Rashford Can Be As Good As Kane - Solskjaer

Jesse Lingard says Manchester United intend to continue their entertaining brand of football under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer when they travel to Tottenham on Sunday. 'Of course I can not be unfair with both managers.

He said when quizzed on a possible extended stay in the Red Devils hot-seat: "We haven't had that conversation".

Speaking in an interview with MUTV, Jones said: "It is about momentum and we need to keep building that momentum, whoever we play".

'It's not fair to judge in both ways and it's not fair to judge Mourinho's job.

"Of course, United will come to win and for him (Solskjaer) there is massive motivation or challenge to manage Manchester United".

Kane, 25, has set the goalscoring standards in English football over the past three years - he was the league's top scorer in 2015/16 and 2016/17 before finishing runner-up to Liverpool's Mohamed Salah last season.

'I have huge respect for Mourinho and of course for Solksjaer.

The World Cup victor belatedly joined the club's warm weather training camp in Dubai, which Solskjaer claimed was a successful trip on his return to Manchester.

Pochettino, though, does not think that will have an effect and says the reverse fixture, which Spurs won 3-0, will have even less bearing.

He said: "It was very good".

'We are going to compete in our best way.

"Of course we're going to be in a different club, because it's not the same to play in Wembley for the last two years almost. We are going to compete in our best way, I am sure, and it will be tough".

Former Chelsea defender Jason Cundy has admitted that he would like Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United to play out a draw on Sunday as he is concerned about the Red Devils. I remember (Solskjaer) when he scored the second goal in the injury time and how I shouted.

A central part of Ferguson's philosophy was the development of players from the club's academy, which Rashford joined at the age of seven.

"The last five games haven't been too bad but there is always things to work on; the relationship between players, the cohesion and the understanding".
