Fulham vs. Manchester United - Football Match Report

Ander Herrera

The Red Devils are in red hot form at the moment under Solskjaer and it will be intriguing to see how they fare in the tough fixtures after the game against the Cottagers.

Pogba scored twice in United's 3-0 win at Craven Cottage; fellow Parisian Anthony Martial got the other with a superb solo effort.

Following the win over Fulham, United are in fourth place in the Premier League, although they have played a game more than Chelsea, who face Manchester City away on Sunday.

Pogba later fired a warning to the chasing pack that they intend "to stay there", adding: "It feels great".

France star Pogba boosted his tally to eight Premier League goals under United's interim manager, who has now won 10 of his 11 matches in charge in all competitions. The spotlight will be on United's record signing to perform against the perennial French champions but he goes into the game in the best form of his Manchester United career.

Mike Conley trade rumor roundup
The Raptors will "attack the buyout market", Ujiri said on Thursday night, according to the Toronto Sun's Ryan Wolstat . In his 11 seasons with Memphis, Gasol became the franchise leader in points, rebounds, blocks and field goals made.

And Solskjaer agreed the defeat of Claudio Ranieri's side was the ideal warm-up, telling reporters: "I would have to say so because it's a tough place to come and we gave them the first 10 minutes, maybe played into their hands, some counter-attacks, they put the ball into the box a few times but then, after we scored the first goal, we played a fantastic last 80 minutes". We just want to stay there [in the top four] and when we need three points, we get the three points like today. He is a very good player, he can dribble, he can score the goals, he's strong, has character, is fast.

Defeat for Fulham leaves them 19th in the table, with supporters jeering manager Claudio Ranieri's substitutions and with louder boos heard at full-time. Pogba is the captain in everything but name, the leader in the dressing room and on the pitch.

The closest United have come to losing since Solskjaer's arrival was against Burnley at the end of January, when they came back from 2-0 down to seal a draw.

"I am excited about the challenges that lie ahead of us as we prepare for a very busy period in the season". The last-ditch, winning games at the end, winning points at the end, that was fantastic.

Appointed a month before Solskjaer, the Italian was subjected to chants of "you don't know what you're doing" early in the second half by the irked Craven Cottage faithful.
