Whatever happens in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Manchester United reign from here, he will always have his own little slice of history from his time at Old Trafford.

But most importantly the rule change would protect United's players, and that ultimately is what it's about.

Not everyone was in favour of the rule change, but then this is the Premier League, where it can sometimes feel like a vote on whether the sky is blue would still cause arguments amongst the 20 member clubs.

It was a lovely early summer's evening in late June when Solskjaer etched his name into the record books, becoming the first manager in England to make a quintuple substitution in a competitive game.

Solskjaer's moment of history - or infamy as critics of the rule may have it - was made possible by the Premier League following the Bundesliga's example and allowing five substitutions in a game (from nine players on the bench) when football resumed post-lockdown.

Premier League clubs have already voted against introducing five substitutes this season, but Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp didn't sound like they were willing to let the matter lie before the international break.

The weather and the sight of Scott McTominay, Andreas Pereira, Juan Mata, Daniel James and Odion Ighalo waiting patiently on the Old Trafford touchline to come on gave off an air of pre-season to proceedings, but the previous 80 minutes had been anything but, United beating Sheffield United 3-0 in one of their most accomplished performances of last season.
