Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made it four wins out of four as caretaker manager of Manchester United thanks to second-half strikes from Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford. Lukaku netted just 38 seconds after coming on as a 63rd-minute substitute for his second goal in as many matches under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The striker converted the rebound of a wicked Rashford free-kick, before the England man produced a composed finish to double the Reds' lead.
