Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: Man United star can become like Cristiano Ronaldo

Interestingly, many Man United fans and club legend Gary Neville compared Martial's goal to Ronaldo's strike against Fulham, 12 years ago.

Martial has put the improvements down to Solskjaer's more attacking style.

"But my job description was, until the summer, get us playing in a certain way, get the mood back, get results - of course, I love every single minute of it and I'll take whatever comes when it comes".

"Before the coach arrived I was in the shadows, on the bench, and I accepted that", said Pogba.

Yet again Pogba was the creative force behind everything Manchester United did going forward, pulling the Fulham defence one way and then the other with his passing and dribbling.

"I am sure he will keep improving and he has been fantastic for me".

United host Paris Saint-Germain in the last-16 of the Champions League on Tuesday before travelling to Chelsea at the same stage of the FA Cup next Monday.

"When our new coach came in he had a lot of confidence, a lot of determination. We are really happy to have him [Solskjaer] here and we hope we can continue [together], but the final decision isn't with us". PSG are the first big ticket of the new era and can be assured they will face a cauldron of noise.

But the Frenchman recognises that he must become more adept at sniffing out what Solskjaer calls the "ugly" goals, not least by better timing his runs in behind defenders, if - like Mbappe - he is to regularly contribute 20 or more goals a season.

Lindelof was forced to miss Saturday's 3-0 victory over Fulham at Craven Cottage after picking up a minor knock ahead of the game which made him a slight doubt for the visit of PSG on Tuesday night. Martial's superb solo goal in the 3-0 victory was his 11th of the campaign and evoked memories of Ronaldo's victor over Fulham in 2007.

It may also be the ideal time to run into an injury-ravaged PSG, with the world's most expensive player Neymar, Edinson Cavani and Thomas Meunier all sidelined by injury. "We are guessing a little bit how they will approach this game".
