Since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has taken over at Manchester United, the famous club appears to be returning to the top of English football.

After a disappointing first half of the season under Jose Mourinho, United have climbed back up to sixth place. They're now level on points with Arsenal - and just three behind Chelsea in fourth.

Under Solskjaer, the team has also returned to the philosophy that it's become so well-known for. And changing that was something Gary Neville heavily criticised Mourinho for. 

"At Manchester United you play fast, attacking football in an entertaining way," he said, following the 'Special One's' sacking.

"You bring young players through and give them belief. And you win. Manchester United's philosophy is so deep and so meaningful, it's like Barcelona's and it's like Ajax's. 

"No one should ever be allowed to enter Manchester United's training ground or Old Trafford ever again to shape their own philosophy. That is done."


The resurgence of Marcus Rashford under interim boss Solskjaer proves that ideology still stands at United - and he's apparently not the only young player with a bright future at the club. 

That's because according to Ashely Young, there are a number of 'incredible' talents breaking through at Man United - and he's revealed four that have caught his eye recently. 


The defender has name-checked Tahith Chong, Angel Gomes, James Garner and Mason Greenwood as the quartet leading the youth revolution right now.

"There's that many," Young said when asked about youngsters breaking through at Old Trafford, per the Mirror.


"Chongy has been with us, Jimmy Garner has been with us, Mason's been with us, Angel's been with us, just to name a few. 


"They've been given an opportunity, obviously they travelled with us when we went away, and they are incredible talents. 

"I'm sure if they keep their feet on the ground and keep working hard, they can do well."

With United on a seven-game winning streak under Solskjaer and a number of players appearing to break into the first team, the future certainly looks bright at Old Trafford.
