Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Ready To Give Opinion On January Signings

Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic have formed an effective partnership

Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic have formed an effective partnership

"I think the more games you play, you mentioned he's played almost 150 games now, I think having a manager who's been a striker, who's been in those positions can speak to you in a way I guess maybe others haven't been able to".

De Gea is likely to be rested for Saturday's FA Cup third-round clash against Championship strugglers Reading, just as Paul Pogba is expected to be. "I don't think that it's something different between the away games and the home games in terms of support".

But, given the manner of Wednesday's victory, Solskjaer has the look of a manager at the top of his game after his decision to throw on Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez, two of the biggest under-achievers under former boss Jose Mourinho, after 63 minutes.

Speaking on Friday, he added: "I have not spoken to anyone".

On Friday, Solskjaer refused to quash suggestions that United could dip into the transfer market this month, but Berbatov belives the Red Devils are not in need of any new additions, despite links to a number of centre-back's.

"I'm sure they've got their targets", Solskjaer said.

And he's got off to the flawless start. "That's important for them because they need more game time".

"Some of them are itching now to play, of course. Obviously I'm here to voice my opinion and I'm sure we'll sit down, me and Ed, and see if they've got anything in the pipeline".

"If United keep performing like this until the end of the season - and especially if they can make the top four - it would be unbelievable if Ole doesn't get the job full-time".

After the game against Reading, United are off to Dubai for a training camp but Solskjaer denies that it will be a chance to get to know the players better. "However, all is forgiven, of course it is, because you move on in football, but the fact of the matter is, he's now performing how he should be and that is a massive plus for United".

"The FA Cup final is such a fantastic final".

"It's such a great bunch of players, atmosphere, but it's the next game, it's the next game, it's the next game, and I'm doing my job as long as I'm here".

If he is to make it five league wins on the trot, like Busby managed back in 1946, Solskjaer's first major test will come when United face Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley on Jan 13.
