However, the Red Devils remain eight points adrift of the Champions League places at the halfway stage of the season and still have plenty of work to do if they are to challenge for a top-four spot.
Here, Sports Mole looks at how United could line up for their Premier League clash with Bournemouth.
Solskjaer has confirmed that Alexis Sanchez, Romelu Lukaku and Anthony Martial will all undergo late fitness tests ahead of this match, although even if all three are available, the interim boss may look to keep changes to a minimum.
United have played two different systems in Solskjaer's two games at the helm so far, but the likes of Nemanja Matic, Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard are expected to feature regardless of the formation used.
If Lukaku is not thrown straight back into the starting lineup then Marcus Rashford will likely lead the line once again, with Martial pushing for a recall if fit.
