Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said his team is enjoying rewards of mental improvement and physical robustness.
United beat Fulham 2-1 on Wednesday night to complete a fifth Premier League win in six games while taking top position.
"We've done better in tighter games; we've won loads of 1-0s and 2-1s," Ole told SkySports.

"That was a point we spoke about early on before the season had started, that we needed to stop getting draws and win more games.
"We've shown great improvement in the mentality as well as physical robustness. Tonight, we stayed the whole 90 minutes again,” concluded the Norwegian boss.
