Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could boost his chances of landing the Manchester United job on a permanent basis by reaching the quarter finals of the Champions League.

Solskjaer has enjoyed an excellent spell in interim charge of Old Trafford, winning his first eight games.

That run came to an end against Burnley in midweek but United fought back from 2-0 down to rescue a point.

United's form has led to calls for Solskjaer to get the job on a permanent basis but he is expected back at Molde at the end of the season.
