  • Paul Pogba of Manchester United scores the opening goal during the Premier League match between Fulham FC and Manchester United

Can United finish in the top four?

Manchester United's board have already made a decision to name Ole Gunnar Solskjaer their new permanent manager, according to reports.

Solskjaer's side will take on PSG in mid-week before Manchester United make the trip to Chelsea FC in the FA Cup fifth round next weekend.

Paul Pogba continued his ridiculous recent of form for Manchester United by bagging a brace in the side's 3-0 win over Fulham, however one young fan was happier with his performance after the whistle than during the 90 minutes.

On Saturday, February 9, the midfielder netted two goals in United's 3-0 comfortable win over struggling Fulham to fire the visitors to fourth on the Premier League standings.

"I thought we were fantastic for the last 80 minutes", he told reporters.


"There are big games coming up and that will decide where we are going to finish at the end of the season".

Just brilliant. For a guy who looked to be on his way out of the club under Jose Mourinho, he is one of the many who have been revitalized under new boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

"I don't really like to compare players, but I know that Paul is in good form, in a good place at the moment", Solskjaer said. We're improving, we're still getting better.

And as we head towards the final phase of the season, Fulham are sinking further into the relegation scrap, having acquired just seventeen points in 26 matches and are in desperate need of a miraculous turnaround if they are to maintain their top-flight status next season.

United will host Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday night in the first leg of their last-16 Champions League tie. Everyone's got to take us seriously now, you know?

He has covered the most ground of any player in his last two Premier League appearances (Sky Sports) and he is more than willing to do his fair share of dirty work - and some of Pogba's too. And finally, it was Pogba (2 goals), who eased United's transition in the final third with some excellent passing and hold-up play in and around the half-spaces.
