Manchester United's Marcus Rashford celebrates his goal with Luke Shaw and team mates

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has praised his players' collective attitude vs Leicester in their narrow 1-0 win on Sunday.

Solskjaer added: "If I go back to Molde, I will do my best for them but it depends when I go back".

The performance wasn't exactly vintage - but at least United got the job done away from home. We put our heads on the line, we put our bodies on the line.

Marcus Rashford the game's only goal and Pogba assisted it with a superb pass. Solskjaer, asked about the goal, said, "When they get to know each other, play more together, know each others strengths and with the quality they have got, you expect that quality there".

The Frenchman proceeded to display his deftness of his touch with a lovely pass that was lofted over the Leicester backline for Rashford to run onto and he did the rest, taking a touch before drilling a low shot past a helpless Kasper Schmeichel.

France International midfielder Paul Pogba has been performing well for Manchester United since the Solskjaer took over the mantle.

Wreckage from plane carrying Cardiff signing Emiliano Sala found
Teams from the Air Accident Investigation Branch (AAIB) have now moved into location at the site to recover the aircraft. It has been an anxious and heartbreaking time for the Argentinian striker's family since his plane disappeared.

Didn't make any fantastic saves, as most of Leicester City's shots were directed straight at him.

Solskjaer, who was loaned to United by Molde until the end of the season, said that the Norwegian club's owners, businessmen Kjell Inge Rokke and Bjorn Rune Gjelsten, would support him if he stayed in a permanent role.

Speaking ahead of the trip to face the Foxes, he 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".

The victory moved United onto 48 points, two adrift of Chelsea in fourth place.

Key to that revival has of course been Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but on the pitch it has been lead by the enthusiastic return to form of Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford.
