Pogba enjoying "different style" after Mourinho exit

"It's just a reaction of all the players, everybody enjoying themselves. 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. We managed the game much better than against Huddersfield.

The French World Cup victor played a part in four of United's five goals at Cardiff last weekend to get Solskjaer off to a flying start before scoring twice against Huddersfield on Boxing Day. But one win in their last five games has this team needing a big moment to get back on track.

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 studied finishing, I studied goals, I studied movement.

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. There's been plenty of talk about the unshackling of Pogba since United's win at Cardiff, and this display was as good a sign as any that finally, two and-a-half years after returning to Old Trafford, the Frenchman is delivering what he's truly capable of. "We are more offensive and we are creating more chances and that is how we want to play".

United doubled their lead in the 34th minute, however, when Pogba rose highest inside the Bournemouth box to head a wonderful Herrera cross into the back of the net for his fourth goal in the space of four days. Throughout his time as a Manchester United player, he has had to alternated roles between attacking and defending roles, jobs which has to be done by two separate specialists in the modern game.

Starting XI: De Gea (6); Shaw (7), Lindelof (6), Bailly (5), Young (6); Pogba (8*), Matic (6), Herrera (7); Martial (7), Rashford (8), Lingard (6).

Pogba then came inches away from completing a first hat trick at United when Begovic tipped his low strike against the post in the 77th.

Manchester United were outstanding on Sunday afternoon, and deserved the three points despite occasionally looking shaky in defence.

WORST PLAYER - In a game of little error, Eric Bailly slightly tarnished United's performance.
