Man United not ‘satisfied’ despite winning run, says De Gea

Jesse Lingard scores

Lingard nets United’s second goal

The former striker has now challenged his players not to become complacent as they prepare for Burnley's visit to Old Trafford in the Premier League on Tuesday.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has impressed as his successor, overseeing eight successive victories, but Lukaku is reluctant to be drawn on the differences between the manager who signed him for £75 million ($99m) and the one now at the helm. The side is on an eight-game winning run under the Norwegian star. "We've got to look at 'Can we win something this year?'"

"I think personally Solskjaer should get the job", Brazil told Ian Stone's Comedy Breakfast (weekdays 6.30am-10.30am).

"If you win trophies that's a fantastic day for everyone in the club, it's just the best time of your life because you never know when the next one is going to come".

'The manager always said, "Enjoy this, whatever trophy you win".

Support for Solskjaer to land the role on a full-time basis has gathered momentum in recent days, with United club ambassador Andy Cole suggesting his former team-mate should get the job and midfielder Ander Herrera lavishing praise on Mourinho's replacement.

News of Pochettino's commitment to Tottenham will pave the way for Solskjaer to press his claims to be the next permanent United manager, after he secured his latest victory against Arsenal in the FA Cup fourth round on Friday night.

"Of course we came second last season, we wanted to be challenging for the top place".

"That's not the dream, to be top four", said Solskjaer.

Manchester United have a higher win rate in games played on Tuesdays (62.5%) than any other side in Premier League history, winning 30 of their 48 such matches.

After a poor start that left Burnley hovering in the relegation zone and struggling to adjust to the demands of playing in the Europa League, Dyche has steadied the ship and they are now 16th and unbeaten in their past four league games.

Solskjaer is helping to foster that mentality within a group that had been faltering under Mourinho.

"If he can get past PSG then I reckon it's more or less his because a lot of people will judge him on that".

Asked if Manchester United need to make a decision over Solskjaer now, Atkinson said on MUTV: "I don't think they need to and I don't think he's in a hurry".

"There was four or five players who weren't doing what they should have been doing but he seemed to be getting it all the time".

"Paul Pogba's got to get the fans back on side because I know they were turning against him".
