Ole Gunnar Solskjaer tips Manchester United for glory in Europe

May JohnsonFeb 11, 2019

"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".

A brace from Paul Pogba and stunning solo goal from Anthony Martial secured the points for the Red Devils, moving them into the top four at the expense of Chelsea, who face Manchester City at the Etihad on Sunday. He has won the Premier League, FA Cup and Europa League and is now one of the senior players within the team.

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.

"Of course, Chelsea have [played] one game less but we are happy for three more points. There are big games coming up and that will decide where we're going to stay at the end of the season". The Italian has only been in the job for three months but Fulham are now seven points from safety in the Premier League.

Defeat for Fulham leaves them 19th in the table, with supporters jeering manager Claudio Ranieri's substitutions and with louder boos heard at full-time.

Survival is looking increasingly unlikely as the weeks go by and some of the Craven Cottage faithful turned on the Italian during the second half.

Curiously, it was the wind, which made the ball move weirdly in the air, and not their opponents that took United a while to get used to.

It seems Pogba is pretty unstoppable, as long as you give him 30 minutes to get up to speed.

The dam was holding 224% of its capacity Monday afternoon, according to 9 News, after peaking Sunday night at 247%. The Ross River reached its peak Monday morning and was expected to remain at that level through Tuesday.

Pogba has been involved in 13 league goals under Solskjaer, scoring eight and creating five, and he eased United ahead with a powerful strike in the 14th minute.

"Magic from Martial!" said Neville.

"I just spoke to him outside here".

They added another when strong work from Romelu Lukaku led to Le Marchand bringing down Juan Mata just inside the box.

United themselves have been in great form and with the game being held at their home turf, United well and truly have an upper hand over their rivals on Tuesday night.

"But my players are very, how can I say, not anxious, but they want to score immediately to draw the match".

"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.
