Paul Pogba: Manchester United midfielder is happy now - Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Manchester United made it two wins from two under caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as they saw off Huddersfield Town 3-1 on Wednesday. I'm no different to anyone else.

"Let's see if I get used to it".

After lifting United to a league-high runners-up spot in the wake of Sir Alex Ferguson's departure last season, that was not what United fans wanted to hear from their emboldened leader.

And one thing Solskjaer won't struggle to do when they next meet is fire up his players, with the interim boss more than aware of the club's rival.

He reported, "They [players] have not said anything to me about any handbrake (under Mourinho)".

Huddersfield manager David Wagner said: "We got beaten by world class players as Paul (Pogba) has shown in these two goals and De Gea showed with his save from Depoitre".

Norwegian Solskjaer played for United for most of his career, from 1996 to 2007, and has returned from Molde to manage the side until the end of the season.

More significantly, the win and performance also maintained the positive atmosphere generated by the arrival of the popular Norwegian, who spent almost 15 years with the club as player and coach before moving to his current club Molde.

"When you've got players like this with the quality you are always going to create chances". "That comes when you sign for Man United", he said.

But with Romelu Lukaku away on "compassionate leave" it is down to Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata and Paul Pogba to deliver the goals and attacking impetus for Solskjaer. Confidence is not something you store in the fridge and pick out. "Hopefully this gave them a boost, so I'm happy and looking forward to Boxing Day".

The player was heavily linked with a return to his home country during the summer window but Mourinho goes against selling him having failed to get Harry Maguire or Jerome Boateng - his prime targets in July.

"You can never set the bar too high because they set the standards".

" That's tradition, that's history, that's how we play and want to play". "I just hope in the next five months I'll do a good enough job for them to keep singing my name".
