Pogba closing in on Man United return - Solskjaer

Goals by Mason Greenwood, Anthony Martial, and Marcus Rashford ensured the three points for United on a rainy night at Old Trafford.

"He is very composed as well with his finishing".

"It is just what he does it is natural to him". The good thing is he can do it at Old Trafford in front of a full crowd or 62,000, he doesn't get fazed by the occasion.

United will look to sign an attacker in the winter transfer window, with Solskjaer admitting as far back as September that "you don't have to be a rocket scientist to see that it's a forward that next time we're going to recruit - we're looking for some creativity and goals". "He's still composed. Whether that's a game with his mates in the park or a cup final he will still finish". Or in the Premier League hopefully!

While Rashford's overall form in front of goal has been questioned, he's now scored five goals in his last seven appearances at Old Trafford - one more than he managed across 23 matches at home last season. He needs to learn the man's game.

"If he'd really stamped his authority in training every single day and been the best option, he would have played every game, but as a young boy you expect ups and downs and he's had some downs".

Manchester United set out against Partizan Belgrade with a clear intention: to attack.

Neville told talkSPORT last week: "That Liverpool game gave them a little bit of confidence to think: "We're better than this, let's be positive and beat Norwich".

Solskjaer admits the Premier League trophy is "out of reach" after losing four of their opening 11 league games this season but believes his squad will discover consistency as they target a return to Champions League qualification.

With a packed fixture list on the horizon, Solskjaer says he will take the opportunity to rest key players - particularly for the long trip to Astana. We are still not consistent enough from game to game or within the games but that will come. Right foot, left foot - I don't think he still knows which is the best one, which is very hard for defenders to defend against.
