A brace from Paul Pogba and a sensational solo goal from Anthony Martial were enough for the Premier League's form side, who have picked up 25 points from nine games since replacing Jose Mourinho with Solskjaer in December.

Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial both scored superb goals in the first half, as Fulham just couldn't cope with United's rapid counter attacks.

Manchester United interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer smiles before the Premier League match with Fulham at Craven Cottage in London February 9, 2019.

"You look at [Mauricio] Pochettino, who is the obvious choice, it looks like he wants to stay with a big project at Tottenham".

"But my job description was, until the summer, get us playing in a certain way, get the mood back, get results - of course, I love every single minute of it and I'll take whatever comes when it comes".

"[But] there are so many players; Pogba, Rashford, Lukaku, Mata, Sanchez".

"At the moment I'm just concentrating on getting us up the table", said Solskjaer. "He came to the dressing room". The last-ditch, winning games at the end, winning points at the end, that was fantastic.

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

"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".

This was the latest in a long line of concerning displays by Fulham, who look bereft of confidence and ideas at a vital stage of the season. This game was really important.

"We are in a unsafe situation [in the league] and I told my players that it's important to show to our fans we are alive and try to do our best until the end". PSG would be the real test for the Old Trafford club as the French side has been in terrific form and could be the toughest opponent so far for Solskjaer.

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.
