This was a bit special.
Marcus Rashford has all the potential in the world – so is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the man to harness all that ability?
This was Rashford at his elusive and explosive best, embarrassing two Bournemouth defenders before putting it on a plate for Paul Pogba.
Very little seemed on for the 21-year-old as he was ushered towards the corner flag.
But in a flash Rashford was away from Nathan Ake with a step over and a flick.
Diego Rico was his next victim, flip-flapping his way nonchalantly past the despairing Spaniard who was cautious about conceding a penalty.
Rashford then had the wherewithal to get his head up and pick Pogba out in the middle for the Frenchman to open the scoring.
It was a glorious move in keeping with the sexy brand of football played so far during Solskjaer’s temporary stint in charge so far.
We rarely saw this Rashford under Jose Mourinho, but perhaps that’s because he was forced into hiding.
Now the shackles are off and the arrogance is back.
