Pogba reflects on win over Fulham at Craven Cottage

Pogba reflects on win over Fulham at Craven Cottage

The Red Devils eased to a 10th win in 11 games under their caretaker manager on Saturday, thanks to a double from Paul Pogba and a fine Anthony Martial solo goal at Craven Cottage, despite Solskjaer making six changes to the side that won at Leicester City last week.

While the job Solskjaer has done since arriving at Old Trafford in December has been nothing short of miraculous, and he's now set an incredible record following his first nine league games in charge. "There's still a long way to go and we have a lot of big games coming up", he told BBC. Next is Paris St-Germain and then we have to keep trying to get three points in the league'.

And as we head towards the final phase of the season, Fulham are sinking further into the relegation scrap, having acquired just seventeen points in 26 matches and are in desperate need of a miraculous turnaround if they are to maintain their top-flight status next season. The result is positive, and it was a good performance as a team.

While United's supporters revelled in watching the legendary figure in the dugout mastermind another victory, Fulham's fans booed Claudio Ranieri down the tunnel after the final whistle. The France midfielder's authority on the ball settled his teammates and it soon became clear United had a plan to get Martial running at Denis Odoi.

The France worldwide had already created the opening goal of a one-sided contest for his compatriot Paul Pogba with a clever reverse pass, before he produced the moment of the game midway through the first half.

"I've just spoken to him outside", he said.

Ander Herrera stung the palms before Pogba put the game to bed in the 65th minute, scoring from the spot after bumbling Le Marchand was adjudged to have fouled Juan Mata.

PSG are unlikely to prove to be as easy as an opponent as Fulham but Solskjaer was happy with how his players controlled the fixture nonetheless.

Solskjaer said that while there was a chance his tinkering could have backfired, his footballing philosophy was "if you don't risk, you don't win".
