EPL: Marcus Rashford scores as Manchester United beat Leicester 1-0

  • Manchester United's Marcus Rashford celebrates his goal with Luke Shaw and team mates

Not many people thought Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would be the next Manchester United manager before he replaced Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford and even when it happened few people thought he'd be there past May.

The Swedish centre-half, who initially struggled following his 2017 move from Benfica, looks revitalised under Solskjaer and his composure against Leicester alongside Eric Bailly earned the pair a massively complimentary comparison from Crooks.

After that comes an FA Cup fifth-round trip to Chelsea on February 18, which is quickly followed by an Old Trafford showdown with Premier League leaders Liverpool as United do battle on three fronts this month. And it is under the Norwegian, that Paul Pogba has returned to his best, scoring six goals and providing five assists in the last eight Premier League games. "Let's go game by game, because if you lose one game you regret". "We are benefitting", said Lukaku in an interview with Canal. I'm not comparing. We are very happy with him, everyone feels free.

While the traveling supporters went back with joy, the same can not be said about the fans of Leicester City.

So while Solskjaer is getting credit for transforming United's attack - and there is no doubt he has liberated the talented attackers at his disposal - he also deserves praise for the sterling work he has done with a defence that was leaky under his predecessor.




"But we don't know how he deals with adversity - when things start going wrong, when results dip and when some of his players maybe start biting back. I think playing regularly has brought the best out of Ander".

'I got the player of the year two years ago.

The Brazilian endured a hard six months under Mourinho and confided in Manchester City ace Fernandinho about his early struggles in the north-west. I feel very good at the moment, I feel in form, I can run a lot and recover the ball and I feel good when I have it on my feet.

"With nine wins from 10 games as United's interim boss, Ole has been absolutely fantastic".
