There was no shortage of superb performances in the Manchester United squad as they put Bournemouth to the sword on Sunday night.

Following on from victories against Cardiff City and Huddersfield Town, the Red Devils secured themselves a third consecutive win and with another four goals to show for it.

Paul Pogba took most of the applause on the evening, scoring a first-half brace and deservedly collecting the Man of the Match award.

However, the display of Marcus Rashford was also one to remember and the Englishman set the tone after just five minutes when he provided an incredible assist for Pogba.

Rashford would later secure his own place on the score-sheet before half-time and interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had plenty of compliments for his academy graduate after the match.

Praise for Rashford vs Bournemouth

"Marcus has been different class since I came," Solskjaer informed Sky Sports. "He's scored two now in three. His work-rate is unbelievable.

"He closes down, chases, runs in behind, and the skill for the first goal for Paul… the first thing, he holds the ball up, he hasn't got the right to get past them.

"He's got all the chances in the world, the potential of being a top, top, top striker."

Pogba's comment to Rashford

High praise indeed and plenty more compliments were rolling in for Rashford on Instagram, after the forward posted two photographs of the victory.

Footballing figures like Ian Wright, Diogo Dalot, James Maddison and even the England national team all dropped their kind words in the comment section.

However, it was the words of Pogba that prevailed, with the French midfielder garnering over 3,000 'likes' after sending a classy comment to his teammate.

Check out his verdict down below:

Stay classy, Paul.

Pogba wasn't the only one left dreaming about Rashford either, with many United fans wondering just how good he could become under Solskjaer or any future manager at the club.

It's easy to forget that Rashford is still only 21 years old and the assist against Bournemouth was a spectacular reminder of his raw ability. 

No wonder Pogba left the need to praise him on Instagram and to his credit, he repeatedly gestured to the Old Trafford crowd that Rashford deserved the credit for the opening goal.

And while it still needed Pogba to provide the finish touch, it was that little bit of magic that set United on course for another convincing victory since Jose Mourinho's sacking. 

It hasn't been a vintage season from Rashford by any means and the numbers will need to improve but the latest signs are incredibly promising.

Only time will tell whether Rashford will live up to the dreams of United fans, and Pogba.
