Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: Alexis Sanchez was defensively solid vs Leicester

However, as is often the case on the road, United relied on goalkeeper David de Gea for all three points as a Leicester side that have often troubled the top six this season improved after half-time.

"I think that's far too early [to appoint Solskjaer]", Neville, who made over 600 appearances for United, told Sky Sports.

However, Herrera insists that Solskjaer's record of nine wins and a draw from his first 10 games in charge has given his old club the confidence to beat the likes of Paris Saint-Germain, Liverpool and Chelsea during the pivotal month of February.

The Belgium striker featured regularly under the Portuguese before his sacking in December and has since started just one of United's eight Premier League games under the caretaker manager.

"Both owners (Kjell Inge Røkke and Bjørn Rune Gjelsten) wished me all the best because they knew this is something I dreamed about".

"He's lifted the club on and off the pitch", the ex-England global added.

'I got the player of the year two years ago. Ole has done all of that and has obviously made a big difference. If Solskjaer can come out of this set of fixtures with the right results, then for me he will have earned the United job on a full-time basis. "It's about finding players with the Man United identity and DNA".

Solskjaer's side were compelled to respond when Chelsea dispatched Huddersfield Town 5-0 on Saturday, and beating Leicester means they are back to within two points of Maurizio Sarri's side, who sit fourth.

The 13 time Premier League winners are now back in the race to finish in the top four, are still in the FA Cup after a win away to Arsenal, and are certainly more positive about their chances against PSG in the Champions League.

"Ole has arrived and changed the way everyone is feeling, including the supporters, and all of a sudden there is a little bit of excitement back. So now, everything is going very well, everyone is playing at their level".
