United also lacked energy so Ander Herrera should be recalled, while Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba have been guaranteed selections of late, although Fred will be pushing hard for a start.

The Spaniard, who admitted that "everyone feels free" since Solskjaer's arrival 49 days ago, insists the competitive nature of the Premier League is too great to think the new manager won't be beaten at some stage.

A huge trio of fixtures against Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea and then Liverpool follows after the Fulham game, and United could go into that as a top-four team should they win and Chelsea lose to Manchester City a day later.

"What's happened in my career so far has enabled me to do that so I'm grateful".

Solskjaer had previously criticised his players' poor start against Burnley last week which saw them trailing 2-0 though they eventually managing to come away with a point.

"We are very happy with him at the moment, but it's not my decision to decide", he added. Today, we could have controlled the game more and when we didn't, we fought for the next ball... We're playing with a lot of freedom, this is one of the things he is talking about every day. "We put our bodies on line, blocked a few".

However, as is often the case on the road, United relied on goalkeeper David de Gea for all three points as a Leicester side that have often troubled the top six this season improved after half-time.

"If I deserve it, I will get it", he said.
