Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hoping David De Gea's future is sorted by the club

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hoping David De Gea's future is sorted by the club

James Ward Prowse did equalise with a stunning free-kick but Lukaku's second goal of the game put United 3-2 ahead.

United play Southampton in the Premier League on Saturday, before their Champions League last-16 return tie with Paris St-Germain in France.

"The dressing room is bouncing at the moment".

Let us know in the comments. This has happened before, so many great comebacks. We have to do it away from home, but we have eight straight wins away from home.

Manchester United are using Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the face of their season ticket sales pitch for 2019-20 even though he might not be their manager.

Once the academy product was moved further upfield he showed his true talent and helped his side get on their way to secure an important three points.

Solskjaer has suffered just one defeat during his time in charge of the Old Trafford outfit - against PSG in the Champions League. "I've been part of that so many times myself", the caretaker boss said. We spoke about it at half-time and said get the ball in the box and play more forward because the Stretford End will suck it in for you.

Old Trafford bore witness to an electrifying encounter on Saturday afternoon, when Andreas Pereira's stunner and a thumping Romelu Lukaku strike cancelled out an outrageous first-half effort by Yan Valery.

"Character and belief, more than quality (were why they won)", said Solskjaer.

United started brightly in the North-West and Lukaku came close to opening the scoring as early as the third minute, with Angus Gunn having to get down well to his left to parry the Belgian's 10-yard effort away from goal.

Stuart Armstrong fouled Rashford inside the box in stoppage time but Paul Pogba missed from the spot when Gunn's trailing leg saved the goal-bound shot.

But the finale, which extended Solskjaer's unbeaten run in domestic action with United to 15 games, was much-needed after it appeared his team would drop points in the chase for a top-four finish. Just one minute after replacing the injured Alexis Sanchez, Diogo Dalot gave the ball to Pereira, and the Brazil worldwide curled a stunning effort into the back of the net to equalise on 53 minutes.

Just five minutes later the Brazilian's toe-poke found Lukaku inside the box and he shifted the ball onto his right foot to find the bottom left-hand corner of Gunn's goal to give the lead to Manchester United.

Valery picked up the ball and smashed the ball past David de Gea from 30-yards right into the top corner.

"In the first half, I think it could've been a penalty on Bertie (Ryan Bertrand) and for the second goal I think Lukaku was offside, so it's harsh, but that's football".
