Under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, however, the team is slowly rediscovering its past lethal form and this was exhibited against Sheffield United on Wednesday when Anthony Martial bagged a memorable hat trick. But what we've seen is that United have invested a lot in young players and the No.9 position is a tricky position to play, it's a specialist position, Ally [McCoist] will vouch for that. Martial finished the play with a short chip over Moore to find the net.

It is likely there will be several changes for the FA Cup tie away to Norwich City, although United need to cautious not to alter too much.

Sheffield United, in their third game back, are yet to score a goal since the Premier League's return and have only taken one point from a potential nine available.

Both were runs to the near post, the first took him a bit nearer to the goal than the second.

Paul Pogba turned in a polished performance on his first start since September, operating alongside Bruno Fernandes and Nemanja Matic in a United midfield three that appeared ideally balanced. However, Solskjaer heaped praises on Bruno.

Two first-half strikes from the France global and an equally artful third after the break gave the hosts victory over slumping Sheffield United in sweltering conditions.

"At the moment, we've got some really good players who are nowhere near it", Wilder said.

Martial produced two predatory first-time finishes before half-time to put United in command at Old Trafford.

"But I hope it is not my last. the most important thing is that we won the game".

"Very happy for Anthony. We would like third and there are two cups for us".

"First of all, any team that wins the championship and a Premier League deserve it and they deserve credit", he said.

"If there are any good deals to be made and players who can make us better, of course we might have to spend some money on that but the squad is great to work with and it's moving in the right direction".

Martial completed a comfortable victory by clipping in Rashford's clever pass, allowing Solskjaer to make history by becoming the first Premier League manager to send on five substitutes at the same time.
