Manchester United’s outstanding form under caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer continued in Saturday’s 3-0 win over Fulham at Craven Cottage.
The Red Devils’ success in west London – which propelled them into the top four – was their 10th win in 11 games since the Norwegian replaced Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford.
And once more, front and centre, playing a starring role, was Paul Pogba.
The Frenchman scored twice and produced a man of the match display as United eased to victory.
Yet it was just the latest in a growing list of excellent showings from the World Cup winner over the last eight weeks.
Pogba has scored seven goals under Solskjaer’s stewardship and operating in an attacking role on the left of United’s midfield threesome – including Nemanja Matic and Ander Herrera – has been reborn.
It is all a far cry from the final days of Mourinho, with the Portuguese having been at odds with the £89million star, leaving him on the bench during his dismal finale at Anfield.
Now Alexis Sanchez, who was forced to deny he won a bet with teammates just days after Mourinho’s dismissal, has taken a thinly-veiled dig at his former boss, when discussing Pogba’s renaissance under Solskjaer.
“Paul Pogba is still young, but he is a great player, who has to be trusted in the team," said Sanchez, speaking to the Mirror.
"Now I see him far more involved in the team and he’s playing well."
He also added: "There’s a great atmosphere at the club.”

Regarding whether there has been a change in morale in the dressing room since Mourinho’s exit, Sanchez remained coy, stating: “About what happens inside the locker room, I never speak.
“People keep saying the way things have changed is like a miracle, but I do not believe in miracles.
"I only believe in work and more work – and that’s what we’ve done.”
