Star returns - Man Utd's strongest possible 4-3-3 XI vs Bournemouth

"It's just a reaction of all the players, everybody enjoying themselves".

"To finish the year like that is lovely", Pogba said. "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 is touch, pass, move, he plays an efficient game and Paul knows he is at his best when he plays that game", added the Norwegian. Pogba, a World Cup victor with France, celebrated that goal by performing a playful shimmy with his arms folded across his stomach - a move that TV cameras revealed he had been practising on the pitch before kickoff. "That's what we need, a team needs to enjoy playing football". "That's how I celebrate my goals".

Man. United: In November, United had a stretch of four games where it scored just four goals.

And in his very first press conference upon his return to the club as caretaker manager, the 45-year old revealed he texted Sir Alex as soon as he got the call.

However, Shaw - who suffered more than most of the United players from Mourinho's public criticism -told Sky Sports it is not the results that have transformed the mentality at Old Trafford but the manner of the wins over Cardiff and Huddersfield.

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




Pogba produced a close-range finish in the fifth minute, added a header in the 33rd, and then - after Marcus Rashford had made it 3-0 and Nathan Ake replied for Bournemouth - provided the assist as substitute Romelu Lukaku made it 4-1 with 18 minutes to go.

Rashford has been the starting striker under Solskjaer in all three games.

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.

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.

Key Opta stats:- Manchester United have recorded three consecutive Premier League victories for the first time since a run of five in April.

Eric Bailly will miss United's next three games after picking up a straight red card in the win over Bournemouth.
