Giggs, who watched the victory as part of the MUTV punditry team, spotted three players returning to their best form under Solskjaer.
“Ole’s first home game and the positivity that came from Cardiff game the performance and result, everyone, was looking forward to it,” Giggs said.
“The big players are turning up, Pogba with the goals, David [De Gea] with a great save and Marcus [Rashford] getting better and better each game.”
“There’s a real positivity around the game and we need that to carry on to the Bournemouth game.”

The Red Devils are now sixth in the Premier League table with eight points behind the Champions League position.
But Giggs believes it’s still possible for his former side to secure the Champions League spot for next season.
“Seen in a short space of time what has happened at Liverpool and City and the good thing is there are still plenty of games to go,” he added.
“But we can’t get ahead of ourselves it’s a tough league today wasn’t easy at times, you can see what happens in football we used to do it 10, 12 points behind.”
“As long as it’s mathematically possible and beat your rivals then yeah, they need to have a good run of the game to get the confidence up going into that Spurs game.”
The Wales head coach has also explained how Solskjaer learnt his tactics while playing under Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford.

“He was always quietly confident believed in his own ability and even though people think he’s a nice guy but he’s got an edge to him,” he said.
“He’s gradually got more experience and when he had that injury and time out he used to take notes of things Sir Alex would do so I believed he would do a good job and go into coaching.”
“You just need a little bit of edge to be a manager and he has that.”
