Pochettino recalls cheering after Solskjaer scored victor, Latest Football News

Solskjaer has won each of his first five games in chargeMore

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has told Marcus Rashford that he can become as prolific a goalscorer for Manchester United as Harry Kane is for Tottenham Hotspur.

He didn't feature when United lost 3-0 at home to Spurs and hasn't been too fruitful this season - scoring only two goals and assisting two - but Solskjaer is the sort of manager that could use Mata in the right way and while Mourinho often left him on the sidelines in big away matches, he has shown his brilliance against Spurs in previous seasons, and could help United get a result on Sunday afternoon.

The Argentinian said he was watching the game as a neutral, but cheered when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer scored the last-gasp victor after coming on as a substitute.

Lukaku is still understood to be in the club's plans, but Solskjaer has made it clear that he will now have to earn his place back from Rashford. We can talk about Harry Kane and his class, and I'm sure Marcus has got the potential to get up there.

"He's become stronger and can hold the ball up for us", added the former United striker.

Kane, 25, has set the goalscoring standards in English football over the past three years - he was the league's top scorer in 2015/16 and 2016/17 before finishing runner-up to Liverpool's Mohamed Salah last season.

Pochettino will take on Solskjaer's United in an enticing Premier League game at Wembley on Sunday, with the favourite to take over as Old Trafford boss next summer doing his best to side-step questions on his future in his pre-match press conference.

And while he insisted he was a neutral - he was a player at Espanyol then - the 46-year-old Argentinian admitted he was thrilled when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer scored the winning goal deep in injury time.

"Of course we're going to be in a different club, because it's not the same to play in Wembley for the last two years almost".

Solskjaer sees Rashford's academy background as valuable, suggesting the forward has learned from a young age about the attacking style traditionally associated with United.

"[Tahith] Chong, Angel [Gomes] and him, they play together in a certain way so he's a very exciting player to work with".

'I think from the distance it's so hard, ' he said.

"We just keep working every single day on improving the team here".

"I think Christian is a fantastic player".
