       Aleksandar Mitrovic is planning a a miraculous recovery by Fulham

The Red Devils are in red hot form at the moment under Solskjaer and it will be intriguing to see how they fare in the tough fixtures after the game against the Cottagers.

Paul Pogba scored a brilliant goal from an nearly impossible angle, while Anthony Martial scored an excellent solo goal to double the lead for Solskjaer's men. He has three braces to his name just since Solskjaer came in and this one was completed with a precise penalty, but a handsome finish from a tight angle preceded it.

It was also reminiscent of another United goal at Craven Cottage over a decade ago, scored by Cristiano Ronaldo. We created two great chances to score a goal, but suddenly [Paul] Pogba scored, and I think: 'OK, stay calm and we can continue to play and to find a solution to draw the match.

"A hard February but we have high hopes and I think we are in a good spell, especially in terms of confidence".

"I've been in that situation a few times myself and it's about who grabs it".

Manchester United rolled to their 10th win in 11 games under caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with a 3-0 victory at Fulham on Saturday, climbing into the top four in the English Premier League for the first time since the opening weekend. It's a good sign, it gives confidence to the team. "We talked about this there's still a long way to go but we want to stay there". "Above all, we have to try to enjoy these games because these are the games we all want to play in and to enjoy". Lukaku started ahead of in-form Rashford, Juan Mata was there ahead of Jesse Lingard and Dalot and Phil Jones made half of the backline.

"We were very far away, but now we are back in the top four through good results". The Italian has only been in the job for three months but Fulham are now seven points from safety in the Premier League.

"The most pleasing thing was in the second half, the way we controlled it".

Chambers and Aleksandar Mitrovic had chances during a rare Fulham period in the ascendancy, with Ryan Babel somehow hitting the post from close range after substitutes Alexis Sanchez and Scott McTominay went close at the other end.
