Injured Pogba to join Man Utd late on Dubai trip

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer does not care about breaking Matt Busby's Manchester United record as he looks ahead to a blockbuster Premier League showdown against Tottenham.

Romelu Lukaku, the man Jose Mourinho once christened his "sergeant", appears to be the latest Manchester United player to have expressed displeasure at how he was handled by the Portuguese manager.

The nature of the match may allow the Norwegian to make changes to his side, granting regular first teamers a well-earned rest after an intense festive period from which United have plundered maximum points. When I came in, they were open and honest about the process of looking for the next manager.

"Of course, Spurs away, Wembley, that's a proper test".

68' - SAVE! Young gets the better of three Reading players down the left and cuts the ball back for Fellaini, who has most of the goal to aim at, but his flick is too close to Jaakkola who prevents a third.

The Red Devils' interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has provided an updated regarding the team that could feature in the contest (Official Website).

"I think, certainly for the strikers, this is a massive deal for Rashford".

"From where I sat it was a clear penalty, so I didn't need VAR there", Solskjaer said.

"I think we are back to ourselves and it's good to see the players enjoy (it) and winning games, which is the most important thing".

Alexis Sanchez had the first chance of the game, firing just over after 15 minutes following a slick counter from the home side.

"I'm not sure if Paul's going to be ready, he got a knock against Newcastle". Get Lukaku a start, get Sanchez a start.

In four games under Solskjaer the team have scored 14 goals, under Mourinho in 17 games the team scored 31 goals, a marked improvement.

The 2-0 victory over Newcastle, midweek, was only Manchester United's third clean sheet of this Premier League season.

Sone Aluko was denied by a good save from Romero, but United were mostly comfortable in the closing minutes as they secured their place in next Monday's fourth-round draw. Like his United team-mates, the forward did not have much meaningful time on the ball and looked like his confidence was beginning to slip with frustration sneaking.
