The day they announce the next manager, if it's me or someone else, good luck.' Solskjaer, who won the FA Cup twice as a player at United, would love to lift the famous trophy as a manager as well.

The Norwegian has hit the ground running at Old Trafford since replacing Jose Mourinho at the helm, taking in Premier League victories against Cardiff, Huddersfield, Bournemouth, Newcastle and seeing off Reading in the FA Cup. Exciting times lie ahead for United, who are also said to be working to strike deals for players in the transfer market.

'Movement-wise, and stuff like that, but obviously he knows the type of striker that I am, ' he said.

Despite the great start, it must be noted that after 21 games, none of Solskjaer's first four opponents are now above 12th place in the table.

Juan Mata's penalty and a well-taken effort in first half stoppage time by Romelu Lukaku, given his first start since Solskjaer took over, sent Unitedinto the fourth round.

Speaking at a news conference on Friday morning before the clash against Reading in the FA Cup, Solskjaer said of the January transfer window: "I don't expect anyone to come in".

"Yeah, you reflect and you try to improve, but you never get complacent and think 'I've done this or that, I've done well'".

Lukaku is targeting a run in the starting eleven and revealed how Solskjaer prefers a one to one approach.

"But we're at Wembley, we're playing against one of the top teams, it doesn't need motivation". In a similar chance just before half-time, Lukaku rounded Anssi Jaakkola and coolly finished to double United's lead put the game past Reading.

"We want competition in all positions". Like his United team-mates, the forward did not have much meaningful time on the ball and looked like his confidence was beginning to slip with frustration sneaking.

Paul Pogba has remained in Manchester to receive treatment on a knock while the rest of the United squad flew to Dubai for a training camp.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes he is the flawless fit for Manchester United as he stakes his claim to land the manager's job on a permanent basis. "We've lost points before [in those fixtures], there are no easy games in the Premier League".

"You could tell everyone wanted the ball and wanted to express themselves and show what they could do".
