Paul Pogba scored twice as Manchester United gave caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer his third successive win with an impressive victory over Bournemouth.

The France international continued his impressive form since the exit of former boss Jose Mourinho for the Old Trafford side, who thrashed their visitors 4-1.

The other scorers for the Red Devils are Marcus Rashford and substitute Romelu Lukaku, while the visitors denied their hosts a clean sheet thanks to a Nathan Ake header.

United, in sixth, are now only three points behind fifth-placed Arsenal, who were beaten 5-1 at Anfield by Liverpool on Saturday.

Earlier on Sunday, Manchester City returned to winning ways as they defeated Southampton 3-1. The champions had lost in their last two games – against Crystal Palace and Leicester City.

Southampton responded to David Silva’s early opener when Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg took the ball off Oleksandr Zinchenko and fired it into the top corner.

City had luck on their side when Raheem Sterling’s shot deflected off James Ward-Prowse to make it 2-1.

Sergio Aguero’s back-post header completed the scoring before half-time.

Burnley also defeated West Ham 2-0.
