United boss Solskjaer praises ‘fantastic 80 minutes’ after win at Fulham

Paul Pogba is now enjoying more freedom playing alongside Herrera

Mourinho was sacked last December with United languishing sixth in the Premier League table and a whopping 11 points off the top four.

"Saturday's victory over Fulham, Solskjaer's eighth in his nine Premier League games so far, lifted United into the top four for the first time since the opening weekend".

"We know there's a very, very good player there with Fred so hopefully he'll adjust to the English game because there's no doubt there's talent, absolutely no doubt", he said last month.

Discussing his decision to change his line-up, which including leaving Marcus Rashford on the bench after he picked up a knock at Leicester, Solskjaer said: "If we are going to be successful this season, we need everyone to contribute and everyone in the squad knows they've got chance to contribute if it's now or next week or the week after".

The visitors looked to get a third before half-time and Phil Jones nearly got himself on the scoresheet when he fired just over from the edge of the box after Fulham failed to clear a corner.

"I have to say I don't think I would have hit it like he did, so fantastic goal".

Zion Williamson rocks the world with a … block?
Kyle Guy and Ty Jerome each scored 16 to lead Virginia (20-2, 8-2), which plays the No. 8 Tar Heels on Monday night. Williamson is the nation's only player averaging 20.0+ points and shooting.650+ from the field.

United have explored other options, such as Pochettino and Zinedine Zidane, but Joel and Avram Glazer are convinced that Solskjaer is the right man to lead the club. Who I meet and when I meet people is not really up for me to tell.

Fulham had more than one opportunity to claw their way back into the game this afternoon. It's the whole team, it's all of us together. Martial played his France teammate in and Pogba rifled an effort past goalkeeper Sergio Rico, who would have been disappointed to be beaten at his near post.

The French star is literally running the show given the freedom to express himself in attacking under the Norwegian tactician, notching as many goals and assisting some.

Usually, we'd reiterate that Pogba needs to produce more of these types of performances but he has been consistently brilliant since Solskjaer has held the reins. "They want to see that their players fight until the end", he said.

We would signpost some of the very best moments but Pogba barely put a foot wrong beyond the first 30 minutes.
