Solskjaer salutes 'top, top performance' from in-form Pogba

  • Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has brought the best out of Pogba

Reading are struggling in the Championship but despite their position in the relegation zone and his respect for those at United - Sir Alex Ferguson is another he still talks to - O'Shea wants to lead his side into the FA Cup fourth round.

"Of course I won't, I don't want to", said the ever-smiling Norwegian yesterday morning (Singapore time), when asked after United's 2-0 English Premier League win at Newcastle United whether he would want to leave Old Trafford in May at the end of his planned interim spell. "You'd be happy with four wins from four - we haven't conceded from open play yet either", said Solskjaer. They are good players on the pitch, they have performed in the last three games - it is a very good team. "I don't think that it's something different between the away games and the home games in terms of support".

"Obviously they have won a couple of games now and have more happy people around, but when you are winning, that is normal, it has to be like that".

Today's game appears a hiding to nothing, and yet O'Shea, now 37, is determined to make the most of what will nearly certainly be his last visit to his old home as a player.

Newcastle is a fantastic club, fantastic crowd, you expect them to attack you but Victor Lindelof and Phil Jones were fantastic.

United will now move on to much tougher challenges, starting with the Premier League visit to Tottenham a week on Sunday.

United have been linked with a number of players in recent weeks, with speculation suggesting that a new centre-back could be on the agenda, and Solskjaer believes the club will have had a good idea of their next targets for some time.


Martin Dubravka has issued an apology to his Newcastle United team-mates and the club's fans after gifting Manchester United a goal in Wednesday's defeat. There'll be a few changes and they'll get a chance.

"I have been in touch with the gaffer quite a bit", he said.

"It is a team that has to be in the top four, that is very clear".

"The more you are here, the more you enjoy it".

"I wouldn't mention a darker side, but he would definitely get stuck in in training and put tackles in because he knew how competitive it was to stay in the team throughout the seasons".

"So the lads have heard they need to start brushing up on their general knowledge".

If Paul Pogba has indeed "got a knock", it could just as easily have come from one of the occasions when he threw himself to the ground for no reason at other times in the game.
