Ole Gunnar Solskjaer 'tells Marcus Rashford he is main striker'

Manchester United’s striking role is the England striker’s

Tottenham host Manchester United at Wembley Stadium this weekend as they look for their second big win of the week, having also beaten Chelsea in the first-leg of their League Cup semi-final.

Third-placed Tottenham's squad is also stretched by injuries and Berbatov says a buoyant United side could be risky for Mauricio Pochettino's side.

"No, we've not had that conversation", said Solskjaer. "We're on a great run at the moment, so to carry it on against Tottenham and to get the win would be flawless".

"If we are talking about extending a contract or giving me more money, you need to be careful".

Berbatov spent two seasons at Tottenham, scoring 27 league goals, before joining United in 2008, netting 48 league goals in his four seasons at Old Tarfford.

"Now on Sunday we are going to meet at Wembley when 20 years ago I was shouting a goal that he scored for Manchester United and now we are going to play them at Wembley".

After Comey firing, Federal Bureau of Investigation probed whether president was Russian agent
The deputy attorney general, Rod Rosenstein, appointed Mueller soon after Comey's firing in May 2017 to lead the investigation. Trump has also repeatedly and vociferously denied collusion with the Russians. "I acknowledge that", Giuliani said.

Sports Writer Let Go For Tweets About QB Kyler Murray
Texas Tech showed continued interest in Murray and offered him a scholarship once Kingsbury came aboard. "All I know is Kyler has a tremendous opportunity to be a great baseball player and he knows that".

The new Mercedes-Benz CLA is sleeker, more powerful than ever before
Beneath the car's hood is a powerful 2.0-liter turbo inline-four engine that produces 221 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. Like the A-Class, the CLA will offer a bevy of active safety systems but not many of them will be standard.

The former United striker has enjoyed a fine start to life as the Red Devils' interim boss, winning five successive matches since taking over from Jose Mourinho. "They have entertained us and look so confident all of a sudden".

Heung-Min Son, Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane are in fine form for Tottenham, with England worldwide Kane being the joint top scorer in the Premier League with 14 goals. "Spurs need to stay close to the top of the table, and United fighting for that fourth spot".

And Pochettino has teased United fans that he could be keen on the job - because he gets on so well with United legend Ferguson, who Solskjaer brought into the club's training ground over the festive period to inspire his players. "We can talk about Harry Kane and his class and I'm sure Marcus as well has the potential to get up there".

This is a wonderfully illuminating piece from Ducker - one of the best United journalists out there - which details the way in which Solskjaer, through little more than practical man-management, has reversed the tide of despair cast by Mourinho. "Newcastle away is a test, the first game at Cardiff is a test, the first home game is a test".

Solskjaer's most famous moment in a United shirt came when he scored an injury-time victor against Bayern Munich in the 1999 Champions League final.
