That commitment shown by his players sparked memories for Solskjaer of his own playing career at the club, and has given the 45-year-old confidence their resilience will protect them when their next defeat does inevitably arrive.

Manchester United youngster Tahith Chong could make his Premier League debut against Fulham after he was included in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's squad to face the Cottagers.

Manchester United defender Phil Jones has signed a new contract, the club have confirmed.

The contract includes the option to extend by a further year.

"I don't look back at being proud of this or that I've always looked forward and never sat down before a chapter is finished to be proud but I've never said well done, maybe I should do more often but that's just me". "Of course Manchester United is the place to be, everyone wants to be here and I would love it, but we have to focus on what matters in the next few days and not about what happens after that".

"I am excited about the challenges that lie ahead of us as we prepare for a very busy period in the season. I would like to thank Ole and the coaching staff for their continued support in my development".

Solskjaer picks David de Gea between the sticks, while the centre-back pairing the Manchester United boss goes with is Phil Jones and Chris Smalling.

No person thought this is where Man United would be, come the month of February. Move on big decisions here and there, and the 20 times Premier League champions are one of the teams to beat.

Negotiations are ongoing with Ander Herrera and Ashley Young, who are reportedly close to extending their current deals beyond the end of the season.
