Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted he will not want to leave Manchester United in the summer after their 2-0 win at Newcastle saw him match Sir Matt Busby's record of winning his first four games as manager of the club.

Second-half goals from substitute Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford ensured United maintained their perfect start under Solskjaer.

The interim manager has watched his side score 14 goals and concede three in four Premier League matches, with United now six points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.

Highlights from Manchester United's win against Newcastle in the Premier League.

Solskjaer is set to remain in charge until the end of the season, but when asked if he would not want to leave in May, he said with a smile: "Of course I won't, I don't want to.

"It's such a great bunch of players, a fantastic atmosphere, but it's the next game, it's the next game, it's the next game and I'm doing my job as long as I'm here."

The victory may have matched a feat only Busby has previously managed at United, but Solskjaer recalled the approach of his former manager Sir Alex Ferguson, who he said would have challenged the side to look forward and win the next four games as well.

Solskjaer added: "That will be in the books, but it's nothing that I'm thinking of. I'm just thinking about the next game because if you win four, you can win another four at this club. That's the challenge and that's the standard that we're known for.

"The gaffer used to challenge us on them and of course when we've won four, you can go onto the next four and think about them."

Man Utd striker Marcus Rashford is stepping past the stage of having potential, according to Gary Neville

Meanwhile, Rashford put in a man-of-the-match display at St James' Park on Wednesday night, leading to plaudits from Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville, and Solskjaer joined his former team-mate in praising the England striker.

The Norwegian said: "He gets kicked and he gets tackled, he goes for headers, he wins, he challenges, he runs - he is going to be a top, top number nine, definitely.

"But then again, we've got Rom, so sometimes he'll play on the right, sometimes on the left, sometimes through the middle. He'll get enough games."

My view: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has a calm positive temperament and he's doing his job very well, also Man-United players are happy under their interim boss, so why change him. United should allow him to manage the club for two years and see how things go.
