Rashford arguably league's best striker with Kane out - Solskjaer

Manchester United forward Alexis Sanchez

Marcus Rashford is making a case to be considered the best striker in the Premier League, according to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Pogba and Mourinho clashed at times this season, with the France worldwide told he'll never captain the club again one stage, while there was also a heated debate on the training pitch after a Carabao Cup loss to Derby.

The 2-1 win, combined with Arsenal's 2-0 win over Chelsea sees Manchester United remain in sixth, but move to within three points of Maurizio Sarri's side, despite having been 11 ahead when Solskjaer took over.

The 21-year-old scored his seventh goal in his last 10 games as Manchester United beat Brighton 2-1 to maintain Solskjaer's ideal start as Old Trafford boss.

Pascal Gross pulled one back but Solskjaer was still able to achieve the feat of becoming the first United manager to win his first six league games in charge.

Young went on to admit that Solskjaer had helped to bring some confidence back to the Manchester United squad following the sacking of Jose Mourinho back in December.

The Belgium worldwide has made three substitute appearances in the Premier League, scoring twice, as Solskjaer prefers a front three of Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard.

"I want players to be confident but not be complacent and take their foot off the pedal because that's a big difference for me".

"You start with work rate". During this spell, the 20 time league champions have scored 17 goals and conceded just 3. I thought we played some great stuff at times. "I think he found it hard under Mourinho".

"He made a chance for Jesse (Lingard) and I can not believe how Jesse didn't score on that chance at the back post".

"But the scary thing with Marcus, when he runs at you with the ball he's impossible to defend and I reminded him to keep doing that, to just get the ball and run at defenders".

"I can't complain can I? It's been a roller coaster and it's class to be here".
