They had been 11 points off fourth when Jose Mourinho was sacked in December but Solskjaer's side have dropped just two points since his December appointment and Matic was buoyed by the latest win.
"We have a tough but exciting month ahead", Mata said.
When the former Real Madrid, Chelsea and Inter Milan boss was asked about his objective for the rest of the season, he responded with a simple plan in mind: "Try to win as many points as possible and try nearly the miracle to end in fourth".

"But I think now is not the time to think about individuals but to think about the great moment that we are enjoying as a team".
United are the Premier League's in-form side, with their upturn in fortunes and Matic talked up next season's title chances.
The 18-year-old versatile player does not want to sign a new deal before getting enough clarity of what's going to happen with Fulham and considering the side seems ticketed to lose their top-flight status just one year after promotion, it makes sense for Sessegnon to try and find options elsewhere. But we have to continue, we have to continue like this. When we need three points, we get the three points, when we're playing away. We have to learn always, and this is the way to play.
Meanwhile, Manchester United are now preparing for their crunch Champions League last 16 clash against Paris Saint-Germain at Old Trafford on Tuesday night.
"He's always positive", Matic said.
"At the time people probably thought 'that's a little bit [over the top]'. The same when I see him in the press conference, he's like this with us also in the changing room", added the 30-year-old Serbian global.
