Manchester United were strong in the first half against Fulham, as Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial scored in quick successions to give the side a lead.

The England worldwide has scored nine Premier League goals this season, six of which have come since Solskjaer took over in December. Martial picked up and a goal and an assist on Saturday, has two goals in his last three matches and now has 11 on the season.

Anthony Martial seem like the biggest win for United in 2019.

The 45-year-old has been able to rejuvenate the likes of Pogba, Herrera and Matic, all of who were heavily criticized under Jose Mourinho and are now a key part of Manchester United's starting lineup.

"But my players are very.... not anxious, but they want to score immediately to draw the match and against big teams that is hard and we conceded to them the counter-attack".

"We all know that there has been a sea change, a huge improvement in a lot of the Manchester United players since the arrival of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and Rashford is one of the main men in that".

The 31-year-old shooting guard is a reliable deep threat, shooting 36.8 percent from 3 this season and 38 percent for his career. Known for his 3-point shooting, Anderson had a breakout season with the in 2013-14, when he averaged 19.8 points.

"There is always an element of risk but if you don't risk you don't win", Solskjaer told Sky Sports.

Pogba appeared happy with the result but remained focused on his side's busy schedule ahead.

While Matic offered the physical presence as well as the aggression in the holding midfield role, it was Herrera, who recycled the ball and rotated possession numerous times throughout the course of the game. All have been exceptional under his management, but Pogba was the standout on a blustery winter's afternoon at one of English football's finest grounds.

"If the cup final was tomorrow then he'd be playing and probably Lukaku would be on the bench, so I think he's done remarkably well under Solskjaer, a lot of the players have".

"We were very far behind and now we get back to the top four but there's still a long way to go with big games coming up so it won't be easy."
He continually searched for space and there was plenty to be found against a ponderous, confidence-sapped Fulham whose own fans questioned whether their manager Claudio Ranieri knew what he was doing. Paul Pogba has already been involved in a record number of goals and Rashford has been in prolific form too. "He came into the dressing room".
