"It's just a different style of play, we are more offensive I would say, so we create more chances, and a bit higher as well".

"It's an efficient game and Paul knows he's at his best when it's an efficient game". "It is just a reaction of all of the players and everyone is enjoying themselves", said Pogba. "We are coming back, and there is still a long way to go, but to finish the year like that is lovely", said the French World Cup victor. I studied finishing, I studied goals, I studied movement.

United have scored 12 goals in three games since Solskjaer took over, while the 45-year-old followed only Sir Matt Busby and Mourinho in winning his first three league games as manager.

Nathan Ake decreased the deficit just before the break, but Romelu Lukaku - back from compassionate leave - marked his return by scoring in the second half, with the only disappointment for the hosts a late red card for Eric Bailly.

The futures of the French forward and the Spanish goalkeeper - both of whom are out of contract at the end of next season - figure prominently in the thinking of the club's hierarchy, and although Solskjaer has merely been "loaned" to United from Molde until the end of the season, that will not prevent the former United forward from attempting to convince the pair to remain at Old Trafford beyond then.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Pogba said: "It's different".

United's dominance told again in the 33rd minute, Pogba heading Ander Herrera's fine right-wing delivery past the stranded Asmir Begovic.

United made the breakthrough in the fifth minute of the match when Pogba tapped home from close range, but the goal was all about the quality of in-form Rashford.

Victory over Bournemouth would see Solskjaer become only the third United manager to win their first three matches.

Pogba certainly deserves praise for his performance, but Rashford was the best player on the pitch.

Pogba rattled the post with a low strike in the 75th minute as the Frenchman continued to search for his first senior hat-trick, but he ultimately had to settle for his second brace in the space of four days.
