And as we head towards the final phase of the season, Fulham are sinking further into the relegation scrap, having acquired just seventeen points in 26 matches and are in desperate need of a miraculous turnaround if they are to maintain their top-flight status next season.

Manchester United rolled to their 10th win in 11 games under caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with a 3-0 victory at Fulham on Saturday, climbing into the top four in the English Premier League for the first time since the opening weekend.

- Solksjaer has picked up 25 points in the Premier League since taking over in December (W8 D1), more than any other manager has achieved in his first nine games in charge of a single club in the competition.

The win at Fulham lifts United into fourth place in the league, ahead of Chelsea's visit to Manchester City on Sunday.

"He is playing to his potential", said Solskjaer.

Solskjaer says he spoke to co-owner Avram Glazer after the match when the American visited the United dressing room, but he insists the team's improvement is not simply down to his impact.

"I just spoke to him outside here". Who I meet and when I meet people is not really up for me to tell.

Fulham fans made their feelings clear as they booed Schurrle when he was replaced by Cyrus Christie on 53 minutes and applauded the decision to take off Ryan Babel on 77 minutes after the Netherlands worldwide had hit the post from point blank range. It's the whole team, it's us together.

"The most pleasing thing was in the second half, the way we controlled it".

"We are trying to put the team forward to put players in positions where they can hurt teams".

Paul Pogba fired United ahead from an impossibly tight angle in the 14th minute, springing in behind the defence and onto a pass from Anthony Martial on the left, turning and shooting first time between goalkeeper Sergio Rico and the near post.

"We created two great chances to score a goal but suddenly Pogba scored their first goal and I thought "okay, stay calm and we can continue to play".

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

"When you play against champions, you have to stay calm, don't lose your composure".

"You don't know what you're doing" chanted a number inside Craven Cottage as Ranieri brought on Cyrus Christie for Schurrle, with fans singing the name of substitute Ryan Sessegnon.

"I understand the fans".
