Next up for United is a trip to Fulham as the Red Devils look to move above Chelsea in the Premier League table, with the Blues not in action until Sunday, when they face Manchester City. But these big games coming up will determine where we end up.

Martial's scintillating run and finish was the pick of the goals on a blustery afternoon at Craven Cottage, where Pogba followed his impressive opener with a second-half penalty that sealed a comfortable 3-0 win that increases the pressure on struggling Fulham.

United were 11 points adrift of the Champions League places when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over in December but the 3-0 win over Fulham on Saturday lifted them into the top four for the first time since August.

Pogba later fired a warning to the chasing pack that they intend "to stay there", adding: "It feels great".

"It's tough being away from my family, of course, but it's a challenge every single day here because we play Fulham now, we need three points to get into the top four, then it's PSG, then Chelsea - it's just challenge after challenge".

"You've got to trust the players, because the league is vital for us but it's a chance for them to say "I should play on Tuesday". It's a good sign, it gives confidence to the team.

Paul Pogba has already been involved in a record number of goals and Rashford has been in prolific form too. "Paul can do that with his qualities".

While United's supporters revelled in watching the legendary figure in the dugout mastermind another victory, Fulham's fans booed Claudio Ranieri down the tunnel after the final whistle. "He came to the dressing room".

Solskjaer said that while there was a chance his tinkering could have backfired, his footballing philosophy was "if you don't risk, you don't win". Several times he told younger players like Diogo Dalot to get into a better position.

The decision to make six changes with Tuesday's Champions League last-16 first leg against Paris St Germain on his mind could have backfired in the capital, but Fulham and their terrible defence were no match for the visitors. A back four of Odoi, Le Marchand, Ream and Bryan is at least three quarters made of Championship players.
