Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was extremely happy with how Manchester United midfielder Fred performed during the 3-1 win over Brighton in the English Premier League this Sunday.

Red Devils are now up to seventh in the EPL and a Man Utd manager Solskjaer pointed out that Fred was one of the major stars of the game.

He set us off today with his midfield play, we won the ball, had to get after them,’ said the United boss. ‘Propper and [Dale] Stephens, we couldn’t let them get on the ball and Fred was maybe the catalyst.

After an inconsistent start at the Old Trafford, Fred has now started to make his mark and has appeared in all of the last five United games, four of which the Red Devils have won.

Solskjaer was visibly pleased with everyone in the team and praised the whole team after the massive and important victory.

We should have scored many more goals,’ said the Norwegian. ‘It was an excellent performance from the lads, when you see them going forward it is a joy to watch.

Anthony Martial did not get a goal but he was outstanding. Brandon Williams was excellent too – he has had some good games already and he seems he wants to be out there and enjoy himself.

The table does not really matter at the moment, we need to keep improving and keep winning games and see where it takes us.’

Premier League will now return after the international break.
