United take on Wolves tonight in the FA Cup at the Molineux, in what could be Solskjaer’s best chance at a trophy this season.
Manchester City have scraped past Swansea in the FA Cup, with United the only other ‘Top Six’ side left.
But they face a strong Wolves side, who have been a revelation this season in their first year back in the Premier League.
They sit seventh in the table and have taken points off City and Chelsea this year, while also knocking Liverpool out of the FA Cup – and Solskjaer is not taking any chances.
The Norweigan has claimed the likes of Chelsea and Arsenal in the FA Cup but he has named a strong line-up tonight.
And in the process, he has reversed a major Mourinho decision as a result.
Among the starters is Paul Pogba, who had his fair share of problems with The Special One.
One of them was a huge fallout that saw the Frenchman stripped of the vice-captaincy.
It came after Pogba criticised Mourinho’s tactics against, coincidentally, Wolves earlier in the season at Old Trafford – where they drew 1-1 in September.
But Solskjaer has reinstalled the World Cup winner as captain tonight against Nuno Espirito Santo’s men.
Pogba has been one of several sensations under the former Cardiff manager, along with Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial.
The former Juventus midfielder has scored nine times since Solskjaer was appointed, including against the Blues in the previous round of the FA Cup.
Meanwhile, Solskjaer has told his men to stay in as many competitions as possible this year.
He said: “The more games you win, the more confidence you breed, the more hunger there is in the players.
“Every single game that you win puts another layer on that, on the way to becoming the team that we want to be.
“So I don’t agree with Gary Neville when he says that teams should go out of this and this to focus on that.”
