Rashford on same level as Ronaldo, Rooney, says Solskjaer

Rashford on same level as Ronaldo, Rooney, says Solskjaer

"At times we did and it's a great three points".

'In the Premier League, it's always hard, ' said Matic.

"As long as you take one game at a time and prepare well we should go into any game as winnable one, we have had some tough years at the club".

"We need to improve on quite a few things", Solskjaer said.

"You see some of the young players he has brought through at Tottenham, at Southampton that have gone on to play for the national team, so I think he ticks every box in terms of his quality as a coach, but also his willingness to give youth a chance". We battled through at the end, to be honest, but I believe it was deserved. Their next three opponents in the league are Fulham, Watford and Burnley, and Hughton knows his side will be expected to pick up points. "I think that the manager is happy with the first 75 minutes, but the last 10-15 minutes we dropped a little bit".

Manchester United made it seven wins from seven in the first month of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's reign and the caretaker boss said he will remember his stint in charge "for the rest of my life".

While the Serbian maintained a strong relationship with the former United manager, the improvements in many team-mates since his departure has been striking.

During the strike an Iranian passenger plane, heading to Damascus, was forced to return to Tehran. It added that all the Israeli missiles were destroyed before reaching their targets.


Paul Pogba opened the scoring through a penalty he won but it was the youngster who grabbed the "insurance" goal.

Rooney, the club's all-time top scorer with 253 goals, had scored 59 in his first 150 appearances, while Ronaldo had scored 31, and Solskjaer said Rashford was playing at a similar level to the duo at the same stage in their careers.

"You can argue for many strikers, but I'm glad he is in my team", he said (via BBC Sport).

Cascarino told talkSPORT: "Is it a coincidence that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's now got his £90m striker having to fight for his shirt with a young kid who, by the way, is exceptional and looks a far better player than we saw earlier on this season".

United had the opportunities to put the game out of sight before Pascal Gross struck to cause a nervy conclusion. At the start of the second half, we could have finished the game with great chances.

He has enjoyed a dream start to life at the helm, and is yet to suffer a setback of any kind, but there is a desire within the squad he has inherited to achieve even more. "The way he strikes the ball is good enough".
