Solskjaer Manchester United stay possible after Molde give blessing

Adjust Comment Print

Manchester United travel to face Leicester City on Sunday afternoon looking to maintain their unbeaten record under caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Solskjaer added: "If I go back to Molde, I will do my best for them but it depends when I go back".

Luckily against Leicester there didn't seem to be such a problem and Manchester United's quick start saw them get all three points in the end. "It was a great defensive performance inside the box".


The England global has nine Premier League goals this season and scored in five of his last six games in the competition. "It was a attractive pass, great finish".

When asked by Robbie Savage if "anyone" could do the same job as Solskjaer, Ince - who was also sacked at Blackburn Rovers, MK Dons, Notts County and Macclesfield Town - said: "I believe they could, yes".

Didn't make any wonderful saves, as most of Leicester City's shots were directed straight at him.


After the win over Leicester, Rashford said: "I don't think anyone grows up wanting to be just a striker anymore, the game has changed". Marcus had a great chance from Luke Shaw's cross and finished the ball fantastically well when Paul [Pogba] played him through. Paul is a fantastic midfielder and he can always improve and he's one of those lads who wants to improve and he wants to see this game and wants to see what he could have done better.

Rashford blasted home his sixth goal since Solskjaer took charge after taking an exquisite touch to control Pogba's lofted pass and United held out to move above Arsenal into fifth and within two points of fourth-placed Chelsea.

Former Blackpool boss Paul Ince caused quite the stir over the weekend when he repeated his claim that he could do the same job as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is now doing at Manchester United.
