Ole Gunnar Solskjaer became only the third manager, after Sir Matt Busby and Jose Mourinho, to start his Manchester United career with three successive league wins as his side’s remarkable turnaround continued.
Anthony Martial returned to the United line-up to reunite the attack that had looked so dynamic in Solskjaer’s first game in charge, the 5-1 win over Cardiff.
The feel-good factor around Old Trafford that has come with Solskjaer’s return was magnified after just five minutes, when Marcus Rashford‘s sensational piece of trickery teed up Pogba to open the scoring from close range.

And so it continues. Another four goals, another exhilarating Manchester United performance and another feather in the cap of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
He becomes only the third United manager to win his first three games in charge – Sir Matt Busby and Jose Mourinho are the others – but it’s the manner of United’s resurgence under their caretaker boss that has been so hugely impressive.
Once again, Paul Pogba was the catalyst for Solskjaer. United’s record signing scored twice again to make it four goals in two games and weighed with another couple of assists.
