With his unbeaten record still intact, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer takes the Red Devils to Craven Cottage looking for another three points

There seems to be no sign of the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revolution stopping at Manchester United as the Red Devils remain unbeaten under their interim manager ahead of a trip to Fulham.

The Norwegian is yet to lose since replacing Jose Mourinho in December and has only dropped points once, in a 2-2 draw with Burnley,  which they followed with a return to winning ways against Leicester last weekend.

They now face Claudio Ranieri’s Cottagers, who still find themselves struggling in the relegation zone, one place off the bottom, following their defeat to Crystal Palace last time out .

United returned to winning ways against Leicester last weekend thanks to a Marcus Rashford strike, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s incredible run of games without a defeat continuing.

The Norwegian has gone 10 games now since replacing Mourinho and has only failed to pick up maximum points once, in the 2-2 draw with Burnley at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils face Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League next but before then, they’ll turn their attention to Craven Cottage and their meeting with relegation-threatened Fulham.

There is a swell of optimism within the United camp at the moment, with Jesse Lingard claiming  that Solskjaer has brought a sense of the club’s glory days back following his arrival.

“It feels like the old United coming back,” the midfielder stated. “We are back to winning ways now and that’s the way it should be.

“Ole has been great since he has come in and he has got the lads working hard. He has got his structure and organisation in the team. We are back to our football and winning games.”

Claudio Ranieri, meanwhile, faces the unenviable task of digging the London club out of the bottom three and into survival territory. He is, however, confident  that his side are capable of being the team to hand Solskjaer his first loss .

“We must be positive and have to fight,” the Italian stated. “If we don’t fight and lose, you lose before you play.

“It’s not tragedy, it’s football. I want to see my players fight until the end. My fans will be happy seeing the players fight for every ball.

“Sooner or later they [United] have to lose. Why not against us?”
