Manchester United fans were impressed with Paul Pogba’s display during their side’s 1-0 win over Zorya Luhansk in the Europa League on Thursday night.
The Frenchman built on his outstanding performance against Leicester City with another imperious showing in midfield against the Ukrainian side, hallmarked by practically faultless control and indomitable strength.
Supporters were quick to heap praise on the 23-year-old throughout the game.
Pogba is playing some unbelievable balls 🔥🔥

Only positive is Pogba's playing very well. Martial for Lingard and Carrick for Fellaini needed asap.

The most incredible thing about Pogba’s performance was that, ironically, it was by no means his best, and yet still miles ahead of any other midfielder on the pitch. This is a man who simply oozes class and control, producing a standard of performance that some players at this level, even when at their pomp, fail to match.
Pogba power on the ball, physical presence and superb assurance in possession meant that Zorya’s midfield spent most of the night chasing his heels, whilst the United side aligned themselves around the Frenchman, acting as mere compliments to what was another Pogba-sponsored win.
United fans will be expecting even more from Pogba in the future, however; they know that the Frenchman can elevate himself to even greater standards during his time at Old Trafford.
