Solskjaer has Manchester United quartet to rival Fergie’s best

Solskjaer has Manchester United quartet to rival Fergie’s best

Reading are struggling in the Championship but despite their position in the relegation zone and his respect for those at United - Sir Alex Ferguson is another he still talks to - O'Shea wants to lead his side into the FA Cup fourth round.

"[To] get to summer and people are talking about the way Man United are playing", he said, when asked what he believed would constitute "success" and be enough to earn the permanent role.

"I am sure they have got plans for this transfer window", Solskjaer said. Many of them have played four games on the bounce and are feeling the Christmas period so there might be a couple of changes, or maybe a few more, but we're ready for Reading.

"You have to give credit to our players because for 80 minutes they were in the game".

Solskjaer has had four games to assess his players after being parachuted into the job following Jose Mourinho's dismissal.

'I'm jealous of Ole because you look at the players and the team they have, the club that it is.

Goals from Sergio Aguero and Leroy Sane condemned the Reds to their first Premier League defeat of the season, though, they managed to pull one back via Firmino's header but it was just a mere consolation.

Pogba produced another excellent display during the 2-0 win at Newcastle United in midweek but the Frenchman picked up a knock in the second half after being on the wrong end of a horror challenge from Jonjo Shelvey. You can control how you approach the game and how you play. "It doesn't matter the manager during the week - they can win the matches". "But it is the next game, the next game and I am doing my job for as long as I am here".

"I do not know what happened, I just respect him and he has been very important to Portuguese coaches".

There's still a lot of work to be done - United are still six points away from the top four - but it has still been a very encouraging start.

Let us know in the comments. Alexis (Sanchez) made a great assist, so I think we're in really good form and we have to continue like this.

On a more hard night for Solskjaer, though, against stubborn Newcastle, it was a second-half substitution from the Norwegian that propelled United to their latest success as Lukaku scored with his first touch in the 64th minute. "The more chances you create, the more times you get the ball into the final third".
