Manchester United's form under interim manager Ole-Gunnar Solskjaer has been nothing short of incredible, with the Red Devils securing ten wins out of 11 games in all competitions under the Norwegian.

Anthony Martial scored Manchester United's second goal in a comfortable 3-0 win over Fulham on Saturday afternoon, via a stunning solo run. "There is still a long way to go, but we are there, and we want to stay there now", he told Sky Sports after the victory. Next is Paris St-Germain and then we have to keep trying to get three points in the league'.

Solskjaer, who has made his desire to be offered the job on a permanent basis no secret, suggested after that game how his side can still have a say in who takes the title home this season. The result is positive, and it was a good performance as a team.

Defeat for Fulham leaves them 19th in the table, with supporters jeering manager Claudio Ranieri's substitutions and with louder boos heard at full-time.

The odds are against the team with the worst defensive record in the division, with 58 goals conceded, pulling off a miraculous escape given that they are seven points adrift of 17th place with 12 games remaining.

He was also keen to emphasise that United's revived fortunes since he took over in December from Jose Mourinho were about the whole club's work and not just his own influence. The midfielder has been involved in more goals in Europe's top five leagues than anyone else in that time.

In the 23rd minute, Martial produced a moment of magic in keeping with United's scintillating counter-attacking traditions. "I speak to him like I do with the others, that's management". But he helped create the penalty that led to the third goal when he charged forward to pass to Juan Mata, who was bundled over inside the area by Fulham's Maxime Le Marchand.

"It feels great to win, that is what we wanted".

PSG are unlikely to prove to be as easy as an opponent as Fulham but Solskjaer was happy with how his players controlled the fixture nonetheless.
