Manchester UnitedcoachOle Gunnar Solskjaerhas claimed that the head-to-head clash with Mauricio Pochettino will be a real test for him as a coach.
The Norwegian coach wants to achieve a victory against Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League clash so that the club can give him a permanent job.
Pochettino is a strong candidate to take over as the manager of Manchester United at the end of this season. He is also a favourite candidate of executive vice chairman, Ed Woodward.
"Playing away at Wembley, it's the right test. We look forward to that. That will give me more ideas on how we fight the ranks of top players," Solskjaer said as quoted by Evening Standard.
He continued, "We don't like talking about the fifth, sixth or fourth position in one or two years. The club needs to move and get to the top of the table. "
Solskjaer has revealed his intention to stay at Old Trafford. While club officials are also looking for the next remaining coach candidates, such as Pochettino, Massimiliano Allegri and Zinedine Zidane.
Solskjaer, who has won all five of his fixtures since taking charge on an interim basis following the sacking of Jose Mourinho, is optimistic Paul Pogba will prove his fitness in time.
Pogba missed United's FA Cup victory against Reading on Saturday because of a knock sustained against Newcastle last week.
But he has since joined up with the club's warm weather training camp in Dubai to hand a boost to the Norwegian caretaker boss.
"Paul has had his knock and has had a few days of treatment back home," Solskjaer said of Pogba, who initially stayed in Manchester for treatment.
"Hopefully, we can get Paul on his feet during this week."
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's attacking philosophy has been welcomed by the United squad and the star players have 'flourished' under his tutelage.
