Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho as head coach of United in December and has overseen a complete turnaround in fortunes at the club. "Above all, we have to try to enjoy these games because these are the games we all want to play in and to enjoy".

However, he stayed put with the Whites and whilst he hasn't exactly set the top flight alight, the 18-year-old has shown enough with his two goals five assists to suggest that he has a big future ahead of him at the highest level.

Indeed, Solskjaer and Rashford won January's manager and player of the month, the first time United have achieved such a double since Alex Ferguson and Dimitar Berbatov in January 2011.

TUKO.co.ke earlier reported that Man United stretch their unbeaten run under interim manager Solskjaer to 11 games after beating Fulham 3-0 at the Craven Cottage on Saturday.

"We need another night like that".

On Tuesday United host Paris Saint-Germain at Old Trafford in the Champions League, before taking on Chelsea in the FA Cup and welcoming table-toppers Liverpool for a mouthwatering Premier League clash.

United have looked like a completely different team since Solskjaer took charge, playing free-flowing attacking football and scoring goals for fun. "It's a tough period but these are the games you want to play in, the games you want to be available for".

"We started very well".

Paul Pogba scored a brace while Anthony Martial sandwiched a goal in between as Solskjaer made a string of changes keeping PSG in mind.

"I think in the first half we didn't control the game but we scored two goals and after that we got another and then controlled it".

"But my players are very.... not anxious, but they want to score immediately to draw the match and against big teams that is hard and we conceded to them the counter-attack". "I thought, "Wow what a challenge", he said.

"But my players are very. not anxious, but they want to score immediately, but against big teams, it's hard".

Neville though feels the results alone have increased the Norwegian's chances of getting the job with his biggest tests still to come.
