Paul Pogba was happy with how Manchester United cruised to a 3-0 win over Fulham on Saturday lunchtime.

The Red Devils continued their momentum when they travelled to Craven Cottage as Pogba handed his side an early lead with his 11th goal of the season before Anthony Martial increased the deficit nine minutes later with a sublime finish.

The in-form midfielder then scored the third goal (his 12th of the campaign so far) from the penalty spot in the second half as the visitors cruised on to seal their eighth Premier League win under caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

United have now moved into fourth spot, one point above Chelsea who play Manchester City on Sunday, and following the triumph, Pogba told Sky Sports: "It feels great, that’s what we wanted since Ole [Gunnar Solskjaer] came. We talked about this there’s still a long way to go but we want to stay there.

"We were very far behind and now we get back to the top four but there’s still a long way to go with big games coming up so it won’t be easy. The big teams now they just stay there. It will be the big games coming up now that decide where we end the season."

On his scoring and penalty technique, the Frenchman replied: "It’s always great to score goals, most important is to win games. When you score but don’t win it’s not the same feeling. I shot, I just tried with my left foot and the ball went in.

"I just focus on trying to put the ball inside the goal. This game was very important, like you can see we are fourth, even though Chelsea haven’t played. It’s a good sign, even though we have to carry on to stay there."
