Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on MOTD: “The first 10 minutes we made it hard for ourselves but it’s always hard to come here with the crowd and the pitch. But we managed the game well and we came through the first 10 minutes to score some fantastic goals. Solskjaer told BBC
“The players have some fantastic qualities. I’ve been supporting United for many years and you go into every match thinking United is going to win – and the players are thinking that way now.” He added.

Fulham manager Claudio Ranieri on Sky Sports: “We have to work hard it’s important to maintain the hope to do our best. I watch my team down three nil but we still wanted to score which is a good thing.”
On the first goal and whether Sergio Rico should have done better: “I don’t know, it was from a very short distance but I do not know about that.”
On getting booed for taking off Schurrle: “I changed it because I wanted to put Babel behind the two strikers and push the full-backs higher up.”
A top-four spot looked a long way off for Manchester United when Jose Mourinho was in charge. Now, they’re up to fourth, moving above Chelsea.
