Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says they 'can win every game'

He has already cut the gap with the Premier League's top four to six points after four successive wins and will kick off their FA Cup campaign against Championship strugglers Reading on Saturday(live on ESPN+ from 7.30 ET on Saturday).

He made clear after the victory at Newcastle this week that he would love to stay in the job beyond the summer, when his loan from Norwegian club Molde is set to expire, but said on Friday (Jan 4) that he had not spoken to executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward about that.

"He's influenced me with everything to be fair", Solskjaer said last month, per Manutd.com. I think we faced a very organised and very tough team.

"Even when we are not playing great, we have the feeling that we can win the game".

Today's game appears a hiding to nothing, and yet O'Shea, now 37, is determined to make the most of what will nearly certainly be his last visit to his old home as a player.

A rejuvenated and resurgent United side has won all four games under Solskjaer so far, a feat previously only achieved by Sir Matt Busby - who won a club record five games on the spin in 1946 to kick off his tenure.

Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez has warned the rest of the Premier League not to write off Manchester United just yet.

'The way the game was going, some fans were a bit upset and did not want to be there. "I think they should keep him".

The United boss has revealed Romelu Lukaku will be recalled up front after scoring off the bench in the last two games while Alexis Sanchez will also start against Reading after making his injury comeback off the bench in midweek.

And a late strike from Rashford saw Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side win 2-0 at St James's Park. "They've all performed and as long as they perform they should get a chance but that's my job, to improve players and individuals".

United have been linked with a number of players in recent weeks, with speculation suggesting that a new centre-back could be on the agenda, and Solskjaer believes the club will have had a good idea of their next targets for some time.

Rashford said: "Hard work was the key, we had to persist throughout the game". You've had a new manager come in and bring in his signings, another comes in, a couple more signings, a couple more go out.

Tahith Chong and Mason Greenwood are huge youth prospects from the academy and now would be the ideal time to hand them their first-team debuts.
