Rashford strike lifts surging Man United into fifth

Watch: Carragher Thinks United Should Build Their Team Around Rashford

PLAYER RATINGS: Scores of EIGHT after Manchester United’s 1-0 win over Leicester City at the King Power Stadium

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.

Rashford and Pogba is a better combination than Batman and Superman - (@nyengo)Pogba and Rashford has become quite the combination.

"Both owners wished me all the best because they knew this is something I dreamed about". We put our heads on the line, we put our bodies on the line.

The Old Trafford faithful have had to sit back and watch the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Harry Kane get all the plaudits in recent years and perhaps rightly so but that can now afford to shout from the rooftops about their star duo.

"When you have players like we have with pace - Paul [Pogba], Anthony [Martial], Alexis [Sanchez], Romelu [Lukaku], Marcus Rashford - that's how we played with Andy [Cole], Dwight Yorke, Ryan Giggs and Becks [David Beckham] down the sides".

"I think there is a case of Ole going in there saying "there's the dressing room back guys, you get on with it, I know you're top players, show me you're top players".

United may not be able to win every game before the 2018-19 campaign comes to a close, but they are hoping to emerge successful enough to secure a top-four finish and continue progressing in the Champions League and FA Cup.

Quizzed on whether United could go unbeaten until the end of the season, a man who is due to be out of contract in the summer said: "That's impossible".

They have testing fixtures to come against Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea in those competitions, but Herrera believes serious obstacles can be overcome. "The game's changed. You want to be an all-round forward, you want to be able to play on the left, on the right, as a 10, wherever the team needs you". He said, "I think he can look back on these games and say he is on his way".

"Good start and then second half we were more concerned about the result than the performance".
