Reading are struggling in the Championship but despite their position in the relegation zone and his respect for those at United - Sir Alex Ferguson is another he still talks to - O'Shea wants to lead his side into the FA Cup fourth round.

"Of course I won't, I don't want to", said the ever-smiling Norwegian on Wednesday (Jan 2), when asked after United's 2-0 win at Newcastle United whether he would want to leave Old Trafford in May at the end of his planned interim spell.

Our midfield three of Paul Pogba, Nemanja Matic and Ander Herrera has been phenomenal under Solskjaer, but they must be rested ahead of the game against Tottenham, so we should play our next three best midfielders: Andreas Pereira, Scott McTominay and Fred.

"We were very compact, we played well and we created a few good chances where we could probably be there and score the goals but, unfortunately, the first goal affected the whole game, and I apologise for that". "I think we can win every single game".

"He is playing very simple and effective in our half, and then when he is in the opponent's half he has that magic to change the game, so we are really happy for him".

"Solskjaer couldn't have done any more".

United are due to fly to Dubai after the game for a warm weather training camp, ahead of the trip to Tottenham on January 13, and Solskjaer was warned his squad to expect four days of hard work.

They claimed he gave the Argentine striker much space and time to hit the ball which went straight into Alisson's net.

In United's history, only the legendary and iconic Busby has matched that achievement and Solskjaer celebrated enthusiastically with the club's traveling supporters after goals from Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford secured the points.
