I can get best out of Sanchez - Solskjaer

Mourinho departed in the wake of defeat at Liverpool and successor Solskjaer has overseen an upturn in fortunes that he thinks Sanchez can benefit from, with United scoring 12 goals in his first three games in caretaker charge.

Despite their rapid improvement under interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, which has seen United brush aside Cardiff, Huddersfield and Bournemouth, the Red Devils will head into 2019 sitting in sixth place and trailing leaders Liverpool by 19 points. "They've all performed and as long as they perform they should get a chance but that's my job, to improve players and individuals".

"It's work rate, it's unsafe in the box, he wins headers, he wins tackles and there is no showboating". United are the side who are in better form at the moment and they will be the pre-match favourites for this game.

Though Rafa has won his last four home matches against United when in charge of an English club (two with Liverpool, one with Chelsea, one with Newcastle), he knows that Wednesday's clash won't be easy. I think we faced a very organised and very tough team. The Frenchman and the Belgian were often either criticized or looked upon as they were not on top of their game, but have produced 16 goals among themselves.

He was also inches away from completing a hat-trick when Asmir Begovic tipped his shot on to a post.

"Solskjaer has brought back the best Pogba, as he's enjoying it and playing where he likes", said the England worldwide.

"The way he's gone about this job, playing up top, the work rate he puts in..."

"I respect him and I would like to play against his team, but this is life, there has been a change and they are doing very well". And he's the catalyst.

"These players, and it's my opinion, even if nobody is on the bench, they can win without one [a manager]", Jose Gomez said (as reported by Goal). "It's a rash tackle".

"Hopefully Fellaini will get through the training session but [otherwise] we are more or less a full squad".

No Premier League team won more points than Manchester United in the past six matches.

Replaced by Romelu Lukaku in the 70th minute at Old Trafford, the England worldwide headed straight down the tunnel.

"There is a line that needs to be drawn, we can't just forget everything that's happened in the past".

"He's a player that would benefit from the rotation (of positions) and movements, and the more chances you create, the more times you get the ball into the final third, he'll be an asset for us", said Solskjaer.
