Bruno Fernandes, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Marcus Rashford also scored for the Red Devils.

“Of course the last result [a 6-1 defeat to Tottenham] made [today] even bigger,” Solskjaer told a pre-match press conference after the game.

“I thought we showed great resilience and great character to come back. I thought we handled that setback really well and were led by a very inspirational captain.”

Solskjaer added: “I thought he was excellent. He scores a goal, and he leads by example.

“He’s always a very good character around the place, and I’m very happy for him because he’s had a couple of difficult weeks since the last game for us.”
