Solskjaer insists he can make Man Utd whiz Rashford a better finisher

Lydia FlemingDec 31, 2018

He is just a really positive manager, he knows what the club needs and also what the fans want in the way we are playing. Maybe we just realised that we are Manchester United, we need to keep up, we need to be at the top of the league.

"We are Manchester United and we need to be at the top of the league, it is just a reaction of all of the players and everyone is enjoying themselves". "That's how I celebrate my goals".

Pogba scored two goals for the second successive match and set up another as United's run of wins since sacking Jose Mourinho and appointing Solskjaer was extended to a third game.

It wasn't a ideal day for United - they had defender Eric Bailly sent off for a reckless challenge later in the second half.

With less than five minutes on the clock, Rashford showed what he's capable of after producing a moment of magic as he bamboozled the Bournemouth defence with some stunning foot-work before setting up Paul Pogba with a pin-point cross to give the Frenchman the simple task of tapping home the opening goal.

The Red Devils will be looking for their third win on the trot under Solskjaer and at Old Trafford, they should be considered favorites to earn all three points against the Cherries, who have lost three of their last four PL fixtures.

The justice ministry announced on Wednesday that deliberations were continuing and were "not dependent on political events". As a deadline for the legislation loomed, his religious coalition partners were demanding the legislation be weakened.

However, Shaw - who suffered more than most of the United players from Mourinho's public criticism -told Sky Sports it is not the results that have transformed the mentality at Old Trafford but the manner of the wins over Cardiff and Huddersfield.

Pogba has impressed in all three of those contests - across which the Red Devils have scored 12 times - having been restored to the starting line-up by Solskjaer. Pogba soon doubled their lead, as he headed home Ander Herrera's sweeping cross.

Only the post then denied Pogba a first ever hat-trick when his low strike from the edge of the box came off the woodwork.

Our influential no.6 picked up 84 per cent of the votes in a poll voted for by fans in our official app, after scoring two goals and assisting another in what was an all-action, accomplished display.

Solskjaer said: "They've created some great chances today and some fantastic attacking football at times and it's pleasing".

Bournemouth nearly got another back, Eric Bailly blocking from King before United made a change, introducing Romelu Lukaku in place of Rashford.
