He was also pleased with how the Reds managed the game after racking up a comfortable lead, and there were a number of individuals earning his praise, including Victor Lindelof, Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford.
Scroll down to read what Solskjaer had to say to Sky Sports, as well as to reporters in his press conference.
WE MANAGED THE GAME WELL
“In the first half, you go out and attack the game with high tempo, high energy and winning the ball back, but the response to Bournemouth’s goal [in first-half injury time] was great. I thought the second half was excellent. We managed the game so much better than we did against Huddersfield for example.”
POGBA COULDN’T HAVE DONE MUCH MORE
“That is a top, top performance from a midfielder because it was all round. His work rate, he was dangerous in the box, he won headers, he won tackles and there was no showboating. It was touch, pass and move. He played an efficient game. And Paul knows he is at his best when he plays that game. There was one flick maybe that he missed half way through the second half which he could have maybe done better, but there is not much more he could have done. We want to see the best out of all the players, we want to see them enjoy themselves and express themselves, but within the framework and how we want the team to play. All of them have really performed up to their top standards.”
