Marcus Rashford wins Manchester United's 'Player of the Month' award for January

Marcus Rashford wins Manchester United's 'Player of the Month' award for January”

The Red Devils have been in impressive form since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over the reins of the club from Jose Mourinho in December.

Although the 2-2 draw against Burnley was a minor setback, a ten game unbeaten run in all competitions consisting of away wins against the likes of Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal is nothing to be sniffed at...

Furthermore, due to his time at the reserves, Solskjaer has actually coached players like Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard before - so he had a close connection and understanding with the squad before he had even arrived.

The first big change should be dropping Marcus Rashford to the bench and playing Romelu Lukaku up front.

And, if Solskjaer is able to navigate the Red Devils past Paris Saint-Germain into the last 16 of the Champions League, as well as finish in the top four of the Premier League (something that seemed impossible just a few months ago), United's top brass may decide that he's done enough to win the job outright.

While Manchester United's two infamous rivals Liverpool and Manchester City are fighting for the Premier League title, the Red Devils would do well to secure a place within the top-four spots of the Premier League 2018/19.

England and Manchester United's all-time leading goalscorer swapped Everton for MLS by signing a three-and-a-half-year deal with DC in June.

Former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane's inability to speak English fluently is thought to be a major stumbling block, whilst United are wary of installing another disciplinarian in former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte so soon after sacking Jose Mourinho.

Solskjaer's side face Fulham in the league on Saturday.

"Marcus and me have been setting targets for each other to challenge ourselves", Lingard said.

Solskjaer is yet to receive a permanent job at the Old Trafford.

And Wayne Rooney feels the Norwegian deserves a chance if they don't lure Mauricio Pochettino from Tottenham. I want to see my players fight until the end. He's shown all the players are with him. He was a fantastic player.
