Tried and tested: Predicted Manchester United lineup to face Leicester

He lauded their defense for the performance they delivered against United.

Rashford scored the only goal of the game after nine minutes.

Solskjaer's team selection was a huge factor behind an abject first half display, topped off by some poor defending in the second period.

Solskjaer had previously criticised his players' poor start against Burnley last week which saw them trailing 2-0 though they eventually managing to come away with a point.

Martial was absent in midweek but Solskjaer said of the Frenchman, "he got a slight injury in training but hopefully he'll be back for [the Leicester game]". 'Paul is feeling free because Nemanja and me and the centre-backs are all the time controlling the opponent's attack, even when we have the ball.

Speaking before United's trip to Leicester this weekend, Solskjaer said: "When I rang the owner and said that United had called and that he always knew that this had been my dream, he said: 'Go over, enjoy yourself - and please don't come back'". We're playing with a lot of freedom, this is one of the things he is talking about every day. Paul [Pogba] is feeling free, I think Marcus Rashford feels free, Jesse [Lingard] feels free, Alexis [Sanchez] also.

"We put our bodies on the line, there were a couple of bruised noses, knees and dead legs but we fought for the three points".

Loaned by Norwegian club Molde until the end of the season, Solskjaer is making an ever-more compelling case to be made permanent manager, given results and the obvious easy rapport he has with supporters and players.

"Both owners (Kjell Inge Røkke and Bjørn Rune Gjelsten) wished me all the best because they knew this is something I dreamed about". "I feel very good at the moment".

Alexis Sanchez was given a first league start since Solskjaer's arrival at United but had little influence on the game before he was withdrawn for Anthony Martial after half-time. If I deserve it, I will get it'.
