  • Paul Pogba and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Romelu Lukaku has revealed just how caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is already helping to improve Manchester United's strikers.

Manchester United's Tahith Chong comes on as a substitute to replace Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini comes on for Fred during their match against Reading at the Old Trafford Stadium in Manchester on January 5, 2019. "Look at the teams that they had back in the day and it was the same thing then".

Via the Independent, Solskjaer said: "hopefully OK", when questioned on Sanchez's injury. A Blackpool fan climbed on to the roof and sat down in protest at the conduct of his club's owners but was persuaded to come down after a lengthy stand-off.

"Of course, Spurs away, Wembley, that's a proper test". Like his United team-mates, the forward did not have much meaningful time on the ball and looked like his confidence was beginning to slip with frustration sneaking.

"We have performed a lot better, but you can't ask for fantasy football every time and with the changes I made you can't expect it to have the same flow and rhythm", Solskjaer told reporters.

Manchester United follow up their Tottenham fixture with matches against Brighton and Burnley in the Premier League to finish out December. "We kept them at bay then we made some mistakes, the crowd got drawn in and it's always hard".

Department of Energy's assistant secretary for fossil energy, Steven Winberg; and other senior officials. On Thursday, privately held grains trader Cargill announced worse-than-expected results out of China.

"I think the players are getting confidence and the feeling that we have momentum".

"I'm not sure if Paul's going to be ready, he got a knock against Newcastle".

"He's been out a month now, he's had 20 minutes against Newcastle, half an hour maybe".

United will travel to Dubai for warm-weather training after Saturday's game, and Solskjaer warned it will not be a holiday. Now he's had 60 minutes, so it's about building up again. "I know they are quality players".

"You don't run the game as a 19-year-old in your first appearance, but he got 30 minutes and I think he showed a few glimpses of what he can do".

There are few better strikers for Lukaku to learn from than Solskjaer, who scored 126 goals during 11 years as a player under Old Trafford including the dramatic victor in the 1999 Champions League final against Bayern Munich. That will give me more of a reference for where we are against the top boys.
