Man United sign Anthony Martial to new long-term contract

Anthony Martial has signed a five-year deal

Andy Cole says Sir Alex Ferguson's influence is clear to see on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's style of management at Manchester United.

"He's a fantastic player with the ball, he can make the difference".

Marcus Rashford marked his 100th Manchester United appearance with the victor at Leicester as coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer maintained his unbeaten record in charge of the Red Devils.

David de Gea is a dead cert to start in goal and after scoring his first goal for the club in stoppage time against Burnley, Victor Lindelof will also begin the match.

Solskjaer, United's caretaker-manager, witnessed Ronaldo's transformation from raw teenager to world-class talent while at Old Trafford.

It brings Leicester's run without a league win to four, since they beat Everton on New Year's Day, having lost three and drawn one since then.

'Second half I thought we were more concerned about the result than the performance and it showed, ' Solskjaer said.




Many of United's stars have enjoyed resurgences under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer but the former Barcelona man still hasn't shaken off whatever's stopping him from being his best.

"Anthony is one of those naturally gifted players that any coach would love to work with", Solskjaer said. He " ll be up there but so will Mauricio Pochettino but the next man we [United] get in has to be the right man.

Solskjaer's coaching career got off to a flawless start at Molde when he won two Norwegian league titles, but a brief spell in charge of Cardiff ended in disappointment when they were relegated from the Premier League in 2014.

"When you're 1-0 up anything can happen in that box and I think that Harry Maguire has got a magnet on his head because it always dropped to him", Solskjaer said.

"For a young man, he has a good footballing brain and when coupled with his exceptional talent, makes for a player with an exciting future ahead of him".

"I think we can go into the game on Sunday and away at Tottenham [next Sunday] with a lot of confidence".
