Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has dropped a huge hint about his Man Utd future

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has dropped a huge hint about his Man Utd future

Find out how well Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's players performed as Manchester United beat Southampton 3-2 at Old Trafford in the Premier League.

When Southampton went 1-0 up in the first half after a sensational goal from outside the box by Yan Valery, I was sure that the curse was going to continue.

The home side continued to pepper the Saints' goal with Gunn having to make a timely block from Lukaku, but the visitors managed to create an opportunity of their own with Jannik Vestergaard missing the target with a header.

Lukaku's first goal was cancelled out by a magnificent set piece from James Ward-Prowse, but Lukaku struck in the closing minutes to secure a hard-fought three points for his side.

"We knew we had to win the game today and did it", Lukaku added.

"We maybe found a better position for him than as a number six, more of an eight or 10".

European Union ready to give United Kingdom more guarantees Irish backstop is temporary
The Prime Minister has told MPs they will have a "meaningful vote" on her withdrawal plans by 12 March. He added that the extension would have to be unanimously approved at a summit on March 21.

Manchester United will now turn their attentions towards their Champions League trip to Paris Saint-Germain in the last 16 on Wednesday night. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has transformed the mood and along with that United's fortunes and what they will need now is a strong finish to the season to clinch a top 4 spot. "We are ready for the challenge".

United were given the chance to extend their lead in the last minute after Stuart Armstrong was adjudged to have fouled Marcus Rashford in the box.

Angus Gunn saved Pogba's penalty, the France worldwide failing to convert from 12 yards for the third time in the Premier League this season.

"I've missed penalties, he's a confident boy, he wants to go and take the next one, you want that character".

Solskjaer has changed the mood at Old Trafford over the past couple of months but with players like Young still on the pitch there is no doubt that the Norwegian still has plenty of work to do, if he is indeed the man to take the club back to the pinnacle of the Premier League.
