However, Fellaini's calf problem has altered United's plans and Solskjaer made clear his stance on McTominay's situation ahead of the side's clash with Brighton.

The prized three points propelled Man Utd level with rivals Arsenal on 41 points, six points off the top-four, while it also meant that Solskjaer became the first ever Man Utd manager to open up with six successive wins. He'll be out for a few weeks'.

Pressed again on whether he expects anything to be done, Solskjaer added: "No, not really".

Turkish outfit Fenerbahce and AC Milan continue to hold an interest in the former Everton player having attempted to sign him as a free agent last summer.

It is now apparent both players will not be leaving this month with United reluctant to do any business in the January window.

Fellaini has been a long-term target of Chinese clubs, with Shanghai SIPG and Guanghzou Evergrande previously making offers for the Belgium global.

Mourinho was criticised for his style of play as United manager, with fans and players growing frustrated with the negative, cautious approach adopted by his team.

Alexis Sanchez will also present Solskjaer with an issue when he is finally fully fit from hamstring troubles that have limited him to just one start in the past two months. "Doesn't matter who you are, you want to play football and he's been hindered by injuries", said Solskjaer.

Rashford has turned his form around since Solskjaer's arrival, and combined with Pogba for United's goal in their 1-0 win over Tottenham on Sunday.

"I know how frustrating that can be and how eager you are to get back".

"Maybe in the Reading game he should have told me at half-time "I need to come off now". He's working hard in training - his attitude has been fantastic. "I've been driving around a bit and finding my bearings, I've met mates so it's not like I'm on my own".
