Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made it 10 wins out of 11 as caretaker manager of Manchester United on Saturday with a dominant 3-0 victory over Fulham at Craven Cottage.
Paul Pogba powered us ahead on 14 minutes following a through ball from Anthony Martial before the forward scored a superb solo effort himself less than 10 minutes later. Pogba scored from the penalty spot midway through the second half to move us into fourth position in the Premier League table ahead of Chelsea’s trip to Manchester City later today.
Speaking in his post-match interview, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer praised Anthony Martial for his goal and his ability to both dribble and score. The boss told MUTV:
“I didn’t think about [the comparable Ronaldo goal in 2007] but Anthony in free flow is a great sight. His balance is fantastic, he is very strong, he shrugs defenders off and he is quick. He is a very, very good finisher and I think that goal won us the game. I think we were in complete control after that.”
Anthony Martial put in an excellent first half display, terrorising the Fulham back three who have now shipped 15 goals in their last six league outings, losing five of those. Claudio Ranieri’s side remain seven points adrift of safety with 12 games to play.
