Ole Gunnar Solskjaer makes Premier League title claim after win over Fulham

Share

- Fulham have conceded 58 goals in 26 Premier League games this season; only three sides have shipped more at this stage in the history of the competition (Barnsley in 97-98 - 62, Swindon Town in 93-94 - 60 and Blackburn Rovers in 11-12 - 59).

An eye-watering 11 points off the Champions League spots when Jose Mourinho was sacked, caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's stunning start to life at the helm has seen them claw back that gap in style.

Manchester United were looking to record an eighth win in nine games in the Premier League since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over the reins from Mourinho in December.

In fact, the Red Devils could end the week in the top four, should Chelsea fail to win against Manchester City on Sunday.

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.

Solskjaer says he spoke to co-owner Avram Glazer after the match when the American visited the United dressing room, but he insists the team's improvement is not simply down to his impact.

"I just focus on trying to put the ball inside the goal". He came to the dressing room.

"I've been in that situation a few times myself and it's about who grabs it. It's the players who play, it's the staff, how we do things at Carrington, at the training ground, the mood, it's never about one person when the team is winning games".

Fulham remain in relegation territory in 19th place, and they too have a tough schedule ahead.

Martial's scintillating run and finish was the pick of the goals on a blustery afternoon at Craven Cottage, where Pogba followed his impressive opener with a second-half penalty that sealed a comfortable 3-0 win that increases the pressure on struggling Fulham.

As for his goal double against Fulham, Pogba said: "It's always great to score goals, most important is to win games". We conceded the counter-attack, and at that point it was more hard. "When you play against champions you have to stay calm and not lose your composure - that is the real problem".

"You don't know what you're doing" chanted a number inside Craven Cottage as Ranieri brought on Cyrus Christie for Schurrle, with fans singing the name of substitute Ryan Sessegnon.

"We have to carry on playing like we did today".
