Man United's Rashford the best in the Premier League - Solskjaer

Share

Pogba opened the scoring with a 27th-minute penalty and Rashford made it 2-0 in the 42nd, beating his marker with dazzling footwork on the left flank before finding the top corner from a tight angle.

And when he was asked if he thought Rashford was now the best centre-forward in the division, Solskjaer said: "You can argue for many strikers but I'm glad he's in my team". "Harry Kane is injured so maybe that gives him a better chance to be the best one at the moment".

"He finishes, tries to shoot, he doesn't think twice about it".

"He made a chance for Jesse (Lingard) and I can not believe how Jesse didn't score on that chance at the back post".

This is a complete U-turn from Martial's stance in the summer preceding the 2018/19 season when his agent claimed that he wanted to leave the club following the player not seeing eye to eye with then coach Jose Mourinho.

Often subdued in a deeper role during his rare starts under the Portuguese, Rashford has repaid Solskjaer's faith handsomely and scored a brilliant individual goal in his 150th appearance for United on Saturday.

Pascal Gross pulled one back but Solskjaer was still able to achieve the feat of becoming the first United manager to win his first six league games in charge.

He said: "I used to be one of four strikers when we played with two". I think [Pochettino] gets the best out of his players whether they are younger or older.

While United are sixth, level on points with fifth-place Arsenal and three behind fourth-placed Chelsea, Brighton are 13th.

"But if I had the opportunity to appoint someone, I'd go all out for Pochettino".

"The chances we created, we just wanted that third goal". But the pressure is at a club like this, we want to win every single game we play'.
