Solskjaer says this Manchester United midfielder can improve after victory

Given the intense fixture list Manchester United, among with many others, endured during January, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took the Leicester game as a chance for some minor changes.

Manchester United endured a hard afternoon at the King Power Stadium on Sunday, but managed to emerge on top nonetheless, as a sole strike from Marcus Rashford earned them a 1-0 win over Leicester City.

Rashford rifled home from an outstanding pass by Paul Pogba, with David De Gea denying Jamie Vardy and Rachid Ghezzal to ensure United took all three points.

His stock at Leicester remains on the slide but Solskjaer's at Old Trafford continues to soar.

Solskjaer believes the France forward has plenty of room for improvement and has urged him to look at the way Ronaldo developed. You can't just rely on what you do now. 'Second half I thought we were more concerned about the result than the performance and it showed, ' Solskjaer said.

As Sunday Mirror Sport revealed last week, executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is committed to a process of identifying a number of managerial candidates and Tottenham 's Mauricio Pochettino has strong support in the United boardroom.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was handed the job on a temporary basis after Jose Mourinho was sacked back in December, and has made a very encouraging start.

After news of the new £200,000-a-week contract was announced, Martial thanked Solskjaer for showing "belief" in him, despite only working with the Norwegian for six weeks.

'He's had ups and downs, of course, but now he knows he's going to stay here'. "I'll have to slow him down at times". "He's young, but he's intelligent, knows his football".

When asked if Martial could score more than 20 goals a season, former United striker Solskjaer replied: "He has the capability".

But with five minutes gone United missed a great chance to open the scoring when Luke Shaw crossed from the left and the unmarked Rashford headed over. He's got fantastic potential.

Solskjaer hopes Martial will be fit to face Leicester tomorrow after missing the midweek draw with Burnley.

When asked to explain his input on negotiations with Martial, Solskjaer said he had talked with the France worldwide about Ronaldo's time at the club.
