"I'm sure they've got their targets, I'm here to voice my opinion on that and I'm sure we'll sit down, me and Ed if we've got anything in the pipeline".

After the game against Reading, United are off to Dubai for a training camp but Solskjaer denies that it will be a chance to get to know the players better.

But rather than attempt to park the bus tomorrow, Gomes will treat the game like any other as he tries to impart his footballing philosophy on the Reading players.

Napoli star Kalidou Koulibaly and Roma's Kostas Manolas have now been linked with moves to Old Trafford, however, Solskjaer is not anticipating new arrivals in January.

NEWCASTLE, Jan 3 ― Ander Herrera said he is not thinking about a top-four finish even after Manchester United racked up a fourth straight win in the Premier League to edge closer to the Champions League qualification spots.

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.

Pogba produced another excellent display during the 2-0 win at Newcastle United in midweek but the Frenchman picked up a knock in the second half after being on the wrong end of a horror challenge from Jonjo Shelvey. "The next game is coming quickly though, and hopefully we can go through in the cup, and then we have Chelsea". "You can't control if it goes in off the post or out and things like that". "It doesn't matter the manager during the week - they can win the matches".

"It's such a great bunch of players, a fantastic atmosphere, but it's "the next game, it's the next game, it's the next game" and I'm doing my job as long as I'm here," he said.

Solskjaer's United have scored 14 goals since he took over and the interim boss says his aim has been to play the way he was taught during his 11 years as a player under Ferguson.

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.

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

He added: "When we prepare we always look and the strengths and weaknesses of our opponent and of course you have more stronger points when you talk about Manchester United".

Liverpool manager Adam Lallana is set to dump the Merseyside club this month after failing to get much game-time this season.
