Paul Pogba scored a powerful header for his second Manchester United goal this afternoon.
The French midfielder is enjoying a new lease of life under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer – returning to the starting XI following the sacking of Jose Mourinho.
He set up two in the 5-1 win over Cardiff in Solskjaer’s first game and scored two in the 3-1 win over Huddersfield that followed that.
Now Pogba has four goals and two assists in three games after hitting the back of the net twice in the first half of today’s game against Bournemouth at Old Trafford.
The first was courtesy of some brilliant footwork from Marcus Rashford on the right.
And his second was thanks to a superb cross from Ander Herrera, which Pogba headed home emphatically:
DOUBLE DELIGHT FOR POGBA

Since then, Rashford has added a third for United, but Bournemouth did pull a goal back just before half-time courtesy of Nathan Ake’s header.
If United win, they’ll cut the gap to Arsenal in fifth to three points and make it three wins on the bounce going into Wednesday’s clash with Newcastle at St James’ Park.
