Solskjaer laying groundwork for next season at Man Utd

Jesse Lingard celebrates scoring against Arsenal in the FA Cup

I have already outlined why I believe United aren't a certainty for a clean sheet in this one, which is why I like Rashford to score, United to win and BTTS. The Red Devils are coming off a huge 3-1 FA Cup win over Arsenal the last time out.

Champions League last 16 February 24 - Liverpool (H) February 27 - Crystal Palace (A) *All Premier League games unless otherwise stated Victory maintained Solskjaer's ideal record since replacing Jose Mourinho at the helm in December.

"I can make runs to be in the box, Paul [Pogba] can make runs to drive the ball forward, Ashley [Young], Luke Shaw is allowed to win the ball in the box and make a run even to the opponents" box.

Under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, it's like Herrera has found a new lease of life at United, in what could be called an ideal role for him.

"You try to sit him down and speak to him but he's a really hard-working, proud man, and he is really determined to prove his worth", he said.

United welcome PSG To Old Trafford on Tuesday 12th February in the first-leg of their blockbuster last-16 Champions League tie.

Manchester United are now in sixth place but just three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea FC as they seek Champions League qualification for next season.

"But we've got Alexis (Sanchez), Juan Mata, and Romelu Lukaku who haven't played so much lately, they're three players you have to jump ahead of".

United face a season-defining run of games in the coming weeks, facing Paris Saint-Germain twice, Liverpool, Crystal Palace, Arsenal and Manchester City all within the space of around five weeks.

'I don't know why his performances or quality is better or worse in these circumstances.

It was a dominant display by United, far more controlled than that of their 1-0 win in the other half of north London at Tottenham a fortnight ago. That's why we play. Manchester United have consulted Ole Gunnar Solskjaer over the club's transfer plans.

"So he's saying, 'Look, I'm the manager of the football team, you're no longer the captain as long as I'm here'".

"Ollie has said we want to be a team that controls the game but sometimes that's impossible".

Host David Prutton asked on The Debate: "Are we looking at a player now that's grown into the United leader and captain that they've been, in truth, crying out for".

'We're happy with the wins but we aren't satisfied with the overall situation.
