Leicester vs Manchester United: Solskjaer speaks on finishing in top four

  • Manchester United interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with forward Anthony Martial

Manchester United's victory over Leicester at the King Power stadium saw Paul Pogba assist Marcus Rashford for the only goal of the game.

But the Frenchman has been an integral part of the side since Solskjaer replaced the sacked Mourinho in December.

He doesn't miss chances.

Earlier, TUKO.co.ke reported that Manchester United have confirmed Marouane Fellaini's switch to Shandong Luneng Taishan FC in China on a permanent transfer.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has told the Manchester United players who have done him proud that his future rests in their hands.

In a statement in the club's official website, the Red Devils applauded the Belgium global, who arrived Old Trafford from Everton in August 2013.

A front four of Coutinho, Pogba, Martial and Rashford is a formidable thought for any team to deal with and Juan Mata's slick and neat approach to football would fit right in with the Barcelona ethos.

It will also likely feature cheaper build materials and might even be missing some functionality present on the other two devices. Huawei CEO Richard Yu recently mentioned that Huawei will also reveal its foldable smartphone at MWC press event this year.

The only concern here is that the club has to fend off interest from Tottenham to sign the player which, given Daniel Levy's reluctance in loosening his purse strings, shouldn't be too much of an issue.

Of the new contract, Solskjær said: "It's a confirmation that we are happy with him, we believe in him".

Claude Puel made another change as the game approached its final quarter of an hour, Gray making way for Shinji Okazaki, and De Gea made a good stop when Ghezzal curled a free kick towards the top corner. He defended stoutly, used the ball efficiently and made one excellent block against James Maddison.

The 45-year-old, who became the first Man United manager to win his opening eight games, was loaned out by Molde following Jose Mourinho's sacking.

Ghezzal came on for Maddison moments later, the home fans unhappy that the midfielder had been taken off, and Ndidi blasted a wayward effort into the stands.

The 45-year-old Norwegian, now in interim charge while "on loan" from his job managing Molde back home, believes he can continue in his dream job as United boss beyond the end of the season after starting his reign with seven straight victories and then the midweek rally from 2-0 down to draw with Burnley.

If things weren't bad enough for Arsenal, having to play a Manchester City side wounded after a shock defeat, the Gunners now do so chasing Manchester United. Though it would not last.
