Manchester United fans were full of praise for Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba after they linked up well to find the closing goal over the game against Blackburn Rovers in the FA Cup fifth round.
Jose Mourinho’s side sat 1-1 at half-time and the Portuguese boss was not looking for the re-match as he subbed on the duo to make an impact at Ewood Park.
Pogba found Ibrahimovic with an incredible pass and the big Swede then found the back of the net as he scored his 24th goal in 37 games across all competitions, and he’s been in brilliant form as 18 have come in his last 20 showings.
Here’s what fans on social media had to say about their performances.

It was a brilliant move from Jose, as United had to find a goal, he played the club’s top goalscorer and playmaker, and deliver they did as they linked up well to find a well-deserved goal.
The pair have been indispensable for United this season and although Mourinho had hoped to rest them against Blackburn, they’ve showcased why their the club’s most influential attacking assets.
