Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be appointed Manchester United's next full-time boss, according to a report.

The 45-year-old has been able to rejuvenate the likes of Pogba, Herrera and Matic, all of who were heavily criticized under Jose Mourinho and are now a key part of Manchester United's starting lineup. Fulham were dispatched 3-0 on Saturday and here we will be taking a look at some important storylines.

"It's a good sign, even though we have to carry on to stay there".

And this is the first time that Man United have gotten amongst the top four since the opening week of the season.

Manchester United interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer smiles before the Premier League match with Fulham at Craven Cottage in London February 9, 2019.

'Yes, it was towards the end of the game and we played a very poor game and Cristiano scored it, ' Solskjaer said of his former team-mate's goal.

"24 points for us to fight for, the other ones in the top four to fight too, but I believe we are going to be there".

United have won nine and drawn one of 10 matches in all competitions under Solskjaer, while a renewed focus on attacking football has allowed players such as Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford to flourish. "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".

Paul Pogba opened the scoring for United, with Anthony Martial finding the back of the net with a superb strike to double their lead in the first half.

Juan Mata and Diogo Dalot both came in to get game time, with Anthony Martial starting and looking inspired. "First, it seemed very hard for us to reach the Champions League places in the Premier League and we are already there".

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.

"The good atmosphere helps the team, and for me, being more in the box gives me more chances to score".
