Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has helped bring back "the old school Manchester United" and persuaded Jesse Lingard that they can mount a Premier League title challenge next season.

Sanchez has struggled to convince since arriving from Premier League rivals Arsenal in January a year ago, while former boss Jose Mourinho repeatedly called on United's hierarchy to spend more in the quest for success.

Jones has become the third player to be handed a new contract since Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho in December, following Scott McTominay and Anthony Martial.

Despite costing vast amounts of money in transfers and salaries, Di Maria and Falcao (loan) left Old Trafford after one season.

Following an upturn in from since he took over, United are still 14 points behind table-toppers Manchester City and Liverpool, but Solskjaer has suggested he would not need to splash the cash to make up the ground.

But even if Smalling can not make himself fit, still Solskjaer will have very little to worry about since the likes of Lindelof, Phil Jones and Eric Bailly have been doing exceptionally well at the back.

Phil Jones has signed an extended contract with Manchester United that will keep him at Old Trafford until 2023, as per the club's official website. "Of course you take one step at a time and that's one of the goals we've set and if we do so we want to stay there and improve on that", Solskjær said.

United will look to continue their excellent run of form when they travel to relegation-threatened Fulham in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon. "As long as we're winning games, that's all that matters".

"We're too far behind this year, obviously", said Solskjaer. "When I came in at Molde, they were 10th in 2010 and then in 2011 we won the league, so never say never".

"So it is just a case of keeping going, winning as many games as we can so we can ensure a place in those Champions League spots at the end of the season". "We're delighted Phil has committed his future to the club".
