Herrera reveals Solskjaer told players to attack on day one

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.

His work rate is unbelievable., He chases, closes down, runs in behind and his skill for Paul's goal was great. "It's touch, pass, move", said Solskjaer.

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. That's what we need, a team needs to enjoy playing football".

"It's different. We still won some games with the old manager, it's just a different style of play", Pogba said.

The Norwegian is a long-time fan of Rashford and frequently sung the player's praises before he replaced sacked United boss Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford.

"This is how it was". "I've gone about the job as I experienced it here as a young coach".

Indeed, the shackles have been taken off United's attacking players, but the club are still in desperate need of a new centre-back ahead of the opening of the January transfer window. We've been at home two games and the crowd, we have to entertain them. "So I am really looking forward to working with him".

Nathan Ake and Diego Rico were left beaten by Rashford's combination of fleet-footed dribbling and pace before his cross perfectly picked out Pogba's run.

However, in stark contrast to the final days of Mourinho's tenure, it seemed only a matter of time before United struck again and once more it was Pogba who provided the finish with a bullet header from Ander Herrera's cross. It's a big ask, but the form they are in.

45' GOAL! This time it's Rashford who slides at Martial's ball from the middle of the box. 3-0.

For all the improvements of late, though, Solskjaer is still waiting for a first clean sheet since November as Ake beat Matic to power home David Brooks's cross.

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

He was also inches away from completing a hat-trick when Asmir Begovic tipped his shot on to a post.

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.
