Manchester United fans were certainly pleased with Paul Pogba following his performance vs Arsenal which saw him grab the opening goal.
Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku also had a hand in the Frenchman’s first goal but it was all down to how he was alive to it that saw him convert.
Pogba has often been criticised for his inconsistency or inability to perform against the top six though his record is undeniable.
The former Juventus man started once more in a three man midfield and impressed, giving his manager Jose Mourinho plenty to think about.
Paul appears to be putting behind himself a poor run of form and should he keep up his consistency, he will star for his nation in the World Cup.

And there are some that think Manchester United would sell Paul Pogba?

Brilliant from Pogba. Sends Xhaka into another time zone. Bellerin did brilliantly to prevent Sanchez from scoring but credit to Pogba for continuing with his run. #mufc

See how Pogba deleted Xhaka like an infected file

3 goals and 2 assists in 5 games for Pogba – all of which he started in a midfield three. Brilliant to see him on form again, play to his strengths and he will deliver. #mufc

Paul Pogba’s certainly got plenty more to prove not because people doubt his ability but simply that he can develop even more.
Fans forget that he’s not in the peak of his career though he’s definitely no longer a ‘young’ player by the definition of the word.
Whenever Pogba plays well, Manchester United normally play well and he can be talismanic in their quest to secure the FA Cup trophy.
