Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was thrilled with Marcus Rashfords all-round performance during Manchester Uniteds 4-1 win over Bournemouth on Sunday afternoon and was left in awe of the England internationals stunning assist for Paul Pogbas opener.

Rashford glided past former Chelsea centre-half Nathan Ake and then produced a filthy elastico to leave Diego Rico bamboozled before squaring the ball to Pogba who couldnt miss from close range.

The attacker also got himself on the scoresheet along with Romelu Lukaku, who replaced him with 20 minutes to go, and has made a great start to life under Solskjaer.

His manager singled him out for special praise after the routine win and hailed his work rate as well as his outrageous piece of skill while predicting a bright future for the 21-year-old.

I think Marcus has been different class since I came, Solskjaer told Sky Sports.

His work rate is unbelievable. He chases, closes down, runs in behind and his skill for Pauls goal was great.

The first thing he holds the ball up and has no real right to go past the first one and then the second one.

Hes got all the chances in the world and the potential to be a top, top, top striker.
