Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: Manchester United controlled Fulham game well

Pogba's first goal came in the 14th minute and by the 65th minute, he had completed his brace pushing goal tally in the EPL to 11 goals and eight assists - the most ever in his career in a single season.

"I just love Anthony".

"I feel great, the team feels good, and we just have to carry on like this.

I always say the same, but it's true: give the ball to Anthony and we will win!"

But they have been reassured that there's a place for them at Old Trafford and chances will come.

An incredible upturn in form under the Norwegian has seen United unbeaten in 11 matches, winning 10 of those, and suddenly the belief, both from outside and inside the club, has changed entirely.

But Ole Gunnar Solskjaer immediately placed him at the heart of his United midfield, offering the balance between Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic.

"It seems like nothing is impossible".

"We started very well", he said.

And the two-time Premier League victor with Chelsea knows what they must do to become champions next season.

"We want to keep up this good performance, this good run, everyone playing, everyone contributing to the game. There's still a long way to go and we have a lot of big games coming up", he told BBC. "There are big games coming up and that will decide where we're going to stay at the end of the season".

Solskjaer, with one eye on Tuesday's Champions League clash with Paris Saint-Germain, started with Romelu Lukaku in attack as in-form Marcus Rashford was dropped on the bench.

'We played well, we fight for each other.

The former Juventus man played very well and won the Man of the Match award as Solskjaer won his eighth of nine Premier League games to put the team in fourth place in the league, ahead of Chelsea's game against Manchester City on Sunday. 'Of course, Chelsea have one game less, but we are happy for three more points. It will be very hard but hopefully we can keep going.

"I think in the first half we didn't control the game but we scored two goals and after that we got another and then controlled it". Several times he told younger players like Diogo Dalot to get into a better position.

"It's hard to think that had appointed someone who was better suited to get more out of Pogba, Martial and Rashford back in 2016, they would be in a much better place".
