Yet again Pogba was the creative force behind everything Manchester United did going forward, pulling the Fulham defence one way and then the other with his passing and dribbling.

The Manchester United interim manager was thrilled to see Martial commit his future to the club.

Mourinho was sacked in December amid United's poor run of form and reports of dressing-room unrest - star midfielder Paul Pogba at the centre of discontent in Manchester.

Mourinho wanted to sell Martial and bring in the 30-year-old Chelsea winger Willian last summer.

"The biggest nights of my career have been Champions League nights", said Solskjaer, who scored the victor for United in the 1999 final which helped the club complete a treble, including the Premier League and FA Cup titles. "Perhaps it is easier to play this style of football and not the style he [Mourinho] asked".

"He is asking me to attack more". To make the difference, to be more decisive. "We just need to keep improving and keep picking up points", said Jones.

"When our new coach came in he had a lot of confidence, a lot of determination". We're really happy to have him here with us. That's what we're trying to do at the moment.

Martial's goal at Fulham immediately drew comparisons to Ronaldo's famous strike at Craven Cottage in 2007 from Gary Neville and the club's supporters on social media.

But the Frenchman recognises that he must become more adept at sniffing out what Solskjaer calls the "ugly" goals, not least by better timing his runs in behind defenders, if - like Mbappe - he is to regularly contribute 20 or more goals a season.

"I don't think we are necessarily favourites", Martial said.

PSG will have to cope without the injured Neymar for both legs of the tie due to injury and Edinson Cavani is also missing.

The French worldwide scored twice at Craven Cottage as the Red Devils put the SW6 outfit to the sword on Saturday, running out 3-0 winners. "We are guessing a little bit how they will approach this game".
