Paul Pogba brace leads Manchester United to emphatic win over Bournemouth

Paul Pogba brace leads Manchester United to emphatic win over Bournemouth

He said: 'Our manager told us on the first day, the best way to win a game when you are in the lead is to keep attacking and this what the club has always been about.

"It is touch, pass, move, he plays an efficient game and Paul knows he is at his best when he plays that game", added the Norwegian.

'When you win and score lots of goals you want to play as soon as possible and I hope we perform on Wednesday against Newcastle as we have today.

"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", said Pogba. Pogba, a World Cup victor with France, celebrated that goal by performing a playful shimmy with his arms folded across his stomach - a move that TV cameras revealed he had been practising on the pitch before kickoff.

It was not all positive for United on the afternoon, however, as Bailly received a straight red card in the 79th minute for a poor challenge on Fraser, which leaves Solskjaer light at the back as Chris Smalling is still on the sidelines.

"I'm really pleased that he'll get goals".

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. "That's how we want to play, we want to attack, the manager wants to attack, and that's what we do on the pitch". Ake then had a towering header blocked by David de Gea in the 26th minute during an open period of the game.

The roles were reversed 10 minutes later when this time Pogba's header teed up Rashford for a powerful strike that was deflected just behind.

Solskjaer has spoken of his desire to see Pogba break into the box more regularly and he had the simplest of tasks to prod the ball into an empty net after Marcus Rashford had bewildered the Bournemouth defence.

Eric Bailly made an excellent block to prevent King from scoring a second for Bournemouth 20 minutes from time and moments later, Lukaku made his return to the team as he took the place of Rashford, who suffered a slight groin strain.
