And Solskjaer agreed the defeat of Claudio Ranieri's side was the flawless warm-up, telling reporters: "I would have to say so because it's a tough place to come and we gave them the first 10 minutes, maybe played into their hands, some counter-attacks, they put the ball into the box a few times but then, after we scored the first goal, we played a fantastic last 80 minutes".
Pogba has been a key figure since Solskjaer took over from Jose Mourinho December and the caretaker coach was delighted with what he saw from the midfielder.
Pogba was supposed to be United's main man in the biggest games, such as against Paris Saint-Germain at Old Trafford on Tuesday. I am sure PSG will look at Marcus the way we look at Mbappe - he's one of the main threats, ' said Solskjaer after the comfortable win over Fulham.
"It's tough being away from my family, of course, but it's a challenge every single day here because we play Fulham now, we need three points to get into the top four, then it's PSG, then Chelsea - it's just challenge after challenge". All have been exceptional under his management, but Pogba was the standout on a blustery winter's afternoon at one of English football's finest grounds. "Paul can do that with his qualities". But like I said there is still a very long way to go and we have big games coming up and it's not going to be easy.
Pogba is rated by most of his teammates as the best player at the club. He made so many runs against Fulham that the dejected opponents stopped trying to check him.
Paul Pogba scored a brilliant goal from an nearly impossible angle, while Anthony Martial scored an excellent solo goal to double the lead for Solskjaer's men.
In the right back role, young Portuguese Diogo Dalot could replace veteran Ashley Young.
Pogba's skills are appreciated by fans.
Solskjaer wanted to take a few risks this time.
Pogba showed at last year's World Cup he is a world-class performer.
Solskjaer says he spoke to co-owner Avram Glazer after the match when the American visited the United dressing room, but he insists the team's improvement is not simply down to his impact.
