Paul Pogba enjoying themselves again amid Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's ideal start

Solskjaer has restored positivity to United, says Shaw

Manchester United Confirmed Lineup vs Bournemouth: Bailly, Martial...

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has spoken of his aim to leave his mark on Manchester United by convincing Anthony Martial and David de Gea to sign new, long-term contracts at Old Trafford.

After wins over Cardiff City and Huddersfield, United continued to play with a verve and imagination that was missing during the latter stages of the Mourinho reign.

"That is a top, top performance from a midfielder because it is all-round - it is work-rate, it is risky in the box, winning headers, winning tackles and there is no showboating", he said of Pogba. "It's touch, pass, move", said Solskjaer. Everyone is enjoying themselves and that's what we need.

Solskjaer wants to teach the England striker how to become a fox in the box after he struggled for goals under predecessor Jose Mourinho. "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".

United have now scored 12 times in three games under the Norwegian, but Solskjaer insisted he has just tried to instill what he learned under Alex Ferguson during 11 seasons as a player at Old Trafford.

The Belgian midfielder has been one of the players most affected with the change of coach. We've been at home two games and we have to entertain the fans.

In fact, Solskjaer has heaped praise on Pogba and revealed he wants to build a team around him as United aim to close the gap on the top four and finish in a Champions League spot at the end of the season. "I love working with good players and good people". He doubled the lead with a header, beating goalkeeper Asmir Begovic to a cross from Ander Herrera by the near post.

Solskjaer was full of appreciation for Pogba's performance whilst offering a hint of what he doesn't want to see from the former Juventus midfielder.

Within seconds, however, the visitors had a lifeline, David Brooks crossing from the left for Ake to power a header home.

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.

And the Belgian netted nearly instantly when he squeezed the ball past Begovic on his weaker right foot from another Pogba pass.

The one downside against Bournemouth was a late red card for Eric Bailly after a reckless challenge on Ryan Fraser, meaning he will miss games against Newcastle, Reading in the FA Cup and the trip to Tottenham.
