Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: Marcus Rashford is in the form of his life

I thought we played some great stuff at times.

Manchester United have been in a rich vein of form after winning their opening seven games in all competitions under the Norwegian manager.

Manchester United star Alexis Sanchez is set to play at the Emirates for the first time since joining the Red Devils in Friday's FA Cup clash against the Gunners.

The Old Trafford giants were in a tailspin when Jose Mourinho was sacked last month, with defeat at leaders Liverpool leaving them 19 points off the top and 11 behind the Champions League places.

United are now just three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea and Matic is determined to overtake his former club and Arsenal in the Premier League standings.

"No one beats him on work-rate, no one beats him on attitude and he's very confident in front of goal at the moment, he finishes, tries to shoot, he doesn't think twice about it".

The goal puts Rashford's Premier League tally for the season at eight, the most he has ever scored in a league campaign thus far. We will try to give our best to reach the top four until the end of the season. When you come here you know you've got to stay in the game, and we've paid the price for a slow start and poor goals conceded.

Solskjaer was happy with how his team played overall and with the spirit they displayed in seeing out the win. The only thing the manager told us was that we could improve the situation ourselves.

The England global was named man of the match on his 150th appearance for United, having scored in a fourth-successive Premier League match in an all-action display.

The Red Devils were unsafe at times in the second half but looked exhausted, which eventually led Brighton to get one back after a nicely worked goal that was dispatched by Pascal Gross. "But now we are having more success in attack and we are defending better".

"Manchester United can score goals with the quality they have, and we perhaps made it easier for them with the goals we gave away".

"That's the way you get better results. The way he strikes the ball is good enough".
