However, midway through the first period, the Red Devils struck again, with Anthony Martial scoring a superb solo goal.

Chile global Sanchez joined Manchester United from Arsenal in January 2018 in a swap deal with Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

But then, after a dismal performance against Liverpool in December, Mourinho was sacked and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over as the interim United boss.

Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial were in top form as Manchester United continued their unbeaten run under Ole-Gunnar Solskjaer by securing a comfortable 3-0 win over Fulham.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer seems keen to keep expectations under control as his dream start as Manchester United's caretaker boss rolls on, but now and then he can not help but show his deserved satisfaction. Too bad for Old Trafford.

"We've got a coach with different intentions and different approach", said Martial, speaking ahead of Tuesday night's Champions League last-16, first-leg tie at home to Paris Saint-Germain.

United doubled their lead on 23 minutes when Martial showed shades of Cristiano Ronaldo's famous late victor at Craven Cottage in 2007.


"The biggest nights of my career have been Champions League nights", said Solskjaer, who scored the victor for United in the 1999 final which helped the club complete a treble, including the Premier League and FA Cup titles.

"At the moment I'm just concentrating on getting us up the table now we are fourth and let's hope we can stay there".

"This manager is asking me to attack more", Martial said at a press conference.

"Unfortunately for Neymar he is injured, but of course he is a quality player".

In his PSG pre-match press conference, he added: "No, but I would have said yes to the job if we didn't play PSG or in Champions League when United ring you take the chance and you think you can help them". "They have a few absentees and that should be to our advantage, but they have very good players to come in".

I am sure he will keep improving and he has been fantastic for me.
