OIe Gunnar Solskjaer has been charged with bringing about a reversal in fortune and has made a dream start to his tenure with back-to-back successes.A 5-1 mauling of Cardiff has been followed by a comprehensive 3-1 victory over Huddersfield, with Matic seeing United rediscover their spark as they endeavour to deliver the results expected of them.The Serbia international told BBC Sport after helping United to see off the Terriers at Old Trafford: “After Cardiff, we gained more confidence. It was important to win at our stadium, to bring a smile on the face of our supporters.“We made some mistakes. We need to see what we can do better. It’s a completely different atmosphere when you win games.“This club doesn’t accept drawing or losing a game. This is the way we have to try to win the next one.”Matic was the man to put United on their way to another welcome three-point haul on Boxing Day.His opening goal was his first for the Red Devils since March, with the 30-year-old one of several players to be enjoying a new lease of life under Solskjaer.He added: “It’s always important to score early if possible. After that, we have more space to play.“I’m happy with my goal.”United will be back in action on Sunday when they play host to Bournemouth, with there still an eight-point gap for them to bridge in order to return to the Champions League spots.

first_img Amritanshu Mukherjee New DelhiJune 3, 2019UPDATED: June 4, 2019 08:20 IST HIGHLIGHTSSubscribers can even go on to win a month’s free subscription.The game requires subscribers to predict winning cricket teams.Subscribers will need to tune into channel number 608 hosting Dish TV’s Dishkiyaon app.The cricket season is upon us and most DTH, as well as cable TV operators, are trying their best to cash in on the opportunity. Most DTH operators are coming up with several cricket-special channel packs with the maximum number of sports channels to appease to sports fans. Most of these packs are coming across as more cost-effective solutions when compared to the TRAI-induced a-la-carte channel packs. However, in order to gain an edge over its rivals, Dish TV is now coming up with a clever way to keep its subscribers engaged and even gain more subscribers.For the cricket World Cup season, Dish TV has introduced a new game that will reward its subscribers with free recharges. Subscribers can even go on to win a month’s free subscription. The game requires subscribers to predict the teams that will win a particular cricket match and those with right answers will win free recharges. Those subscribers who win five consecutive rounds will be eligible for winning a month’s free subscription.In order to take part in this game, subscribers will need to tune into channel number 608 hosting Dish TV’s Dishkiyaon app. The service will be active during the cricket matches and subscribers will be required to predict the winning team in that match. Each of the options will have a unique number. The subscriber needs to dial the number of the predicted option and leave a missed call from the registered mobile number.Do note that the Dishkiyaon app will only allow a limited time for players to participate and register their reply. If the prediction turns out to be true, then consumers win free recharges. For five correct predictions, Dish TV will reward with a month’s free subscription.advertisementThe latest move by Dish TV is an effort to draw in more subscribers to the service as well as retain existing subscribers. Although Dish TV isn’t the only one doing it right now, it could surely help the operator to balance the books that were put in jeopardy a few months ago with the adoption of the new DTH regulations.Currently, Dish TV is offering four sports channel packs to cricket fans. The Bharat Cricket pack costs Rs 147 and comes with 191 channels as well as services. The Maxi Sports pack comes for Rs 326 and offers 213 channels as well as services. The Super Sports pack includes all sports channels, making a total of 225 channels and comes for Rs 385.ALSO READ | New DTH regulations have made 49 per cent consider switching to online streaming servicesALSO READ | Tata Sky changes prices for its regional channel packs: Price, channel list and all you need to knowALSO READ | Soon, you may no more need to buy a Set Top Box while changing your DTH connectionGet real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?
