''Marcus Rashford Has Been Different Class'' - Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Heaps Praise On Manchester United Striker

Manchester United Interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was raving about Marcus Rashford's performance as the Red Devils thrashed Bournemouth 4-1 at Old Trafford today.

The Norwegian is a long-time fan of Rashford and frequently sung the player's praises before he replaced sacked United boss Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford.

In fact, Rashford has provided six assists in 17 Premier League appearances this season; as many as in his previous two seasons combined (77 appearances).

His assist for the first United goal today - when he split the Cherries defence wide open with a sublime range of skills - thrilled the Stretford End.

Solskjaer told Sky Sports: "In the first half we attacked the game with a high tempo and high energy but the response to their goal was great. We managed the game much better than against Huddersfield.

"We are still looking for a clean sheet - you can’t switch off for one second in this league.

"It’s a very very good performance, the crowd was enjoying it but now Newcastle, the next one, is a different kind of test.

"Marcus Rashford has been different class since I came. His work rate is unbelievable., He chases, closes down, runs in behind and his skill for Paul’s goal was great. He’s got all the chances in the world and the potential to be a top striker."

It wasn't a perfect day for United - they had defender Eric Bailly sent off for a reckless challenge later in the second half.

"Eric Bailly knows it’s a rash challenge [for his red card] but the boys are excited and want to win the ball back and sometimes you mistime challenges."
