“If he keeps performing the way he did today, keeps scoring goals whether it’s on his left side or on his right side, it’s going to be tough for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to turn round and say: ‘You’re not playing, I’m playing somebody else.’
“It was a huge statement from him today, as it was from United’s attacking force, everybody contributing, everybody’s movement, shots at goal, goals, you name it. Going forward it was good to watch.
Asked if United still need to sign Sancho, Solskjaer added: “You always need good competition and that’s exactly what will happen [if Sancho signs]. It’s not good competition, it’s fantastic competition.
“Right now, the front three are pretty sensational and right now look as though they’re unstoppable.
“If Sancho coming in, which we expect him to do, takes it up another notch then my goodness, teams better batten down the hatches when they play United.”
Discussing Greenwood’s performance against the Cherries, Solskjaer said post-match: “He is a fantastic goalscorer. The moments he chose the goal, they were very important moments for us.
“The second one, you know he has a left foot to come inside, but I think defenders will have to think about the right foot as well because he’s shown he can score with his right.
