Marcus Rashford has been handed Manchester United's "Player of the Month" award for January following a scintillating month under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. With nine wins and a draw in the ten games that he has managed so far, Solskjaer maintains an impressive record at the Old Trafford touchline.

One of Solskjaer's most significant contributions following his arrival from Molde has been putting a smile back on the faces of his players.

The visit was mooted as a gesture of goodwill when United made an agreement to loan Solskjaer for the rest of the season, with the fixture against PSG or the upcoming Premier League home match against Liverpool earmarked as potential glamour ties.

And the midfielder feels United's good form can be the catalyst to a return to the top of the league.

England and Manchester United's all-time leading goalscorer swapped Everton for MLS by signing a three-and-a-half-year deal with DC in June.

United sit just two points behind Chelsea and can end this weekend in fourth place if they beat struggling Fulham at Craven Cottage and Maurizio Sarri's team lose at Manchester City on Sunday.

As we all know, Solskjaer has yet to be toppled since replacing Jose Mourinho.

First of all, although Ince has been managing longer than Solskjaer, he did not manage the Manchester United Reserves or any of the other youth sides - whereas the latter has.

The new agreement would keep him at Old Trafford until 2024 and make him one of the Premier League's highest paid stars.

However, United's form under the Norwegian has sparked some reports that the job may now be given to their former striker instead. He got the players backing him straight away.

The Mirror suggest that United's executives are growing increasingly pessimistic about the possibility of snaring Mauricio Pochettino from Tottenham, with the Argentinian conveying mixed messages after pledging his loyalty to Spurs, whilst simultaneously stating his desire to compete for silverware on a regular basis. He was a fantastic player.
