Herrera has quietly become crucial to Solskjaer’s Manchester United vision

Herrera has quietly become crucial to Solskjaer’s Manchester United vision

United are a point clear of Chelsea and Arsenal, and nine points behind third-placed Tottenham after 26 Premier League matches.

Manchester United will end the day in the top four of the Premier League for the first time since the opening day of the season after yet another convincing display, this time away to struggling Fulham.

And Solskjaer agreed the defeat of Claudio Ranieri's side was the ideal warm-up, telling reporters: "I would have to say so because it's a tough place to come and we gave them the first 10 minutes, maybe played into their hands, some counter-attacks, they put the ball into the box a few times but then, after we scored the first goal, we played a fantastic last 80 minutes". "But we've got Liverpool, we've got (Manchester) City (still to play), so we might have a say in what's happening at the top of the table", he said. Everyone's got to take us seriously now, you know?

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.

"We're on a great run but I think the players are feeling the same".

Solskjaer said he had met United owner Avram Glazer after the game, but he wouldn't be drawn on whether they would have any further meetings to discuss his future at the club. "I thought, "Wow what a challenge", he said. It's the whole team, it's us together. Because, going into every game thinking they can win it has not been the most conspicuous of aims since Sir Alex Ferguson retired.

Fulham boss Claudio Ranieri felt his players were too eager to force an equaliser following Pogba's 14th minute opener, which allowed Martial to exploit them on the break for the second goal.

Under the previous regime, Pogba was shackled to incredibly negative tactics but has since been liberated, allowing him to score eight goals and provide five assists in just 10 games.

"But my players are very. not anxious, but they want to score immediately, but against big teams, it's hard. That's the real problem".
