The 17-year-old made it two goals from his last two appearances in Wednesday's penalty shootout win over Rochdale in the Carabao Cup.
Speaking after the game, Solskjaer said: "He's got two great feet, [he took the penalty] with his right. It must be a nightmare for defenders having him one-on-one in the box.
"As you say, he can go both ways, which is, for me, fantastic. You can just see he's got quality and he'll get his share of games but he's young.
"We'll allow him to grow slowly but surely."
