"That's why you know you've got to defend really well against them, and certainly not give away what I would regard as disappointing goals".
Solskjaer - who suggested that match-winner Marcus Rashford is a challenger for the title of best current Premier League striker - said the top four was a genuine target for United, though third is surely still a firm aspiration.
Rashford's fine solo goal made it 2-0 after Paul Pogba had scored his 10th of the season from the penalty spot.
Lukaku's one and only start for Manchester United since Solskjaer's appointment came during a FA Cup match against Reading, but the 25-year-old has still scored three goals for the Red Devils during that time. It is great working with him.
Here’s the weather forecast during Sunday’s ‘super moon’ lunar eclipse over Carolinas
This Monday, if the weather sticks to the forecast, you'll be able to see the Super Wolf Blood Moon early in the morning. A supermoon occurs when the moon is within 90 percent of its closest possible distance to the Earth.

"Possibly one or two going out on loan, but I don't think we'll be bringing anything in".
Solskjaer, who is Manchester United's record goalscorer as a substitute, added that Lukaku is now in a similar position to he was during his time at Old Trafford, where he often sat behind Andy Cole, Dwight Yorke and Teddy Sheringham in the pecking order. "It's a challenge for us to get to where we as a club should be". But in any game of football you are never sure until it's over. There's loads more pressure at the bottom when I was with Cardiff. I don't think we were at our best, and probably United weren't either.
