Martial, another United star who felt slighted by Mourinho's acerbic tongue, is back to his best and his 11th goal of the season was the ideal way to celebrate signing a new five contract recently.

Two goals from Paul Pogba and a superb solo effort from Anthony Martial secured a comfortable win for the visitors, their 10th in 11 matches in all competitions under caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Norwegian has overseen 10 wins from his 11 games at the helm and he made six changes in west London with one eye on his first taste of managing the Red Devils in Europe.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer applauded Paul Pogba's sparkling form following the midfielder's classy brace in Manchester United's commanding 3-0 victory over Fulham.

United's stroll by the banks of the River Thames was the flawless preparation for their Champions League last 16 first leg against Paris Saint Germain at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

Pogba capitalised on poor defending to fire past Sergio Rico from an acute angle, before Martial ended a dazzling run of power and pace with a smart finish.

Ranieri's side had started brightly enough and Luciano Vietto struck wide inside the opening minute before divisive Andre Schurrle had two attempts.

Pogba was again influential for United, scoring the first and adding the third from the penalty spot in the second half to make the game safe.

Pogba smashed home the opener after Martial's delicate pass into the box, as the Frenchman dominated early proceedings from central midfield.

Fulham were rattled and nine minutes later Martial showed just why they were right to have been concerned about him. Phil Jones won back the ball and released Martial, who burst forward while holding off Denis Odoi, skipped beyond Maxime Le Marchand and slotted past Rico.

Craven Cottage, normally such a genteel place to watch a game of football, was an angry place with fans aiming chants of "You don't know what you're doing" at a manager who appears to have run out of ideas after three months in the job.

In the second half, Manchester United continued to press and were rewarded with a penalty in the 64th minute.

This was the latest in a long line of concerning displays by Fulham, who look bereft of confidence and ideas at a vital stage of the season.

Pogba appeared happy with the result but remained focused on his side's busy schedule ahead.
