With manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer having just signed on fully with a three-year deal, United hopes to celebrate the signing with three points and continue to push Arsenal for that final Champions League spot. We'll take the three points. Today, we had two strikers who did it for us. We are nearly in the driving seat. The United manager made four alterations from the poor FA Cup loss at Wolves before the global break.

While on global duty with France Pogba said it would be a "dream" to play under Zinedine Zidane, who is again the Real Madrid head coach, and both Pogba and Rashford are reportedly targets of the Spanish club.

"After PSG, that was a mental challenge after the high of that", he said.

"We were fairly confident the boss was going to get the job", he said. He starts, with Nemanja Matic who after a string of poor games was United's best of a bad bunch against Wolves in the cup.

United had nothing to offer in attack until a superb low pass from Luke Shaw from his own half split Watford's defense and found Rashford, who capped the move with a clean finish.

But it was not a productive afternoon for Paul Pogba, and Solskjaer said he may have made a mistake by deploying the France worldwide in a deeper role.

"When I started with the reserves, I thought: 'Yeah I like this, I like this environment.' And of course when I saw what Guardiola did - he went from the reserves and then into Barcelona [top job], I wondered if could I do the same".

"Luke has got so much in his locker and I can't wait to see it blossom", he said.

The departure of Jose Mourinho has seen Paul Pogba transform from Lee Cattermole into Patrick Viera in recent weeks and that has to be down to the man management from the Norwegian gaffer in Manchester.

"OK, the last two games haven't gone to plan, [but] if you have the momentum that the team have at the moment, that's all you want".

"We managed to change the system a little bit and got into the game. He was a bit deeper, so that is something we may have to think about, to get him more involved".
