Martial’s stunning solo effort caps United’s easy win over Fulham

Martial’s stunning solo effort caps United’s easy win over Fulham”

Ander Herrera went close after the break but Sergio Rico saved, then United sealed their win as Juan Mata won a penalty kick after he was fouled clearly by Denis Odoi.

They settled for a 3-0 win in the end and Solskjaer was able to keep Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard on the bench before United welcome PSG to Old Trafford for the first leg of their last-16 Champions League tie on Tuesday night.

"But my job description was, until the summer, get us playing in a certain way, get the mood back, get results - of course, I love every single minute of it and I'll take whatever comes when it comes". His first touch was nearly always heavy and he had just one shot throughout, a headed miss. That's what we're trying to do at the moment.

The Norwegian said: "We have [games against] Liverpool and City so we might have a say in what is happening at the top of the table".

Asked if this was ideal preparation for facing PSG, Solskjaer said: "Yes, I would have to say so because it's a tough place to come".

Although it was a tense affair, Solskjaer believes the fightback proved that his side have character and determination.

"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". That is a great test of character. All of a sudden, Ole's come in and he's put his arm around everyone and said "we're Manchester United, we're a team".

While United's supporters revelled in watching the legendary figure in the dugout mastermind another victory, Fulham's fans booed Claudio Ranieri down the tunnel after the final whistle.

"We lost games when I played".

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. We lost at home to Middlesbrough at home in the treble-winning season over the Christmas period. You've just got to be ready when you get the chance. "And this club always bounces back".

Anthony Martial scored Manchester United's second goal in a comfortable 3-0 win over Fulham on Saturday afternoon, via a stunning solo run.
