Manchester United's form under interim manager Ole-Gunnar Solskjaer has been nothing short of incredible, with the Red Devils securing ten wins out of 11 games in all competitions under the Norwegian.

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.

A lot will probably depend on how the Red Devils fare in their crucial Champions League fixture against PSG next week as the Red Devils brace themselves for arguably their toughest challenge this season.

Avram was at Saturday's win over Fulham, when United emerged as 3-0 victors despite picking a heavily rotated team, and he spoke to Solskjaer in the dressing room afterwards. "Since Ole [Gunnar Solskjaer] came in we talked about this, we want to be at the top, in the top four", he told Sky Sports after the game.

"We might have been a bit of a laughing stock at the beginning of the season but we're certainly not now. Of course, we're all happy after winning the game". We're improving, we're still getting better. But it's about becoming stronger and seeing that through.

'If we win at Old Trafford and we don't concede, then I think we would be favourites for the second leg.

Paul Pogba scored twice, but it was Anthony Martial's goal that caught everybody's attention.

Indeed, United have won 10 of their 11 matches under Solskjaer, including eight of their last nine in the Premier League to move into fourth position in the table. "You know he's going to be able to contribute and he will contribute, don't worry about that". It's a big statement from where we were.

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.

"Consistency is key in any sport and it's no different here".
