Wayne Rooney wants Solskjaer or Pochettino as Man Utd boss

Wayne Rooney wants Solskjaer or Pochettino as Man Utd boss

United have won nine of their 10 games under Solskjaer and are in pole position to break into the top four.

Claudio Ranieri does not think Fulham's upcoming clash with Manchester United is a foregone conclusion, pointing out the Red Devils' unbeaten run must end at some point.

Rooney was the embodiment of Sam Allardyce's stodgy Everton era; a slow-paced player for a side who needs more dynamism than that.

Neither side have any suspensions.

England global Jones could return and replace Bailly to partner Lindelof in the central defence.

Alexis Sanchez started at the King Power and could get the nod again to ensure Anthony Martial is absolutely fit and firing on Tuesday. I've supported United for many years since I went home.

United have been keen to tie down Rashford and fend off interest from Paris Saint Germain and Real Madrid.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has increased pressure on Thailand to release al-Araibi. Australian Foreign Affairs Minister Marise Payne urged Thai authorities to use their discretion.

There could be club debuts for Lazar Markovic and Havard Nordtveit following their arrivals in the January transfer window.

Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho in December and has guided United to seven wins and a draw in the Premier League to make a compelling case for his appointment ahead of early bookmakers' favourite Pochettino.

That has seen United charge back into contention for the Champions League spots, and they head into Saturday's trip to Fulham - who are in the relegation zone - just two points adrift of fourth-placed Chelsea.

"Ole Gunnar's a fantastic person", Rooney said while speaking to CNN.

"As long as we're winning games that's all that matters".

If we expand this bracket out to include successive away wins in both league and cup, Solskjaer has the chance to win his sixth away match on the spin in all competitions this Saturday, something which has eluded United since the final stretch of the 2008/09 season.

Pogba has netted six goals and five assists in the eight Premier League games since Mourinho was dismissed.
