Solskjaer: Manchester United team selection a 'risk' at Fulham

Share

Sessegnon, 18, had a fantastic season in the Championship last season, scoring 16 goals and setting up another 8, in an effort to help Fulham gain promotion to the Premier League.

United will be looking to make it 10 wins from 11 games under Solskjaer when they tackle Fulham, with an interim manager yet to come unstuck across all competitions.

Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial were in top form as Manchester United continued their unbeaten run under Ole-Gunnar Solskjaer by securing a comfortable 3-0 win over Fulham.

"It's quick football and we've seen the players improve - Pogba has been a different player, Rashford looks superb up front".

Pogba was supposed to be United's main man in the biggest games, such as against Paris Saint-Germain at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

"But my players are very.... not anxious, but they want to score immediately to draw the match and against big teams that is hard and we conceded to them the counter-attack". 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. We just want to stay there [in the top four] and when we need three points, we get the three points like today. Of course, they're all happy after winning the game.

Appointed a month before Solskjaer, the Italian was subjected to chants of "you don't know what you're doing" early in the second half by the irked Craven Cottage faithful.

But it was not long before Pogba decided it was time to take charge in the middle of the park.

As well as setting up Pogba for the opener, Martial netted one of his own, meaning he has now been involved in 50 Premier League goals. "I speak to him like I do with the others, that's management".

They added another when strong work from Romelu Lukaku led to Le Marchand bringing down Juan Mata just inside the box.

He signed a new long-term contract and immediately started proving once again how much he enjoys playing for Manchester United.

In the center forward position, Rashford has been fantastic under Solskjaer but he needs to rest and we can expect Belgian global Romelu Lukaku to return to the starting XI.
