Solskjaer and Phelan brought back 'old school' Man United - Lingard

Solskjaer and Phelan brought back 'old school' Man United - Lingard

The 33-year-old former Manchester United and Everton captain, speaking in an interview with CNN World Sport released on Tuesday, said he was not a fading force and he could still compete against some of the world's best players.

Furthermore, United's squad clearly appear to be enjoying their football under Solskjaer, who, with every passing game, is proving that his lack of experience as manager might not matter as the Red Devils are yet to lose a game under his watch.

Prior to his arrival the travel-shy Red Devils had scraped only one win on the road in six outings, registering just three victories in their previous 11 top-flight away games.

Marcus Rashford is closer to inking a new deal with Manchester United.

Manchester United face Fulham at Craven Cottage on Saturday afternoon looking to move into fourth position in the Premier League table.

Rashford was duly handed the "Player of the Month" award following what has been a truly sensational return to form since Jose Mourinho left.

Following a awful start to the Premier League under Jose Mourinho, a top-four spot would ensure Champions League glory for Solskjaer's men and would mark a laudable achievement for the Norwegian tactician.

"Marcus and me have been setting targets for each other to challenge ourselves", Lingard said.

And Wayne Rooney feels the Norwegian deserves a chance if they don't lure Mauricio Pochettino from Tottenham.

The calming and edifying presence of Solskjaer has worked wonders for a kid who, under Mourinho, looked petrified in the box a lot of the time, clearly conscious of the retribution in store for him from his former manager.

United dropped their first points under Solskjaer when they drew 2-2 vs Burnley last week and this weekend they had to earn a hard-fought 1-0 win over Leicester City.

"If I'm being honest, quality wise I can still play in the Premier League". He got the players backing him straight away.

"I signed him for £5 million, it was good business", the Italian said.
