Solskjaer was asked to restore 'style' and 'mood' at Manchester United

Jamie Redknapp

Manchester United jumped into the top for of the Premier League on Saturday for the first time since August with a 3-0 win at Fulham.

United doubled their lead on 23 minutes when Martial showed shades of Cristiano Ronaldo's famous late victor at Craven Cottage in 2007.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, the Norwegian said: "We are missing Antonio [Valencia] and Matteo [Darmian] - they're not available, so we have a big strong and healthy squad and with a big game coming up I have many to pick from". If he wants to be at Cristiano's level, Anthony knows what he has to do. It's up to him.

It cuts a sharp contrast to the joyless closing months of the Portuguese's tenure and caretaker manager Solskjaer was full of praise for a player whose form looks increasingly likely to secure him the United job on a full-time basis.

Solskjaer has overseen a dramatic change in fortunes for United since replacing Mourinho in December, and will be looking for his 11th victory in 12 games when Paris St Germain visit Old Trafford in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

He's won a whopping 19 of those 22 clashes, with Burnley, Odd and Sarpsborg 08 the only three teams to take points off a Solskjaer-led side since the hazy days of August. The home side created more chances with Andre Schurrle shooting over from seven yards.

The 56-year-old shot the promo for his new show during a recent trip to Russian Federation, where you might have seen him falling flat on his arse as he threw the puck down ahead of an ice hockey game. He is a Manchester United player.

Manchester United attacker Anthony Martial is eager to improve his goalscoring.

"However, is he the man to win them the Champions League and the Premier League?" "The crowd want to see the best players".

If the Sweden global is passed fit he is likely to start against the French champions at Old Trafford on Tuesday night. That gives it an extra edge.

"When Ole Gunnar arrived, in a kind of way, I got the impression that Sir Alex was back, because he was accompanied by Mike Phelan and Michael Carrick".
