Pogba appears totally transformed and free to express himself following Jose Mourinho’s departure – he now has four goals and three assists in Solskjaer’s opening three games.
And in his manager’s eyes, his display against Bournemouth was close to perfection.
“We have conversations every day talking about his strengths, what he can improve on, and how I want him to play,” Solskjaer told talkSPORT.
“He wasn’t far off playing the perfect game today.
“It’s not about scoring goals. When you’ve got the skills of Paul, you know that.
“But the way he’s working for the team, his tackling, he plays it simple, just touch-pass, touch-pass.
“There wasn’t anything for show. It’s just great game management.”
Solskjaer has thrown the shackles off United’s talented front-line and another man to benefit is Marcus Rashford.
The England international started through the middle and created Pogba’s opening strike with a dazzling piece of skill, before getting the goal his performance deserved just before half-time.

He was replaced by Romelu Lukaku, who announced his return by rounding off the scoring within moments of coming on, and Solskjaer highlighted the work ethic of both strikers.
“As strikers you always want to score goals and that gives you confidence.
“We know they’re going to score goals, but when you get the work rate of Marcus, then Romelu comes on and drops back to help defensively – then you know you’ve got a team coming.
“We’re building a team spirit here and I have to say – it’s been fantastic.”
On Rashford, Solskjaer added: “I’m delighted for him because he’s coming on and he’ll be a top, top player.
“The way he’s gone about this job, playing up top, the work rate he puts in…He’s got everything.
“I’m really pleased that he’ll get goals. He’s scored two now in three games, but his work rate, all the work he puts in, that’s a big pleasing thing for me – with the whole team, because we should never be outworked by anyone. And he’s the catalyst. I’ll have to slow him down at times.
“And the way he made the first goal as well – hold up play, skills, vision to put it in the right area.”
