3 wins on the trot for United

Manchester United defeated Bournemouth 4-1 at Old Trafford to secure their third straight win under interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Two goals from Paul Pogba and one each for Marcus Rashford and Romelu Lukaku helped the Red Devils brush aside Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth side comfortably in front of their home supporters.

And Solskjaer heaped praise on star man Pogba following the victory.

“That today is a top, top performance for a midfielder. Because it’s all-round. It’s work-rate, he’s dangerous in the box, he wins headers, wins tackles, and there’s no showboating.

“It’s touch, pass, move and he plays the efficient game. And Paul knows he’s at his best when he plays that game.

“Yeah, there was one flick maybe that he missed halfway through the second half that he knows he could have done better with, but there’s not a lot else he could have done,” he said.

The only negative from the game was a red card for Eric Bailly following a needless challenge, but United held on for the win to move within three points of Unai Emery’s Arsenal in fifth place.
