Solskjaer delighted to see Man United 'bounce back' with convincing 4-0 win over Norwich

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer praised his Manchester United side after they bounced back with a convincing 4-0 victory over Norwich at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Marcus Rashford scored twice for the hosts to take his tally to 14 Premier League goals for the season, with further goals from Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood seeing Solskjaer’s side keep up the pressure on Chelsea in the hunt for a top-four finish.

The victory saw United respond to their disappointing Carabao Cup semi-final first leg defeat to Manchester City in midweek, and Solskjaer praised his side for their response in thrashing the relegation threatened Canaries.

“Very happy. We started on the front foot,” Solskjaer told BBC Sport.

”When you can walk off, and I am sure the opposition are talking about Man Utd as a very hard working team, that is what I want from my team.

“In any Premier League game you have to take advantage of the pressure and domination you get. Second half was very good.”

Following the clash Solskjaer reserved special praise for two-goal hero Rashford, the England international marking his 200th appearance for the club with a well taken brace to continue his fine form in front of goal.

“Fantastic effort by Marcus getting to 200 games so quickly,” Solskjaer continued.

”He got through most of the game, he is struggling a little bit so we took him off. He kept his cool. Very pleased with Marcus.”

“We reacted today, we can bounce back and we are taking more than two or three steps forward before one back, because behind the scenes we know we are doing good work.”
