    GOOD MORNING, RED DEVILS FANS

    Manchester United gave their Champions League dream another huge boost as they thrashed Bournemouth 5-2 at Old Trafford.

    Mason Greenwood led the way with a brilliant brace as further goals from Bruno Fernandes, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford wrapped up the win.

    Meanwhile, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer agrees with Gary Neville's assessment that Man Utd still need reinforcements if they are to challenge the top two.

    He said: “Gary is right in a lot of things he says and of course we cannot think we’re there.

    “If you look at the table, we’re nowhere near where we should be. Consistency has to be improved and we still have to improve on many aspects of the game.

    “I don’t know how many points we’re behind the top two, but Gary’s right – there’s definitely not going to be any complacency and thinking, ‘We’ve cracked it’ because we’ve got so much to do.

    “It’s an enjoyable journey. We can see improvements but, yes, we need to make one or two – or more – very good decisions. It’s going to be an important summer, definitely.”

    Finally, Odion Ighalo admits his time at Man Utd will be solely judged by how many goals he scores.

    The striker, on loan from Shanghai Shenhua until January, said: “With strikers, we are being judged on goals.

    “Sometimes, when you don’t score goals, you’re sad. As long as the team wins, that’s the most important thing but, as a striker, I would like to score in every game.

    “That is what you are being judged on – goals, goals, goals. It’s the measure of a striker – how many goals you have scored. It is what people want to know about. 

    “That’s why we’re always eager to score goals and why, every time I’m on the pitch, I give my best to try to make sure I can create chances and score goals. 

    “But if I don’t score then, as long as we win the game, and my team-mates score, it’s okay for me.”

  • MATTER OF FAC

    Man Utd are plotting a transfer swoop for Penarol’s Uruguayan starlet Facundo Pellistri – coached by ex-Red Devils striker Diego Forlan.

    The Athletic claims Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could launch a potential swoop once the window re-opens.

    Penarol know they will struggle to hold on to Pellistri, especially as the lightning quick attacker has a £10million release clause inserted into his contract.

    But United will face strong competition for his signature as both neighbours Man City and Real Madrid are keen.

  • YOU ARE MY SAN SHINE

    Journalist Bolarinwa Olajide claims Jadon Sancho has struck personal terms with Man Utd.

    He claims a contract agreement is in place with the winger.

    But United are yet to strike a fee with his club Borussia Dortmund.

  • OD ONE OUT

    Odion Ighalo admits his time at Man Utd will be solely judged by how many goals he scores.

    The striker, on loan from Shanghai Shenhua until January, said: “With strikers, we are being judged on goals.

  • ON YOUR ED

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer agrees with Gary Neville's assessment that Man Utd needs reinforcements if they are to challenge the top two.

  • SNAP VERDICT

    SunSport's Dave Courtnadge runs the rule over Man Utd's 5-2 triumph over Bournemouth – and despite the big margin of victory, the defence has nowhere to hide…

    “It’s starting to look like Glory, Glory Man Utd once again for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s rampant Reds – well, up front at least.

    “United fans watching the thrashing of Bournemouth in newly-reopened pubs will have had plenty to celebrate after brilliant strikes by Anthony Martial and Bruno Fernandes.

    “And the left-foot/right-foot double by rising star Mason Greenwood will have had the biggest tee-totaller grabbing the Champers.

    “But while the attacking football was worth raising a glass to, the defending may well have Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reaching for the bottle.

    “Criticism of United’s back line may seem harsh when you look at their recent record.

    “An impressive 12 clean sheets in 16 games hardly paints a picture of a team leaking goals.

    “But as in the Spurs game straight after the return, the manner in which Bournemouth took a lead here shows a softness at the heart of the defence that justifiably has Roy Keane seething.”

  • FULL-TIME!

    MAN UTD 5 B'MOUTH 2

  • MAN UTD 5 B'MOUTH 2

    61' Goal given! Bournemouth felt Matic was interfering and in an offside position… but there's to be no miserly action from those at Stockley Park.

    This could be a rout now…

  • MAN UTD 5 B'MOUTH 2

    59' What did I tell you?!

    It's a sumptuous free-kick by Fernandes, who bends it past Aaron Ramsdale with plenty of whip!

    Bournemouth want an offside here though…

  • MAN UTD 4 B'MOUTH 2

    55' Greenwood is special!

    He wanders around the edge of the box, ball glued to his right foot.

    Which is his weaker…? Who cares! He elects to use his right this time around and spanks it past Ramsdale!

    What a second-half here.

  • MAN UTD 3 B'MOUTH 1

    47' It's a nightmare start to the half for United!

    The danger started with poor play by Maguire to give the ball away to Solanke.

    De Gea was subsequently called into action, before Danjuma struck the post.

    The ball then eventually struck Bailly on the arm… but it might have been outside the area!

    It's gone to VAR…

  • MART-VELLOUS

    What a strike from Anthony Martial!

  • HALF TIME: MAN UTD 3 B'MOUTH 1

    Bournemouth looked to hustle United early on, and managed to take the lead when Junior Stanislas embarrassed Harry Maguire before slotting past David De Gea.

    United have hit back impressively, however, with goals from Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial giving them a comfortable lead at the break.

  • MAN UTD 3 B'MOUTH 1

    45+2' Fernandes feeds Martial the ball wide on the left.

    The Frenchman does the rest exquisitely, trotting inside before unleashing a glorious curling effort into the top corner of Ramsdale's net.

    Uphill task for the Cherries now.

  • MAN UTD 2 B'MOUTH 1

    35' The England star calmly slots it past Aaron Ramsdale… just!

    That's his first goal since the restart and United will be feeling a lot more comfortable now!

  • MAN UTD 1 B'MOUTH 1

    33' Mike Dean points to the spot!

    Martial headed a cross back across goal, which bounced onto Adam Smith's arm!

    Rashford to take…
