Ole Gunnar Solskjaer makes huge decision over Marcus Rashford and Romelu Lukaku

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on substitutes

And Solskjaer sees no reason why Rashford can not live up to the standards set by his England team-mate Kane, who will likely lead the line for Tottenham at Wembley on Monday morning, as they take on United in the Premier League.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has backed Marcus Rashford to emulate Harry Kane and become one of the most feared strikers in the world. He's got the potential to get up there.

He's got frightening pace. After that we keep a very good relationship and of course it's nothing to hide because we are football people and admire these kind of people like him.

Pochettino has enjoyed an excellent spell as Spurs boss and while he has yet to win silverware, has earned the north London outfit three straight top-three finishes in the Premier League despite working with a smaller transfer budget than his rivals.

He won the Golden Boot at last year's World Cup and this season is joint-top scorer alongside Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on 14 goals.

Solskjaer, along with Mike Phelan, has allowed players to breathe on the pitch again, with Man United producing five wins out of five under the Norwegian's leadership.

However, he was regularly restricted to substitute appearances after Jose Mourinho replaced Van Gaal as manager later that year, and was often asked to play in a left-sided role, with Romelu Lukaku as the central attacker.




Playing Juan Mata on the right stifles United's attacking play as everything is funnelled too centrally, so Jesse Lingard should get the nod out on the right, rounding off a high-octane front three.

A central part of Ferguson's philosophy was the development of players from the club's academy, which Rashford joined at the age of seven. That's our strength as well: going forward and attacking teams.

"Marcus has been brought up here", he said. "He's a very exciting player to work with".

"Hopefully we can carry it on for the rest of the season".

"I have good memories (of Solskjaer) because I was there in Camp Nou with Toni Jimenez (former Espanyol teammate) who is now my goalkeeping coach, when he scored after 90 minutes", said the Spurs manager.

"If we all stick together and do our best every day then we might just surprise a few with the way we could end the season".
