Solskjaer is due to return to his job as Molde manager in the summer, but the 1999 treble hero is now bookmakers' favourite for a job he is understandably keen to stay in.

Under caretaker manager Solskjaer, Pogba has scored six goals in nine appearances, to help United make up ground in the race for top four places.

Phil Jones has signed an extended contract with Manchester United that will keep him at Old Trafford until 2023, as per the club's official website.

"I think it is about who we've got here", Solskjaer told a news conference on Friday. He knows the club, he knows what is expected, he knows the demands, he knows what supporters want.

Another centre-back, Victor Lindelof, has missed out on the trip to face Fulham, perhaps with the intention of being rested ahead of the UEFA Champions League tie against PSG.

If United beat Fulham on Saturday they will enter the top four for the first time since the opening weekend. "The last two months have been fantastic so consistency is now the key word".

"We have a laugh among ourselves quite often because I think finishing is something that comes naturally to me".

"It was good enough but we shouldn't just be happy with just good enough", he confirmed. "It reveals do we have the focus on what's important, which is always the next game, and can we forget about PSG. As long as we're winning games, that's all that matters".

"We have to move slowly because we are fifth at the moment", he said.

"The thing we laugh about is that I miss quite a few in training, whereas in a match, I may only get one chance and I manage to convert it".

And in Timothy Fosu-Mensah and especially Axel Tuanzebe, United have a promising new wave of defenders who may well have a better chance of developing into the played needed to create backline improvement at Old Trafford.

"You can not be a good leader or a manager without good players.so ultimately it's how they respond to what we tell them and they've been fantastic, so all credit to them".
