Dyche hoping Burnley can end Solskjaer's flawless record at Old Trafford

That result made it eight wins out of eight matches since caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was appointed in December.

Sixth-placed United have won all six league games since the Norwegian replaced Jose Mourinho to close the gap on fourth-placed Chelsea from 11 points to three, but they are still 16 points behind league leaders Liverpool who have 60 points.

An even more unlikely away win is priced up at [14.0], which seems short to me given that the visitors were above 30/1 to win at City on Saturday.

"It was a massive step forward for us performance wise, as a team, the structure in the team was miles, miles, miles better compared to Tottenham a couple of weeks ago where we hung in there and David (De Gea) saved us", he added. And I think that is what we have now. Now, this team is different. "I don't know what input he had but when I got the call, of course, I texted the boss".

McGregor, like many United fans, is enjoying the reversal in the club's fortunes and the fact that they are going out with attacking intent. That's why we play.

Sanchez became the latest player to produce an upturn in form under Solskjaer when he netted against Arsenal.

Sanchez has often been criticised for his form since joining Manchester United in January a year ago.

Asked why the transfer to PSG in the summer of 2017 never went through, Emery explained: 'The circumstances. But it was not possible'.

"We knew they would leave space for me and Alexis with the full-backs pushing on, so it would end up being 3 v 3 or 3 v 2 and we had a lot of moments when we could have countered better, especially in the second half".

'I love it, ' he said.

"If this continues and Manchester United beat PSG [in the Champions League] and win midweek against Burnley then I don't think you can look any further". This is normal. They can be in the position with the possibility to win but it is the reality. With the likes of Martial, Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford pressing with intensity, whether it's down the flanks or through the middle, a lot of the side's goals have been by forcing the opposition into making mistakes and pushing them out of their comfort zone. Bayern Munich, Liverpool and Manchester City are the ideal examples to use, three well-known sides that play effectively within this method that allows them to advance well in all the competitions they take part in season by season.
