Manchester United star, Paul Pogba, may have gone through a miserable spell during Jose Mourinho's last days as the Red Devils manager. "But we've got Liverpool, we've got (Manchester) City (still to play), so we might have a say in what's happening at the top of the table", he said. However, eight wins from nine under replacement Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has seen the club climb up to fourth place for the first time since the opening day of the season.
United's run of form has seen them be unbeaten in 11 games in all, with two wins coming in the FA Cup, only failing to beat Burnley but even that game didn't halt their momentum as they came from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 in a result that must have felt nearly like a win. "I told my players that it's important to show our fans we're alive, we try to do our best until the end". It was tough for everyone involved. I've said it in the past: we've not achieved anything yet, we're under no illusions but we're heading in the right direction.
Manchester United finally moved into the top four yesterday, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer isn't planning on relinquishing that place any time soon. It's a big statement from where we were.
And as we head towards the final phase of the season, Fulham are sinking further into the relegation scrap, having acquired just seventeen points in 26 matches and are in desperate need of a miraculous turnaround if they are to maintain their top-flight status next season. Consistency is key in any sport and it's no different here.
United continued their blistering form under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with a 3-0 win over Fulham in the Premier League on Saturday with Paul Pogba netting a brace and Anthony Martial also getting on the scoresheet.
"When I played, the manager was always assuring us that when you're a part of this squad, you're important for us".
He will be seeking to continue with his exploits when United host Paris Saint-Germain for the first leg of the round of 16 in the Champions League.
