It’s fair to say Manchester United fans were satisfied with Paul Pogba’s performance vs Tottenham if not more so as he ran the game at Wembley.
Jose Mourinho’s side were in London challenging for the right to be in the FA Cup final and after a shaky start, came up with the goods.
United were trailing 1-0 in the first half but it wasn’t long after that Alexis Sanchez equalised through a brilliant assist from Pogba.
After the break the Frenchman, as well as the rest of his teammates, grew into the game and began to dominate, controlling it all perfectly.
Much has been made of Paul and his inconsistencies but yesterday’s win should provide him the perfect platform to put a run of good performances together.
Paul Pogba: take a bow. When Manchester United needed him, he turned up and performed. Sensational. Need more of that Pogba on show.

What a win! Wow. Didn’t think we’d get past them, but the boys played outstanding in that second half. Clutch from Pogba, Alexis and Herrera.

Magnificent from Pogba. Absolutely magnificent. And what a header from Sanchez. He needed that. Herrera, Valencia, Smalling, Jones and Lukaku turn round and walk back to their own half. Mourinho chatting to Young. Focus still the key. #mufc

Playing alongside Ander Herrera and Nemanja Matic in a midfield three, Paul Pogba was allowed a little more freedom than usual and he took full advantage of it.
Jose Mourinho ensured the former Juventus man and Sanchez didn’t run into each others space by allowing the latter to roam as much as he likes and it clearly worked.
The Chilean ghosted into Tottenham’s box for the equaliser and it was no real surprise that it was Pogba who found him but fans will be hoping for more of those two linking up.
