Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has reaffirmed his commitment to attacking football in the wake of Manchester Uniteds 5-1 win over Cardiff on Saturday and lavished praise on the attacking quartet which laid Neil Warnocks side to waste.

The Norwegian, installed as Uniteds interim manager until the end of the season following the shock sacking of Jose Mourinho, presided over Uniteds biggest away win since Sir Alex Fergusons reign and promised there is more to follow from the likes of Jesse Lingard, Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.

Solskjaer failed to mention Romelu Lukaku, who was given compassionate leave at the weekend and will miss the Boxing Day clash against Huddersfield, and insisted he will continue to build his attack around blistering pace.

But we spoke in the team meeting about how when we get one, we want to get two. When we get two, we want to get three.

Its not always going to happen like it did [at Cardiff] but you have to try and create chances and grind it out, but it worked and with the blistering pace we have up front I dont think any team would like to have Martial, Pogba, Lingard and Rashford running at them.

So why should we stop them? The attacking philosophy is in the walls of Man United. Thats tradition, thats history, thats how we play and want to play.
