Rashford can be as good as Kane, says Man United boss Solskjaer


"We can talk about Harry Kane and his class, I'm sure Marcus has got the potential to get up there".

Phil Jones believes that Manchester United can underline the progress they have made under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer when they take on Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday. "There's so much attacking quality in both sides - Harry Kane, Anthony Martial, players who can score from nothing - that it's hard to see a clean sheet for either side".

"He is very exciting to work with and can become a top, top striker".

"We are not going to get as many chances to attack against these as we had before so when we have the ball, we have to be ready to play well with it".

"Of course we're going to be in a different club, because it's not the same to play in Wembley for the last two years almost".

Solskjaer has matched Sir Matt Busby's record by winning his first five games at the helm of United, though the consensus is this weekend's encounter represents his first significant test.

He added: "They feel so excited to be there and I think that's flowing from them on to the players".

Perhaps the biggest beneficiary of United's change in management has been Paul Pogba, though, with the Frenchman beginning to show the type of form we knew he was capable of.

The same paper report that United are in line for a £10m payout if Jose Mourinho takes up the reigns at Real Madrid following his Old Trafford dismissal last month.

This is a wonderfully illuminating piece from Ducker - one of the best United journalists out there - which details the way in which Solskjaer, through little more than practical man-management, has reversed the tide of despair cast by Mourinho. Yes, I did. I can not hide my admiration and relationship with him. He was a very nice man to speak to and we had a nice chat. From the outside, he looks like that anyway. He is a fantastic goalscorer and one of the best in the world but I have got a couple that I am happy to work with.

"I think that's our strength as well, going forward and attacking, as a team when you look at us now the way we've played". No, nothing's changed. We just keep working every single day on improving the team here.

"In that case when I say we need, we need to find a different way to operate, between all, sharing ideas and trying to find different ways to adapt, the new sporting project".
