  • TRAINING The best of the action from today's session at the CFA

Ole Gunner Solskjaer has admitted that confidence is running sky high in his Manchester United players as they continued their unbeaten run on the domestic front with a 3-2 win over Southampton at Old Trafford.

Andreas Pereira and Romelu Lukaku found the net in the second half to put United ahead but a 75th-minute James Ward-Prowse free-kick levelled the tie before Lukaku scored his second, and the victor, two minutes from time.

However, Lukaku struck another sublime goal in the 88th minute to secure three points that lift them back into the top four of the Premier League at the expense of Arsenal. That shows that they can compete with the biggest teams in the English Premier League, and Manchester United will be well aware of entering this contest that they aren't to be taken lightly.

Wolves' 2-0 win came courtesy of goals from Diogo Jota and Raul Jimenez.

The Belgium global had stepped up to take the injury-time penalty to clinch his debut hat-trick but watched on as Pogba saw his effort saved by Angus Gunn.

"It's a very important win for us", he adds.

"We are one point below [Liverpool] and many things are going to happen", Pep Guardiola said on Friday.

Having introduced club legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as a short-term replacement for Jose Mourinho back in December, many believed that the Norwegian would merely be keeping the seat warm for a more established name to arrive in the summer, Mauricio Pochettino being the outstanding candidate.

"That belief is here now, I have to say".

The result moved United back into the top four of the Premier League but it was not all good news for Solskjaer, who saw Alexis Sanchez hobble off in the second half.

"This was the ideal team to beat today and we knew before the game it was like a final", said Andone.

"I put myself in situations that in the eyes of people from the outside are not the best position, but I don't regret that at all because I always give my all for the club". "We have done it so many times before". I just want to do all I can on the pitch.

Ward-Prowse did equalize for the visitors with a brilliant free-kick, but his goal was cancelled out by Lukaku again, who made no mistake in beating the goalkeeper.

Onate told Chilean outlet elmercurio that he's been in touch with Sanchez and the former Arsenal star confirmed he's suffered ligament damage which will keep him out for between six to eight weeks.
