Man United have their club back - Scholes revels in Solskjaer revival

The Norwegian, who is due to return to his job as Molde coach at the end of the season, has earned the support of United's players and supporters as a potential long-term appointment after changing the mood at Old Trafford on and off the pitch.

Today marks five years since Mata moved to United, and while there have been metamorphoses all around him, it is hard to shake the feeling that his career has rather stood still.

United have done extremely well under Solskjaer after he replaced Jose Mourinho.

"There are the three who play the most but then you've got Romelu (Lukaku), you've got Juan (Mata), you've got Alexis, so I've got a front six I can rotate with", said Solskjaer.

Both teams will certainly be going all out for victory, with Solskjaer and Arsenal boss Unai Emery each looking to secure some silverware in their debut seasons at their new clubs.

However, Arsenal have also suffered the aftereffects of the deal that took Sanchez to United.

Speaking before United's fourth FA Cup clash with Arsenal, the former United full back praised Solskjaer's "ruthless" streak.

Both form and fitness have deserted the Chilean since he bagged reportedly the most lucrative contract in Premier League history last January in a swap deal that saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan head to Arsenal. "A lot of the times, the games I watched, it was bad".

"Fellaini and Rojo are still a bit away", Solskjaer said in his pre-match press conference.

"I think he'll love it if the crowd turn against him", the United boss said in an interview with MUTV.

The win over Brighton made it seven wins in a row for The Red Devils, and they're yet to lose since the appointment of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as interim manager. "He has been fantastic in training, his attitude has been spot on so hopefully he'll enjoy the game".

Ramsey might be leaving Arsenal in the summer, but he remains a very good option and could cause Manchester United problems with his forward running. And a major talking point has been the way Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba are leading the attacks and scoring goals.

"You don't really have to prioritise [anything] when I have a big squad anyway so, of course, there will be one or two changes [at the Emirates Stadium], but it's not like you prioritise one ahead of the other".
