Manchester United fans were delighted with Paul Pogba’s impressive Premier League debut against Southampton.
The Frenchman made his Premier League debut on Friday afternoon after his one match suspension left him watching the 3-1 Bournemouth victory from home.
He finalised his £89 million move to Old Trafford and has made an impression on fans after showcasing plenty of talent in his first game back.
Here’s what fans on social media had to say.
Pogba is a monster of a player. He shrugs off players and moves with such elegance, and also has quick thinking. What a complete midfielder.

Pogba is something else in that midfield. Not seen energy like that for time!

Pogba shielding the ball nicely, always looking to deliver a killer pass, calm under pressure and with an eye for a goal. Not a bad start.

There was plenty of pressure on his shoulders, but he has gone the perfect way about proving his critics wrong with an extremely solid performance in midfield.
He left after growing frustrated with Sir Alex Ferguson due to a lack of first-team opportunities, but will play a vital role at the heart of Mourinho’s exciting new United side this season.
His arrival will help take the club to the next level and Mourinho looks like he finally has everything place to take Man United back to their former glory days.
