Manchester United interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with forward Anthony Martial

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and co will be looking to continue their fine run and capitalise on situations where Chelsea drop points, to enter into the top four, which looks like a realistic target.

Not only have United won eight of his nine matches at the helm, the football they have played has been a world away from that produced by Mourinho's team.

Leicester pushed for an equaliser but just couldn't find a way past David de Gea in the United goal.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer thinks his chances of landing the Manchester United manager's job on a full-time basis depends entirely on the players.

What does it mean?

With this victory Manchester United have 48 points, two less than Chelsea, and one more than Arsenal, who were beaten by Manchester City in their recent Premier League fixture. To get the backing from them was fantastic.

Sanchez worked hard down the left and made quite a few decent runs, but these went mostly unseen by his team-mates.

Sanchez made the heavily publicised move from Arsenal to Manchester United last January, as United fans wait for someone to finally become a worthy successor to Cristiano Ronaldo in the prestigious number 7 shirt.

United were three minutes away from a shock home defeat against Burnley on Tuesday night, but a Paul Pogba penalty and a Victor Lindelof injury-time strike sealed a 2-2 draw for Solskjaer's men at Old Trafford.

Didn't make any unbelievable saves, as most of Leicester City's shots were directed straight at him.

Marcus Rashford scored the only goal of the afternoon after Paul Pogba intercepted a loose pass by the Foxes and played the striker in with a beautifully weighted ball over the top, which was promptly slotted into the bottom corner.

At the end of the day, Leicester have now picked up just one point in their previous four league matches.

High praise indeed. Jamie Carragher believes that Manchester United need to make Marcus Rashford their main man up front, claiming that he is a player that can lead you to major honours.
