Manchester United 4-1 Bournemouth: Pogba on song yet again as Solskjaer’s rampant start continues [Tweet]

A 4-1 win over Bournemouth made it three wins out of three for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the Manchester United caretaker manager, with Paul Pogba scoring twice for the hosts.

A player reborn under the temporary boss, Pogba continued his fine run, scoring just five minutes into the game as he tapped the ball into an open net following some fine work by Marcus Rashford. He then went on to double his tally in the 33rd minute, heading home from Ander Herrera’s first time cross.

Rashford then got himself in on the act as he stretched to provide the finishing touches to Anthony Martial’s cross, before Bournemouth pulled a goal back at the stroke of half-time through Nathan Ake. The second half was played at a much slower pace, with Romelu Lukaku rounding off the win with a fine finish, before Eric Bailly was sent off for a rash tackle, ten minute from time.

Unsurprisingly, Pogba was the primary subject of discussion for fans, with the Frenchman scoring nearly half the goals that Manchester United have scored under Solskjaer, who got some credit for the resurgence as well.

Marcus Rashford is another player who has been in fine form under Solskjaer, and the fans made note of the Englishman’s brilliant performance.

Finally, Solskjaer has become the toast of the town, for bringing the happy days back at Manchester United fans, as his 100 percent start as caretaker boss continued.
