Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's put the Busby buzz back into Manchester United

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has yet to discuss any potential transfer targets for Manchester United in the current window but will offer an opinion when required.

"Obviously they have won a couple of games now and have more happy people around, but when you are winning, that is normal, it has to be like that".

"When I saw we were maybe 12 points behind, I decided not to think about it, go game-by-game and that's what we did", the Spaniard told Britain's Press Association.

Ander Herrera is not thinking about the top four despite Manchester United racking up a fourth straight win and finally keeping a clean sheet.

"We wanted to make David happy because he was a little bit disappointed the last games".

Rashford said: "Hard work was the key, we had to persist throughout the game".

Never in a million years was Paul Pogba going to be involved in Saturday's hope FA Cup match against Championship strugglers Reading.

"I don't know what input he had but when I got the call, of course, I texted the boss".

United are due to fly to Dubai after the game for a warm weather training camp, ahead of the trip to Tottenham on January 13, and Solskjaer was warned his squad to expect four days of hard work.

They and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer are having a laugh.

There's still a lot of work to be done - United are still six points away from the top four - but it has still been a very encouraging start.

Solskjaer is desperate to stay at Old Trafford and the 45-year-old has the backing of former manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

During a 13-year career at United, he made nearly 400 appearances for Sir Alex Ferguson, winning five Premier League titles, a Champions League, three League Cups and an FA Cup.

"We were slow in the first half but we controlled the game well, we concentrated and overall it was a very professional performance".

Perhaps more impressive has been the manner of those victories, with a bigger emphasis on attacking play resulting in 14 goals in that period.

They claimed he gave the Argentine striker much space and time to hit the ball which went straight into Alisson's net.

United had Eric Bailly sent off for a challenge on Ryan Fraser in the 79th minute and Solskjaer had no complaints about the decision, adding: "Eric won't complain either - he knows he's mistimed that one".

"That's what the fans want to see, that's what we want to see, and I think the players are enjoying themselves".
