Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: Manchester United attitude vs Leicester was spot on

  • 0:32                                            Claude Puel has defended his work at Leicester following criticism from fans

"He's a big personality, Jose, he would have been bullying some players that didn't take to that".

"The players are making each other better", Solskjaer said, asked about the transformation in Rashford and midfielder Paul Pogba, a scowling symbol of discord during the Mourinho era who is now creating goals at will.

Herrera feels United now have a system which plays to their strengths, telling reporters: "Paul is feeling free because Nemanja [Matic] and me and the centre-backs are all the time controlling the opponents' attack, even when we have the ball". We can find the gaps in between the defenders and the gaps between the lines, that's something we're really working on, because we don't want to be a predictable team. So now, everything is going very well, everyone is playing at their level.

Spurs are now in the race for the Premier League title.

England striker Rashford marked his 100th Premier League appearance with the only goal of the game at the King Power Stadium, collecting Pogba's clever lobbed throughball before drilling past Kasper Schmeichel.

Solskjaer's side have dropped points only once under him - a 2-2 draw with Burnley - and are now firmly aiming for the top-four spot that would give them Champions League football next season.

Although the goal came early in the first half, United failed to create many clear chances for the remainder of the game, meaning it was a nervy watch for much of the second half.

"In the Premier League it's impossible to go unbeaten from when the manager came, to have 25 or 30 games unbeaten", he said.

The Old Trafford faithful have had to sit back and watch the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Harry Kane get all the plaudits in recent years and perhaps rightly so but that can now afford to shout from the rooftops about their star duo.

"And the players are believing in him, they're believing that he's believing in them".

"The best way to prepare for the PSG game is to try and win away at Fulham and that's the way I think".
