Man United were a 'laughing stock' under Mourinho - Jones

Man United were a 'laughing stock' under Mourinho - Jones

Find out how Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's players fared in our ratings.

Manchester United continued their sensational unbeaten run under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Saturday afternoon, mounting a decisive 3-0 victory away at Fulham.

The Red Devils turned to their former striker to take over the reins from Jose Mourinho in a temporary role following the Portuguese coach's dismissal after a 3-1 loss at Liverpool FC in December.

Indeed, United have won 10 of their 11 matches under Solskjaer, including eight of their last nine in the Premier League to move into fourth position in the table.

"We might have been a bit of a laughing stock at the beginning of the season but we're certainly not now".

Rashford was joined among the substitutes by Jesse Lingard and Alexis Sanchez but there was no place for Fred despite his presence in the matchday squad for last weekend's win at Leicester City.

"It was tough for everyone involved". But it's about becoming stronger and seeing that through.

Usually, we'd reiterate that Pogba needs to produce more of these types of performances but he has been consistently brilliant since Solskjaer has held the reins.

Gary Neville compared Anthony Martial's goal at Fulham to one Cristiano Ronaldo scored years earlier, but whose was better?

United are a point clear of Chelsea and Arsenal, and nine points behind third-placed Tottenham after 26 Premier League matches. "Since Ole [Gunnar Solskjaer] came in we talked about this, we want to be at the top, in the top four", he told Sky Sports after the game. "We just need to keep improving and keep picking up points", said Jones.

It's a wonder the Fulham players aren't still trying to get him off their minds, Pogba really did run them ragged through large periods of the game.

While Tuesday night's Champions League clash with Paris Saint-Germain is now the focus of United's attention, the sight of Woodward and Glazer talking Solskjaer's agent Jim Solbakken will fuel rumours that the Norwegian is edging closer to being appointed as the club's next permanent manager.
