There are few young players in world football as exciting as Marcus Rashford in full flow.

The English striker has dazzled since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's arrival as interim Manchester United boss, scoring two goals in three games.

His performances as a centre-forward suggest he could be the man to lead the line for the Red Devils for years to come.

Rashford's assist for Paul Pogba's opening goal against Bournemouth - which included a delicious flip-flap - was reminiscent of a young Cristiano Ronaldo.

However, it has to be remembered that Rashford is still a very raw talent, one which stagnated under Jose Mourinho's questionable leadership.

As such, Solskjaer has declared that he has a plan to make sure Rashford's renaissance continues and hits new heights.

"I went to see the Young Boys game around a month ago and I met him [Rashford] and Jesse [Lingard] just in the corridor as I was leaving the game. And he was all sighs," said Solskjaer, per Daily Mail.

"He had a few chances in that game and I said, 'Don't worry son, just relax a little bit'.

"When you're young you want to rush finishes off and it will be great to work with a potential top striker on his calmness in front of goal.

"You are excited to be able to work with all of this talent but then going into detail with what I can do best. That was my X-factor, scoring goals. So, if I can help and guide him a little bit, great."

It's that kind of positivity and motivational attitude from Solskjaer that United have been crying out for since Sir Alex Ferguson's departure.

And if the likes of Rashford, Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard are already thriving under the Norwegian, we could see a recovery of form for Alexis Sanchez as well.
