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

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

"He is playing to his potential, we are trying to push the team forward to put players in positions where they can hurt teams", Solskjaer said of man-of-the-match Pogba.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer remains unbeaten as United's caretaker manager (winning 10 of 11 games in all competitions) and they've now moved into the top four and have 51 points.

Solskjaer, who left in the in-form Marcus Rashford on the bench, commended Pogba's impressive run of performances while preferring not to measure them against his team-mates. Pogba is the captain in everything but name, the leader in the dressing room and on the pitch.

The odds are against the team with the worst defensive record in the division, with 58 goals conceded, pulling off a miraculous escape given that they are seven points adrift of 17th place with 12 games remaining.

"It's not me making a difference to the club".

"So let's make sure we stay in the top four and we'll do that if we get some help, but we've got to concentrate on ourselves, we can't really think about or control what other teams do". "There's still a long way to go and we have a lot of big games coming up", he told BBC.

Fulham fans made their feelings clear as they booed Schurrle when he was replaced by Cyrus Christie on 53 minutes and applauded the decision to take off Ryan Babel on 77 minutes after the Netherlands worldwide had hit the post from point blank range. But these big games coming up will determine where we end up.

The two goals against relegation threatened Fulham, a brilliant powerful finish at the front post in the first half and a penalty in the second half, took the 26 year old to 13 goals either assisted or scored since December 22nd.

"But my players are very. not anxious, but they want to score immediately, but against big teams, it's hard". A back four of Odoi, Le Marchand, Ream and Bryan is at least three quarters made of Championship players. "That's the real problem".

"You know he's going to be able to contribute and he will contribute, don't worry about that".

"I understand the fans".

"A hard February but we have high hopes and I think we are in a good spell, especially in terms of confidence".
