Lukaku reveals how Solskjaer's analysis has transformed him

Paul Pogba and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Paul Pogba and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Manchester United look like a completely different side under Solskjaer and are playing the free flow football that they did under Sir Alex Ferguson.

"I've got to know everyone and had plenty of time to speak with them, but not much time to train", he said.

If Paul Pogba has indeed "got a knock", it could just as easily have come from one of the occasions when he threw himself to the ground for no reason at other times in the game. It's easy to forget that the World Cup, where he was so impressive in Belgium's run to the semi-finals, was only six months ago and he too is benefiting from working under a new, more positive manager.

Manchester United continued their good form under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with their fourth win in a row but it's not just the points that are making the difference, it's the goals- as one comparison with Jose Mourinho proves.

"We can get fitter and we have to do that through the training sessions here but Dubai is a good chance because now is the first time we get a week of work together", he said.

Spanish midfielders Juan Mata and Ander Herrera are nearing the end of their respective contracts at the end of the season and Solskjaer's views could well decide their futures at the club.

Fed Chief Jerome Powell Says He Won't Resign If Trump Asks
The head of the Fed , once confirmed by the Senate, can only be removed "for cause", not a policy disagreement. Powell responded with a terse "No" when asked if he would resign if Trump requested him to do so.

Reading had their opportunities to hurt United's defence but on each occasion their young forwards failed to make the most of it, either hitting a tame shot or not managing to take a strike at all. The Spanish playmaker sent the goalkeeper the wrong way from the spot.

Sanchez will need treatment ahead of the trip to Wembley, with the forward's first start under the Norwegian ending with a hamstring issue flaring up. Lukaku does manage to create a little space to shoot, but Jaakkola beats the effort away. Looking to add something for United to break with, Chong completed 91% of his passes and had 13 touches of the ball while also helping his side push high to pressure Reading.

Romelu Lukaku made it 2-0 after running onto a through ball by Alexis Sanchez, dribbling around the keeper and tucking it home. That's cruel on Reading.

71' - SAVE! Barrow beats Darmian and tees up Aluko, who sees his scuffed effort tipped round the post by Romero.

Summer signings Fred and Diogo Dalot are also expected to start for United against Reading.

That trio is likely to start on the bench against Tottenham, with Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard seemingly Solskjaer's preferred front three.
