Sir Alex Ferguson reportedly gave a rousing speech to United's first-team squad after being invited back by Solskjaer recently.

However the Argentine remains the first choice of the United hierarchy and faces a potential audition this weekend.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer immediately set a positive tone as Manchester United's caretaker manager with a rousing speech at the club's annual Christmas party, according to the Telegraph's James Ducker.

"[Pogba] looked OK towards the end so he'll be fit", Solskjaer told a pre-match news conference.

"To be involved again, I think for him and for Manchester sure it's a massive, important thing".

Sarri also said: "I need a replacement". "At the moment, Morata is here". The club knows my opinion. "In my opinion we need two players", he said.

The Scot, now 77, retired as United manager in May 2013 after winning 38 trophies during 26 years in charge.

Perhaps the biggest beneficiary of United's change in management has been Paul Pogba, though, with the Frenchman beginning to show the type of form we knew he was capable of.

He is a fantastic goalscorer and one of the best in the world but I have got a couple that I am happy to work with. It's like having the big book of Larousse (an encyclopedia), like a dictionary. That doesn't mean how we operate today is not right, but of course with time you need to innovate and find new ideas and always be open to try to improve. It was a book where you find everything. "He is an encyclopaedia of football".

"I don't know how we found the tickets", said Pochettino, who was then playing for Espanyol. "We'll see if we have a space in the starting XI, bench or not". We were neutral people watching a fantastic game. "But the atmosphere was unbelievable".

Rashford has started all four Premier League games under the Norwegian as the main striker, and has played a major role - scoring three times and assisting twice - as United have racked up maximum points. Perversely, should Tottenham win on Sunday it would make Levy's task harder. For me, if there was one person that was easy to do business with it was Daniel, personally. They were mid-table, and mid-table for facilities. Now it is at the top.
