United are on the rise after their latest victory to extend their unbeaten streak under Solskjaer.

The Red Devils beat Leicester 1-0 at the King Power Stadium after an early strike from Rashford gifted them the win.

It came from a delightful Paul Pogba pass, with the duo being the main benefactors of Solskjaer’s attacking tactics.

Since the Norwegian’s arrival, both Rashford and Pogba have scored six times after struggling under Jose Mourinho.

But Solskjaer has revealed how Rashford ignored one instruction of his - but admitted that he has forgiven the Englishman.

The interim boss said: “I enjoyed Marcus’ finish.

“But then again I told him to try and go through Schmeichel’s legs because he opens up in these situations.

“But it was a great finish and the kid is improving and improving — so I can’t complain.”

Meanwhile, another former United star has insisted that Solskjaer’s brilliant start could have happened under a number of managers.

Paul Ince said: “I am not just a pundit who has never managed a club - I have managed in the Premier League and all four English professional divisions, so no-one can say I don't know what I am talking about.

“And, as a manager, I could see the signs that under Mourinho the players were not happy and the atmosphere and environment was not great. Let's be honest, everyone could see that.

“My argument was that it was easy for whoever came in after that to right the ship, and lift the players and the dressing room - and put the whole club back on track.

“When I said anyone could have come in and done the same, I did not mean to be disrespectful to Ole.

“What I meant was any manager - for example myself, Mark Hughes or Steve Bruce - could have recognised the issues at Old Trafford and come in and changed the environment in a positive way.

“There is far more to it than just bringing some of the fun back, but you would start by allowing the players to play with freedom, and in their correct positions too.

“Ole has done all of that and has obviously made a big difference.”
