Herrera has quietly become crucial to Solskjaer’s Manchester United vision

Anthony Martial has played himself into United’s starting line-up to face PSG

"We knew we could get into the top four".

Paul Pogba produced another superb display as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made it 11 games unbeaten since become Manchester United manager with a 3-0 win at Fulham.

A lot will probably depend on how the Red Devils fare in their crucial Champions League fixture against PSG next week as the Red Devils brace themselves for arguably their toughest challenge this season. We've done really well in the 11 games we've played but it's down to the team effort.

Since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over as manager of Manchester United there's been no more effective player than Paul Pogba.

"I thought we were fantastic for the last 80 minutes", he told reporters. "Of course, we're all happy after winning the game".

And Solskjaer agreed the defeat of Claudio Ranieri's side was the ideal warm-up, telling reporters: "I would have to say so because it's a tough place to come and we gave them the first 10 minutes, maybe played into their hands, some counter-attacks, they put the ball into the box a few times but then, after we scored the first goal, we played a fantastic last 80 minutes".

And as we head towards the final phase of the season, Fulham are sinking further into the relegation scrap, having acquired just seventeen points in 26 matches and are in desperate need of a miraculous turnaround if they are to maintain their top-flight status next season.

The duo may have felt unlucky not to have been given a game at Fulham yesterday when Solskjaer made six changes to his team with the Champions League tie against Paris Saint-Germain around the corner. Everyone's got to take us seriously now, you know?

Herrera - perhaps more than any other Red - has helped Pogba flourish by offering him a defensive shield, as well as forming part of a strong midfield block which has created stability in front of a defence which has creaked at times this season.

Pogba was an unused substitute in Mourinho's last two league games but he has now scored eight goals in his last eight appeareances.
