The Three Crunch Clashes That Will Define Manchester United's Season

Solskjaer was appointed as Jose Mourinho's interim successor last month and has guided them to eight straight victories in all competitions so far.

Sanchez was making his comeback from a hamstring injury and bagged an impressive goal on his Emirates Stadium return to set United on the way to a 3-1 FA Cup fourth-round win.

United are now in sixth place in the Premier League table; having clawed back the points deficit to fifth placed Arsenal, and rising to within three points of Chelsea.

"I can make runs to be in the box, Paul [Pogba] can make runs to drive the ball forward, Ashley [Young], Luke Shaw is allowed to win the ball in the box and make a run even to the opponents' box", he said.

There are no two ways about it - Manchester United have been phenomenal under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Speaking to Manchester United's website, Herrera said: "We shouldn't go insane with the [Premier League] table".

The next few weeks could be crucial for Solskjaer and United, with Premier League matches against both Burnley and Leicester City coming up, presenting a real opportunity for the Red Devils to continue chasing down that elusive top-four spot. 'Every player, the more confident you get the more you want to get on the pitch and train and work on yourself and you trust yourself.

Solskjaer was pleased with how his side stepped up their performance and reckons it was the one of the best of his eight-game winning stint.

Potentially, its surface phone project, "Andromeda", could potentially be canceled as the company moves on to other ventures. It's even worse if you own a Microsoft Lumia or Lumia XL: June 11, 2019 will be the last date those devices are supported.

"For us, it's more or less the same and we are trying to help the team and the guys in front of us need to express themselves with their talent, the quality, and also to help us defend".

"We have enough players, centre-backs in the squad", he said.

Manchester United's absentees list won't change much from the one of the Arsenal match.

As mentioned, United lock horns with Burnley tomorrow in their final January game of what has been an ultra-successful start to the New Year.

Indeed, Solskjaer told reporters after United's win that the likes of Ryan Giggs, Ji Sung Park and Cristiano Ronaldo had all travelled to London in the past and damaged Arsenal with swift counter-attacks.

Host David Prutton asked on The Debate: "Are we looking at a player now that's grown into the United leader and captain that they've been, in truth, crying out for".

"We knew how we could hurt them so we used our chances and I think the preparation was great and this is the result of that".

"It's a win-win situation".
