He is just a really positive manager, he knows what the club needs and also what the fans want in the way we are playing.

Paul Pogba is feeling so good at Manchester United these days that he's practicing his goal celebrations during the pre-game warmup.

He added: "As I've said to all the players when I speak to them, we want to see the best out of them, we want to see them enjoy themselves and express themselves, within the framework, within how we want the team to play".

Sir Alex Ferguson looked to be in high spirits as Manchester United signed off for 2018 with a thumping 4-1 win over Bournemouth at Old Trafford in the Premier League. I studied finishing, I studied goals, I studied movement.

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.

United finished the game with 10 men after Eric Bailly was sent off in the 79th for a late scissor tackle on Ryan Fraser but the hosts still eased to a third straight victory under Solskjaer, who took over from the fired Mourinho earlier this month.

The Muhammadu Buhari's led administration has been accused of playing ethnicity game in the fight against Boko Haram terrorists. In particular, they highlighted the attack on an army base in Metele, Borno state in which about 100 soldiers were killed.

"It's quite a few years since I was here, but this is how it was", he said.

Speaking to Sky Sports, the left back told of how the players and fans can immediately see the difference in the positivity of the new manager on and off the pitch.

That confidence was more than justified as Pogba was at the heart of most United attacks and he doubled the lead with a header, beating goalkeeper Asmir Begovic to a cross from Ander Herrera by the near post.

Pogba has impressed in all three of those contests - across which the Red Devils have scored 12 times - having been restored to the starting line-up by Solskjaer. Keeping with the tradition of the club, the Norwegian has brought attacking and expansive football back at Old Trafford.

Manchester United were outstanding on Sunday afternoon, and deserved the three points despite occasionally looking shaky in defence. "He's one of the best players in the world", Solskjaer said in a press conference, via MUTV.

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.
