Solskjaer: Manchester United team selection a 'risk' at Fulham

Manchester United eased past a woeful Fulham side to move up to 4th in the Premier League. Following Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's 10th win in 11 games as caretaker manager at Man United, Paul Mariner thinks the job he's done should not be understated.

Solskjaer rotated his squad ahead of Paris Saint-Germain's visit to Old Trafford on Tuesday but the gamble paid off after a brace from Paul Pogba and a fine solo goal from Anthony Martial helped United to a comfortable win.
