Manchester United fans couldn’t have been happier with Paul Pogba after his incredible display against Newcastle.
The Frenchman was absolutely instrumental in his side’s superb comeback win against the away side after falling behind 2-0 within the first 10 minutes of the match.
United managed to secure the 3-2 result within the last 20 minutes with supporters taken on a true rollercoaster ride of emotions.
Pogba grabbed the game by the scruff of the neck in the second half to help his side turn things around and everyone took notice.
Jose Mourinho had switched his role from a pretty attacking midfielder to a deep-lying playmaker and it certainly paid dividends.
I hope journalists cover that performance of Paul Pogba, because although he supposedly has a fractured relationship with Mourinho, he came out after half time and grabbed that game by the scruff of the neck today. He was incredible.

Manchester United fans may not want to hear this, but Jose Mourinho playing Paul Pogba at CB in the second half changed the game. Pogba orchestrated the second half and changed the game. Top performance from the Frenchman.

Paul Pogba. I'm sorry but he's my baller. He's so good. Players like this should never be made to change who they are. The more often we attack..the more often Pogba shows his class.
Still a massive Lukaku problem. He shudnt be at RW when we need a goal.

Fans and reporters alike were scratching their heads when Paul Pogba lined up in such a deep-lying role at the start of the second-half. But, just like against City, he spearheaded that comeback from 2-0 down at half-time. Broke from deep and 'killed'. Kudos. #mufc

Proud of everyone but Pogba has given his life on the pitch today.

Mourinho's changes worked excellently, really. Pogba was very effective in the deep midfield role.

Perhaps Mourinho should consider playing Paul in that position more often given how well it worked but it should also be said he succeeded partly due to the improved movement ahead of him as well.
The Red Devils attacked with more vigour and there were certainly plenty more runners providing him with more options to consider.
Pogba could’ve potentially saved his manager’s job with the role he played in the crazy comeback so there can be no doubts over his attitude.
However, plenty of work is still needed for Manchester United to get their season going and somehow meet their targets.
