To say Manchester United look a different team under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would perhaps be an understatement.

In the space of just six games, the Norwegian has transformed the attitude around the club and has got star players fulfilling their potential once again.

Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba all regressed under Jose Mourinho, but now look ready to conquer the footballing world.

United's 1-0 win away at Tottenham yesterday has moved them level on points with Arsenal and just six behind Chelsea in fourth.

With the two London clubs playing each other on Saturday, United will be able to make up more ground if they can beat Brighton at Old Trafford.

A lot of the change at the club is down to the positivity of Solskjaer, but it seems legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson has had a serious input since Mourinho's departure.

As reported by Manchester Evening News, the 77-year-old has been "very, very involved" in proceedings.

One dressing room source has stated that Ferguson has had a significant input in team selection and has helped Solskjaer with player analysis.

While the team selection does rest solely with Solskjaer, he values his former boss so much that he seeks his opinion on the matter.

Ferguson has recently visited the Red Devils' training sessions at Carrington, something which could become a more regular occurrence.

"I've had him for 15 years," Solskjaer said on Ferguson. "Obviously he's influenced me more in those 15 years than he's done last week, but I keep him informed.

"He paid us a visit yesterday. He enjoyed his time at the training ground, we had a nice few chats with us and the staff and he encouraged us.

"He knows the staff I've got are Man United through and through and he knows we're going to do whatever we can, up to the last second we're here, for Man United to do as best as we can."

Maybe Mourinho should have asked for Ferguson's assistance when he had the chance.
