Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is convinced Marcus Rashford has the talent to become a striker of Harry Kane's class.

Tottenham are so determined to keep manager Mauricio Pochettino that they are prepared to reject £50million from Manchester United. "There's so much attacking quality in both sides - Harry Kane, Anthony Martial, players who can score from nothing - that it's hard to see a clean sheet for either side".

Solskjaer was brought in to replace Jose Mourinho in December after the Red Devils opted to sack the Portuguese coach - and Manchester United have gone on to win all of their games under the interim boss.

He's got frightening pace.

Going into the weekend, the news cycle around Old Trafford has not churned out any sensational headlines, but it is still turning and we've made sure you're up to date ahead of the big match this weekend...

"Of course we're going to be in a different club, because it's not the same to play in Wembley for the last two years almost".

He said the family's patriarch had met with the UNHCR yesterday morning and will return to "her country" later today. Although her asylum case moved fast the final manoeuvres that led to her flight to Canada remain a mystery.


Since returning to United, where he played as a striker between 1996 and 2007, Solskjaer has spoken repeatedly of the need to return to the attractive, attacking football that they played for much of Alex Ferguson's reign. "There were a couple of training sessions here (I watched) with the young kids, and Chongy (Tahith Chong) and Angel (Gomes) and him and Jesse, they played together in a certain way".

Solskjaer has accepted the speculation surrounding Pochettino - "because he has done well" - even though he knows little about the Argentinian's management style. Tottenham defeated Manchester United 3-0 when the two sides met earlier in the season.

"I have good memories of him", said Pochettino of Solskjaer.

When asked if he thought this situation would give Solskjaer more motivation on Sunday, Pochettino replied: "Motivation is going to be there and then of course when you are a manager you can't be focused on rumours the most important thing is the motivation we have to do. It's easier to play an attacking way and your way when you've got good players, and he's got lots of good players".

"I think it's fantastic news because he is football", Pochettino told reporters at his news conference yesterday.
