Wayne Rooney says Manchester United should go 'all out' for Mauricio Pochettino

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needs to make more tactical changes during a match says Duncan Castles

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.

Manchester United stretched their flawless run under caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to seven wins from as many games in all competitions with a 2-1 home defeat of Brighton & Hove Albion in the Premier League on Saturday (Jan 19). He has the world ahead of him and can be one of the best in the world.

This is a complete U-turn from Martial's stance in the summer preceding the 2018/19 season when his agent claimed that he wanted to leave the club following the player not seeing eye to eye with then coach Jose Mourinho.

"He's given him the confidence".

Rashford's effort shortly before half-time on Saturday doubled United's advantage on the day after Paul Pogba had opened the scoring from the penalty spot.

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.


"You can argue for many strikers but I'm glad he's in my team", Solskjaer said.

"We need to improve on quite a few things", Solskjaer said. At the beginning of the second half, we created some chances and we should have put the game behind us but, in any game, you get problems and challenged and Brighton more than other teams because they are so resilient and stubborn. Did his Man Utd team look and feel like a Sir Alex Ferguson's team at Old Trafford?

And when he was asked if he thought Rashford was now the best centre-forward in the division, Solskjaer said: "You can argue for many strikers but I'm glad he's in my team".

He continued: "We are delighted to get seven wins under Ole".

"As long as you take one game at a time and prepare well we should go into any game as winnable one, we have had some tough years at the club".
