Progress for United in the Champions League would reinforce the case for Solskjaer to be named United's permanent manager and the 45-year-old has fond memories of the tournament.

Martial believes Solskjaer has got United playing a more attacking style of football than Mourinho - something the team are more comfortable with.

"That's how, when I played, the manager was always assuring us when you're a part of this squad you're important for us".

Manchester United defender Phil Jones has said the club were a "laughing stock" under Jose Mourinho.

Fulham boss Claudio Ranieri felt his players were too eager to force an equaliser following Pogba's 14th minute opener, which allowed Martial to exploit them on the break for the second goal.

Speaking in his post-match press conference, caretaker manager Solskjaer said that he wants his side to continue their ascent up the Premier League table.

"Well, we've got a coach who has got perhaps different intentions, a different approach, and we're trying to do what he's asking us to do, of course".

After sweeping Fulham aside with a 3-0 win at Craven Cottage yesterday for their 10th win in 11 matches under the Norwegian, he found it hard not to praise his team to the skies.

Martial on Solskjaer: The Manchester United star interacted with the media ahead of the game against PSG.

"Going into this game [with PSG] I don't think we could be in a better frame of mind with confidence and form so we are really looking forward to the next few games coming up".

United snapped up the Brazilian midfielder during the summer transfer window for a hefty £52m, but he is yet to make much of an impression at Old Trafford, having made just 15 appearances in all competitions so far this season.

A lot will probably depend on how the Red Devils fare in their crucial Champions League fixture against PSG next week as the Red Devils brace themselves for arguably their toughest challenge this season.

PSG's Kylian Mbappe set the benchmark for young French players, winning the World Cup at the age of 19.
