Jack Gaughan for the Daily Mail

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted that he does not want to leave Manchester United in the summer.

Victory at Newcastle United meant Solskjaer continued his 100 per cent start as interim manager and he challenged his players to continue that form with tougher tests ahead.

He also became the first United manager to win opening four games since Sir Matt Busby 73 years ago.

Tottenham await after the FA Cup clash against Reading, with United now just six points adrift of the Champions League places.

‘I don’t want to (leave) – of course I won’t,’ Solskjaer said. ‘It’s such a great bunch of players, fantastic atmosphere, but it’s the next game, it’s the next game.

‘I’m doing my job as long as I’m here. If you win four you can win another four with this club.

‘That’s the challenge, that’s the standard we know. That used to be the challenge from the gaffer (Sir Alex Ferguson).’ 

Romelu Lukaku opened the scoring seconds after coming off the bench and revealed Solskjaer is already rubbing off on United’s attackers during training at Carrington.

Marcus Rashford – whose free-kick made Lukaku’s goal – is a chief beneficiary, scoring the second, and Solskjaer heaped praise on the 21 year-old.

‘He was calm, composed and just passed it past the goalkeeper,’ he added. ‘But his free-kicks, that the first one against Cardiff, and then he does it again, he’s got a great hit. He must have been watching Cristiano Ronaldo when he was practising.

‘That was a tough test today, he gets kicked, and he gets tackled, he goes for headers, he wins, he challenges, he runs.

‘Marcus is going to be a top, top number nine, definitely but then 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.’ 

He said after: 'It's such a great bunch of players... I'm doing my job as long as I'm here'

Rafa Benitez bemoaned Newcastle’s luck and would not discuss Jonjo Shelvey’s horror tackle on Paul Pogba. The Frenchman left St James’ Park limping.

‘We were not lucky with many decisions,’ Benitez said. ‘I think we did enough to deserve more. It’s the final decision, that’s the key if we want to score more goals.

‘It’s a pity that after the big effort you concede a goal like that and lose the game.’
