Lukaku praised the awesome change in the team and went on to name England defender Shaw as his best player this season.

"That's what Ole wants," said Lukaku. "Everybody is talking about us being offensively really good, but defensively we're doing really well.

"Chris Smalling coming in for the last couple of games has been brilliant and Luke Shaw has been the best player of the season for me.

"Ashley Young has been consistent and David de Gea is the best No 1 in the world. From the midfield to the front, we try to help out and make sure the defence has an easy task. We did that [against Liverpool] and it was all about the team.

"You always want to win these type of games, but for us it was about being mentally strong, having had players injured. We had to be resilient."

Man United legend Gary Neville believes there will be protests if the club refuse to hand Solskjaer a permanent deal in the summer.

"Three months ago if it was 0-0 at home they would have been singing "attack, attack, attack"," Neville told Sky Sports after the match.

"They were singing "Ole Gunnar Solskjaer" all of the second half. The mood has completely transformed.

"He has the crowd with him. I think at this moment in time if you're the board you are not in a position where you could give it to someone else, I think there would be a mutiny.

"The fans love him. They were getting behind the team in the second-half but mostly they were singing for him."
