The England forward scored again for United in the 3-2 win over Atalanta on Wednesday.

And Solskajer is excited about his impact on the team.

Speaking after the Atalanta game, Solskjaer said: "We had chances in the first half, from Marcus's runs, and he kept on going and, in the end, he got a knock.

"But he's going to be very, very important for us."
