Paul Pogba's Attitude Praised By Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

"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 touch, pass, move, and he plays the efficient game, and Paul knows he's at his best when he plays that game.

"We needed to win and it was a great performance as well so we're coming back". But, when Manchester United lose possession, instead of drifting back into our own half and inviting an attack, they instead remain in the opponent's half pressuring their players into making mistakes-something that was key to our town rivals winning the league last season.

Paul Pogba took a thinly veiled swipe at Jose Mourinho by declaring that Manchester United were playing in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for a manager that "wants to attack" as the midfielder toasted a "beautiful" finish to a hard year. "That's how I celebrate my goals".

"He's been top class and we're looking to build a team around him, of course, but there are so many quality players".

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

He's bringing that attacking, quick play back to Old Trafford.


Ashley Young narrowly failed to find Nemanja Matic with an early cross, but Solskjaer's side were in front after only five minutes when Pogba struck, touching home from inside the six-yard box after brilliant work from Rashford, who twisted away from Nathan Ake and Diego Rico to cross.

Perhaps then they were happier after Bailly was sent off in the 79th minute for a reckless tackle, though it did nothing to alter the score line as United played on with the verve and vigour seen so far under the caretaker manager. 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.

Pogba continued his post-Mourinho rampage with a hand in all of the goals that came, today - including scoring two of them.

Against Bournemouth, United is expected to take home another three points against a club it has done very well against in recent years.

One of the requests that Solskjaer made to his players is that they should improve in possession.

But United had to see out the final 11 minutes a man light after Eric Bailly needlessly lunged in on Ryan Fraser to see a straight red card.
