Lingard has praised Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Mike Phelan

Young was speaking ahead of United's first leg last-16 clash against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on Tuesday night , which will see the French champions arrive at Old Trafford.

Solskjaer revealed Glazer congratulated his players after the game, but he didn't reveal too many details about his discussions with the American businessman.

"It's never about one person when the team is winning games of football". "I thought, "Wow what a challenge", he said.

"When Ole Gunnar happened, somehow, I nearly felt that Sir Alex had returned", the England star told L'Equipe . "He came into the dressing room".

Herrera - perhaps more than any other Red - has helped Pogba flourish by offering him a defensive shield, as well as forming part of a strong midfield block which has created stability in front of a defence which has creaked at times this season.

A very forward thinking attitude but, unlike the players themselves, we can afford to look back and reflect upon the performance.

Looking back on his two years working with Ferguson, Young went on to acknowledge how lucky he was to have played under the former United boss. "Everyone's got to take us seriously now". "Since Ole [Gunnar Solskjaer] came in we talked about this, we want to be at the top, in the top four", he told Sky Sports after the game.

After the Champions League game with PSG there's an FA Cup tie with Chelsea, a league game with Liverpool and then a run of games at the beginning of March against PSG, Arsenal and City.

"It's a squad game", Solskjaer stressed of his rotation. "I have to say I don't think I would have hit it like he did, so fantastic goal". "I've been in that situation a few times myself and it's about who grabs it".

Ryan Babel, in particular, was often guilty of taking a series of bad first-touches, which robbed Fulham of the opportunity of initiating numerous counter attacks while Luciano Vietto also missed a golden opportunity in the very first minute of the game.
