Manchester United fans were pleased with Paul Pogba’s performance against Sunderland at Old Trafford on Boxing Day.
He has been heavily criticised since his summer move from Juventus but has continued to find his feet with his impressive displays under Jose Mourinho.
The Frenchman has completed the most through balls in the Premier League this season and has completely orchestrated the play from the midfield.
Here’s what fans on social media had to say about his performance.

Jose Mourinho struggled to find his best XI at the start of the campaign, but moving forward, it’s clear that Micheal Carrick, Ander Herrera and Pogba have what it takes to take the side forward and win games.
At 22, Pogba has plenty of time to develop and become a top player at Old Trafford, but the fact that he’s already recognised as a world-class threat, highlights just how important he can go on to be at the club.
He’s been one of our most important players this season, and just because he hasn’t found the back of the net or found the headlines, it doesn’t mean he hasn’t completely dominated his midfield matchups.
