Man Utd chiefs make decision on date to make Solskjaer permanent boss

Manchester United have been on a supreme run of form since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was appointed back in December.

They are: Juventus, Manchester City, Manchester United, Ajax, FC Porto and Tottenham Hotspur.

Although contracted to United for another three months, Molde - now in the Norwegian off-season - say Solskjaer, who managed the club from 2011-2014 and from 2015 onwards, will take up a new contract with them in the summer.

Manchester United want to confirm Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as their new permanent boss during the upcoming worldwide break. There are still eight games and we want to win every game.

United pulled off one of the most remarkable comebacks in the competition, fighting back from a 2-0 home deficit, to win 3-1 at Paris Saint-Germain. "I was stood right behind the ball and we don't put enough pressure on Xhaka, who must be Brazilian by the way because he struck the ball and it swerves and moves".

Former Arsenal and England defender Martin Keown has predicted that his old club will finish outside the top four this season.

United's visit Wolves for an all-Premier League FA Cup quarter-final on Saturday night is followed by a 10-day window for Euro 2020 qualifiers and worldwide friendlies, and United want to pin things down in time to get the deal done.

"Spurs lose, we lose, Chelsea draw, it's going to be down to the wire, the last few games definitely", added Solskjaer.

Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno enjoyed another fine display and did well to keep out Lukaku on two occasions, with Gunners head coach Unai Emery pleased with the progress he is witnessing.

"We knew Manchester United could use different tactics but we wanted to impose our gameplan and I think we did that". We can feel very proud of all our players.

"We have won games we have not deserved to win, and today we lost a game we did not deserve to lose. They gave all they could against the best team at this moment", he told Match of the Day.
