Wolves were the last side to start with the same XI for five consecutive Premier League matches in December 2019.

"I don't think the club would panic or go insane with plans that we've already talked about for years to come", Solskjaer told reporters in a virtual news conference ahead of Monday's Premier League home game against 12th-placed Southampton.

Solskjaer's side are chasing Champions League qualification and silverware in the FA Cup and Europa League.

"But, the uncertainty of dates, how much holiday can you given them, how will next season look like, it's still a little bit up in the air".

"I don't think it's like dramatic decisions, the word you said there", he said.

Solskjaer has named an unchanged squad in the last four matches, and they have delivered with impeccable performances to keep their hopes of playing in next season's Champions League alive.

"I don't think the club would panic or go insane with plans that we've already talked about for years to come", he said.

Considering United conceded twice against struggling Bournemouth in their last home game, odds of 19/20 (1.95) look like solid value on them being joined on the scoresheet by a Southampton team that has failed to strike in just two of their 21 away fixtures.

"You have to have a long-term plan but of course short-term maybe some decisions will be easier to make if or if not you get the Champions League".

Striker Mason Greenwood has had an impressive breakthrough campaign, scoring 16 goals in all competitions, and Solskjaer brushed off suggestions that the 18-year-old had exceeded expectations.

Pogba has been asked to play deeper by Solskjaer and that has seen him control matches more often and spray passes forwards to his teammates in fantastic fashion. If we win all our games I don't think we have something to worry about. But how much do you know about other teenage stars that have played for the Red Devils over the years?

"He's a fantastic boy to work with, he loves football and at the moment he gets results and rewards for his hard work".
