Manchester United produced a blistering first-half display once again at Old Trafford as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side ran riot in the first 45 minutes. It took the home side just five minutes to find the net as Rashford went on a wonderful run down the byline as he supplied Pogba with a golden opportunity, and the Frenchman bundled the ball into an empty net to gift Manchester United an early lead.

As the home side continued to press to more goals, the Old Trafford faithful were excited with how their team were playing as this rejuvenated Manchester United side under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer were producing some scintillating stuff moving forward in attack. On the half-hour mark, United found a second goal as Ander Herrera produced a majestic cross into the penalty area as Paul Pogba leaped high in the air to meet what was a perfectly timed ball by the Spaniard to smash the ball into the roof of the Bournemouth goal.

As United continued to press, they were rewarded with a third goal as Marcus Rashford made a dashing run into the Bournemouth box to fire home Anthony Martial’s driven ball across the penalty area. In first-half stoppage time, the away side managed to salvage a goal which came completely against the run of play as Nathan Ake fired home as he met David Brooks’ cross.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be more than satisfied with his sides performance in the first 45 minutes, but a slight cause for concern as his side concede from another cross into the box.
