Anthony Martial out for Manchester United

Pogba had only scored two Premier League goals in the same game on one other occasion - the derby victory at Manchester City in April that ranked as one of the highlights of Mourinho's time in charge.

Pogba and United will be back in action at home to Bournemouth on Sunday as Solskjaer's side seek a third straight win since Mourinho's sacking.

"I want my team to play in a certain way and you give them little pointers here and there, and it's a work in progress. Take risks", said Jesse Lingard, who scored twice in Cardiff, at what Solskjaer's message has been.

"I went up and there were a few journalists gathered around", Devaney informed the Caught Offside podcast. We have played against a world-class side, we have seen why Paul (Pogba) is a World Cup victor, two world-class strikes, and this is why we lost this game. "That's tradition, that's history, that's how we play and want to play".

Most United fans would like to see Diogo Dalot come in for Ashley Young, who wore the captain's armband in Cardiff, but Nemanja Matic earned himself a reprieve and Ander Herrera showed he can press with energy.

"A Man United team should never ever be outworked", said Solskjaer to highlight the minimum he expects.

"It was extra special but I was surprisingly calm", said Solskjaer, whose family were among those watching.

Manchester United interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer celebrates defeating Huddersfield after the English Premier League soccer match at Old Trafford Manchester England Wednesday Dec. 26 2018

Manchester United will play hosts to David Wagner's Huddersfield Town side in matchweek 19 of the 2018-19 Premier League on Wednesday.

Fans must keep their excitement and expectations in check, but after scoring five goals in the league for the first time since Ferguson's final game in charge, how can supporters bedecked in red not feel at least a little jolly?

"So why should we stop them?"

Martial and Lukaku missed the game due to illness and a private matter respectively.

David de Gea could do nothing about Cardiff's goal from the penalty spot and Luke Shaw's marauding performance from left back was so good that both of those players will expect to play again here.

As has been the case umpteen times this season, Huddersfield paid the price for failing to capitalise when in the ascendancy.
