United came into the game eight league games unbeaten under interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and took the lead after just 14 minutes, with the rejuvenated Paul Pogba scoring a fine effort at the near post.

Find out how Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's players fared in our ratings. "It's a tough period but these are the games you want to play in, the games you want to be available for". This game was really important.

"We know there's a very, very good player there with Fred so hopefully he'll adjust to the English game because there's no doubt there's talent, absolutely no doubt".

'There is just a positivity about the place, to grind results out when we're not playing well, to play forward, to play with intent and objective - and that's exactly what we're doing.

"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".

"I understand the fans", said the Italian.

And finally, it was Pogba (2 goals), who eased United's transition in the final third with some excellent passing and hold-up play in and around the half-spaces.




Manchester United star Paul Pogba reduced a young fan to tears at the Craven Cottage after handing his jersey over to the supporter after his side's 3-0 win over Fulham.

But it was the 2017-18 campaign in which he came to worldwide attention, with his 15 Championship strikes instrumental in helping Fulham gain promotion to the Premier League via the play-offs.

"It's the next (game) so it's the biggest one - the next one is always the biggest one".

The 23-year-old has impressed in fits and starts since moving from Monaco to Old Trafford in 2015, becoming the most expensive teenager in history in the process.

'When you play against the best teams, you want to play against the players, ' Solskjaer said.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are now preparing for their crunch Champions League last 16 clash against Paris Saint-Germain at Old Trafford on Tuesday night.
