Man Utd midfielder Mata: Players and Solskjaer have great chemistry

Man Utd midfielder Mata: Players and Solskjaer have great chemistry

Pogba was supposed to be United's main man in the biggest games, such as against Paris Saint-Germain at Old Trafford on Tuesday. Naturally, everyone associated with the player and the club was delighted with this stat, apart from one Manchester United player.

"We created two great chances to score a goal but suddenly Pogba scored their first goal and I thought "okay, stay calm and we can continue to play". And finally, it was Pogba (2 goals), who eased United's transition in the final third with some excellent passing and hold-up play in and around the half-spaces.

Paul Pogba has taken his league goal tally into double figures in a single season for the first time in his career. United are now up to fourth in the table.

"We've just got to concentrate on ourselves, we can't really control anything that other teams can do". "We have to carry on like that to stay in the top four".

Those games could be crucial for Solskjaer with United now challenging for the top following their resurgence. A back four of Odoi, Le Marchand, Ream and Bryan is at least three quarters made of Championship players.

"It's never about one person when the team is winning games of football". "Paul can do that with his qualities".

Whittaker experienced pain in his abdomen late last night and was taken to a hospital, where he was diagnosed with a hernia. Gastelum, of California, is riding a two-fight win streak, including a split-decision victory over Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza .

Asked if this was ideal preparation for facing PSG, Solskjaer said: "Yes, I would have to say so because it's a tough place to come". He made so many runs against Fulham that the dejected opponents stopped trying to check him.

Slavisa Jokanovic could not solve this mess of a defence Fulham have at disposal this season and now Claudio Ranieri realizes he will not be able to do any better. When we need three points, we get the three points, when we're playing away.

Their mood contrasted totally with the 4,000 festive away fans who applauded Pogba's fast feet and tricky moves.

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. He came to the dressing room.

In the right back role, young Portuguese Diogo Dalot could replace veteran Ashley Young. It did his standing with the United faithful no harm when he handed his shirt to a young fan who had requested it with a cardboard sign as the players left the field.

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.
