I still think there's no need to announce anything today because the minute Ole gets the job, it'll be, 'Right who are you going to sign?

Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial were in top form as Manchester United continued their unbeaten run under Ole-Gunnar Solskjaer by securing a comfortable 3-0 win over Fulham.

"You've got to trust the players because the league is vital for us, but it's a chance for them to say, "I should play on Tuesday".

And Solskjaer agreed the defeat of Claudio Ranieri's side was the flawless warm-up, telling reporters: "I would have to say so because it's a tough place to come and we gave them the first 10 minutes, maybe played into their hands, some counter-attacks, they put the ball into the box a few times but then, after we scored the first goal, we played a fantastic last 80 minutes".

Solskjaer said he had met United owner Avram Glazer after the game, but he wouldn't be drawn on whether they would have any further meetings to discuss his future at the club. "He came to the dressing room".

Any delay to Gazprom's push to complete construction of Nord Stream 2 in 2019 could weaken Moscow's hand in those negotiations. However, in November 2018, only 69 out of 751 Members of the European Parliament signed a letter against Nord Stream-2.

Solskjaer took a slight liberty by rotating his squad against Burnley in United's last home game - dropping Herrera out in place of Andreas Pereira - and it may be no coincidence that was the only game of the Norwegian's reign that United have failed to win. "We've done really well in the 11 games we've played, but that's down to the team effort", he said. "But he has such an aura that, as soon as he opens his mouth, all the players were silent, sat down and listened, and today I realise how lucky I was to play under him, that's one of the great sources of pride in my career".

Ryan Babel, in particular, was often guilty of taking a series of bad first-touches, which robbed Fulham of the opportunity of initiating numerous counter attacks while Luciano Vietto also missed a golden opportunity in the very first minute of the game. "That's the real problem".

"The fans are nearly in some ways determining the outcome for the board, because you can't go against that support, that fan base is incredible, it's huge and they love Solskjaer".

"I understand the fans".

"At the moment I'm just concentrating on getting us up the table now we are fourth and let's hope we can stay there".
