French Kiss in England: Frenchmen(Martial & Pogba) combines…….

0

Caretaker Coach, Ole Gunner Solskjaer has continued his impressive run since taking over at United as his team moved into the top four of the Premier League table with a 3-0 victory over Fulham at Craven Cottage.

Paul Pogba who has rejuvenated under Solskjer had a brace in the game, while Anthony Martial also got on the scoresheet.

This is United’s 10th win in 11 matches in all competitions under caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

An encouraging start from Fulham saw Luciano Vietto scuff a volley wide from a promising position, and that miss was punished by Pogba 14 minutes in, the midfielder racing onto Martial’s pass and blasting left-footed beyond Sergio Rico at the near post.

United seemed happy to invite Fulham onto them in order to strike on the break, and they did so in ruthless fashion 23 minutes in. Phil Jones won back the ball and released Martial, who burst forward while holding off Denis Odoi, skipped beyond Maxime Le Marchand and slotted past Rico.

Ander Herrera saw a half-volley beaten away by Rico as United pushed for a third, and they promptly found it from the penalty spot 64 minutes in, Pogba sweeping the ball into the right-hand corner after Le Marchand tripped Juan Mata.

United, who kept player-of-the-month Marcus Rashford on the bench as they made six changes from the 1-0 win at Leicester City, were rarely troubled by a Fulham side who have now lost 23 of their last 24 league meetings with ‘big six’ opposition.
