Ole Gunnar Solskjaer tips Manchester United for glory in Europe

It was notable that when Solskjaer made United's first substitution, bringing on Alexis Sanchez for Martial, the manager spoke with Pogba, offering instruction by the side of the pitch.

Since the start of season in Premier League and Champions League, Pogba has 12 goals and 10 assists, which is a hand in 22 goals, just one short of his personal best.

His showing at Craven Cottage was arguably his finest.

United's next opponents are Paris Saint-Germain, in the Champions League round of 16, and Solskjaer suggested United cannot only overcome the Parisians - who are missing Neymar and possibly Edinson Cavani, who was injured scoring PSG's victor against Bordeaux yesterday - but are capable of going all the...

Sprint sues AT&T over ā€˜5G Eā€™ icon as marketing claims heat up
I have personally already encountered AT&T customers who believe their Samsung phone now has 5G. T-Mobile also hit out at the firm, accusing it of "duping customers" with the move.

It was a win which lifted United back into the top four since August - a remarkable achievement given the way United had looked to be struggling for form and confidence in the final months of Mourinho. Such numbers are truly incredible, especially since we know Jose Mourinho was ready to bench him due to issues between the two of them.

The 25-year-old is seen firing inch-perfect diagonal balls to Diogo Dalot, dissecting the Fulham defence with through balls and breezing past the opposition midfield with his footwork. Since then, the Red Devils are yet to lose a game and they have dropped just 2 points across all competitions thereby proving that Manchester United still have it in them to compete on the biggest stage.

When he was just about threatening to take the game away, de Grandhomme smacked one straight to covers in skipper Rohit's hands. MS Dhoni (20*) and Pant (40*) then knocked off the remaining runs easily to lead India home with seven balls remaining.

We would signpost some of the very best moments but Pogba barely put a foot wrong beyond the first 30 minutes. Solskjaer does it for the real need of doing it, keeping everyone both happy and fresh, while planning for more important matches.

Perhaps above all the attributes that were impressive, though, was his passing and that's a large part of what makes Pogba such an entertaining player to watch.

Solskjaer and Pogba have some tough times ahead though.

"He's been a threat in the first 20 minutes like you wouldn't believe".

Obaseki Advocates Zero Tolerance, Decisive Action To End Female Genital Mutilation
