Solskjaer sidesteps future questions ahead of blockbuster United games

"We have got a coach who has different intentions and we are trying to do what (Solskjaer) asks", he said.

Solskjaer has made himself the favourite to land the Old Trafford role full-time, a situation which could become clearer over the next two weeks as United face high-profile matches with Chelsea and Liverpool in the FA Cup and Premier League respectively.

"Before the coach arrived I was in the shadows, on the bench, and I accepted that", said Pogba.

Before Mourinho was sacked in December, United struggled under the Portuguese boss both with the results and style of play. That is my job, after all - to make the difference, to be more decisive. "We just need to keep improving and keep picking up points", said Jones.

Martial's goal at Fulham immediately drew comparisons to Ronaldo's famous strike at Craven Cottage in 2007 from Gary Neville and the club's supporters on social media.

It may also be the flawless time to run into an injury-ravaged PSG, with the world's most expensive player Neymar, Edinson Cavani and Thomas Meunier all sidelined by injury.

"He's now I think got a 50-60 per cent chance".

The abiding memory Solskjaer took from watching PSG's 2-1 defeat by Lyon the week before last was of "how lightning quick Mbappe is".

Manchester United's Anthony Martial scores a stunning goal in the 3-0 rout of Fulham at the weekend.

United were stuck in a rut under the management of Jose Mourinho, while the French champions topped the toughest section of the group stages. This time around we are guessing a little bit how they are going to come and play.

One needed only to witness the buoyancy in training on Monday (Tuesday NZT), when United opened their doors for half an hour - double the usual 15 minutes that is allotted - to recognise this is a team and club who have their mojo back.

Solskjaer has overseen a dramatic change in fortunes for United since replacing Mourinho in December, and will be looking for his 11th victory in 12 games when Paris St Germain visit Old Trafford in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
