​Man Utd manager Solskjaer excited about Pogba-Fernandes partnership

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits he is excited about Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba playing together.

The two started for the first time against Sheffield United and were key men in a comfortable 3-0 win.

Anthony Martial got a hat trick for the home side. And Solskjaer things much more is to come from the Fernandes-Pogba duo.

"Paul is still a bit away from his best form," Solskjaer told reporters after the match.

"That's natural because it's his first start since September. He's been working hard. I thought we controlled the game.

"Paul and Bruno showed some quality and it's exciting for us to be working with talent like this.

"Now, it's keep on working, onto the next one."
