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.

"I've said it in the past, we've not achieved anything yet, we're under no illusions but we're heading in the right direction". "But we've got Liverpool, we've got (Manchester) City (still to play), so we might have a say in what's happening at the top of the table", he said. We've proven that in the last 10 or 12 games.

"When Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over from Jose Mourinho in December, the top four was the last thing on anyone's mind", he told the Daily Mail.

Paul Pogba scored twice, but it was Anthony Martial's goal that caught everybody's attention. "But like I said there is still a very long way to go and we have big games coming up and it's not going to be easy".

Solskjaer, with one eye on Tuesday's Champions League clash with Paris Saint-Germain, started with Romelu Lukaku in attack as in-form Marcus Rashford was dropped on the bench.

"We knew we could get into the top four".

It had been suggested that Solskjaer would need to overcome PSG in the Champions League to prove his credentials, but United's board have seen enough already - though the decision may still not be announced until the end of the season.

He has covered the most ground of any player in his last two Premier League appearances (Sky Sports) and he is more than willing to do his fair share of dirty work - and some of Pogba's too.
