Manchester United manager interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer claims club-record signing Paul Pogba is proving he can eradicate showboating from his game and showcase his sublime talents.
Pogba, 25, scored two and made one in the 4-1 win at Old Trafford as Solskjaer continued his perfect start since taking over from Jose Mourinho.
The eccentric midfielder also became the first United player to score at least twice in consecutive Premier League appearances since Wayne Rooney in December 2012.
And his new manager believes he’s proving he can produce substance over style in the top-flight of English football.

“That is a top, top performance from a midfielder,” Solskjaer said after the win, as per ESPN.
“It’s work rate, headers, winning tackles, no showboating and it’s touch, pass, move and he’s at his best when he plays that game.
“There was maybe one flick he could have done better with, but not a lot else he could have done.”
United have scored 12 goals in three games since Solskjaer took over, while the 45-year-old followed only Sir Matt Busby and Mourinho in winning his first three league games as manager.
