiff City 5-1 – the first time the club had notched five in a Premier League game since Sir Alex Ferguson’s final match in charge (a 5-5 draw with West Bromwich Albion).
Ole won his first eight games in charge, and his first nine consecutive away games – both runs were club records.
There was then a 19-match unbeaten run from January to July 2020, which delivered 14 wins, as United overhauled Leicester City and Chelsea to seal a third-place Premier League finish, and progressed to the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup, the FA Cup and the Europa League.
