Solskjaer: Victory at Fulham flawless preparation for PSG

Fulham boss Claudio Ranieri felt his players were too eager to force an equaliser following Pogba's 14th minute opener, which allowed Martial to exploit them on the break for the second goal.

Since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over as manager of Manchester United there's been no more effective player than Paul Pogba.

After sweeping Fulham aside with a 3-0 win at Craven Cottage on Saturday for their 10th win in 11 matches under the Norwegian, he found it hard not to praise his team to the skies.

Their next Premier League game is a huge one against title challengers Liverpool at Old Trafford on February 24 but before then face PSG in the Champions League and a trip to Chelsea in the FA Cup.

Pogba capitalised on poor defending to fire past Sergio Rico from an acute angle, before Martial ended a dazzling run of power and pace with a smart finish.

Paul Pogba continued his ridiculous recent of form for Manchester United by bagging a brace in the side's 3-0 win over Fulham, however one young fan was happier with his performance after the whistle than during the 90 minutes.

After an even start which saw Fulham go close through Luciano Vietto and Aleksandar Mitrovic, United struck twice with their first two efforts at goal.

But that confident play was short-lived, with an early error by Fulham centre-back Maxime Le Marchand sapping confidence.

Fulham had plenty of the ball in the first half but barely threatened, as United were lethal on the counter attack. "I speak to him like I do with the others, that's management".

United won possession and Phil Jones found the fleet-footed attacker just inside his own half.

"You know he's going to be able to contribute and he will contribute, don't worry about that".

Just after the hour-mark, Pogba would score again, this time from the penalty spot after Juan Mata was fouled in the box by Maxime Le Marchand, a player who had a game to forget.

This was the latest in a long line of concerning displays by Fulham, who look bereft of confidence and ideas at a vital stage of the season.
