"They've [players] not said anything to me about any handbrake (under Mourinho)," said Solskjaer. "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."

He added: "It’s 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 don’t 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. That’s tradition, that’s history, that’s how we play and want to play."
