It was the most significant contribution that earned Manchester United a ninth win in ten games under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and kept them firmly in the mix for a top-four place.

Do you think Martial deserves his new contract?

"I speak about my experience at this club with Cristiano and what Anthony can achieve".

The 2018 World Cup victor has now managed six goals and five assists in United's eight league matches under caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, having thrived in more of a free role since the departure of Jose Mourinho.

Solskjaer believes the France forward has plenty of room for improvement and has urged him to look at the way Ronaldo developed.

The staple superstar signing that gets people off their seats, Douglas Costa could be the ready made answer to Manchester United's right wing problem.

"Both owners (Kjell Inge Røkke and Bjørn Rune Gjelsten) wished me all the best because they knew this is something I dreamed about". 'Good players make each other better, don't they, and I can only explain goals like this with quality, ' said Solksjaer.


"I have got to know the players, what potential they have, how far away they are from reaching that potential, and who we can build a team on, so of course I put my views into the club", said the interim boss.

"When you see quality coming in, whether it is in your position or not, you want the team to do as well as we can".

The France worldwide joined United back in 2015 from AS Monaco for a £36m ($47m) fee and he has since enhanced his reputation as one of the best young players in European football. "He's a fantastic finisher, he needs to get more chances".

Against Leicester, Rashford made his 100th Premier League appearance for Manchester United and capped it off with yet another goal.

David de Gea is a dead cert to start in goal and after scoring his first goal for the club in stoppage time against Burnley, Victor Lindelof will also begin the match. You've got to model yourself on someone and you've got to have more challenges ahead of you.

"The club are working on a few players", he said.

Meanwhile, United have confirmed the £7m sale of Belgium midfielder Marouane Fellaini to Shandong Luneng Taishan.
