  • Manchester United have extended Anthony Martial’s contract

England striker Rashford marked his 100th Premier League appearance with the only goal of the game at the King Power Stadium, collecting Pogba's clever lobbed throughball before drilling past Kasper Schmeichel.

Martial signed a new five-year contract during the week at Old Trafford.

"For a young man, he has a good footballing brain which, when coupled with his exceptional talent, makes for a player with an exciting future ahead of him".

Solskjaer hopes that goalkeeper David de Gea will follow Martial in signing a new contract. Ten games in and United continue to look revitalised under caretaker boss, Solsjkaer and very much in the hunt for a top four finish - but there's no doubt a defining run of fixtures now lie ahead as it starts to get very interesting across three competitions.

"Anthony is one of those naturally gifted players that any coach would love to work with", Solskjaer said.

The Norwegian confirmed Paul Pogba, who picked up a knock in Tuesday's 2-2 draw with Burnley, was fit for Sunday's Premier League trip to Leicester City while Martial could return after missing the last game due to injury.


Speaking after the announcement was made on Thursday, Martial stated: "I am loving my time at this club".

Victor Lindelof is turning in to a key player under Solskjaer so he'll keep his place in defence while Eric Bailly could come in for Phil Jones alongside the Swedish global.

"Solskjaer's come in, has put the tactics in of course, but has changed the mood of that football club overnight". I've told him that you've got to read and sniff maybe [get] some scruffy goals at times. "I don't know how far we are, but it's a statement from the club we want to keep our best players". I made my career and it was easy to sell the club to Anthony, but he knows what we're capable of.

United also play in a more advanced system with the full-back encouraged to get forward and wide into space. We've found out what strengths, weaknesses we've got.

"The club are working on a few players", he said. But the most hard thing for a manager is to get the best from his best players and this manager is doing it.

"When you see quality coming in, whether it is in your position or not, you want the team to do as well as we can".
