Manchester United fans were full of praise for Paul Pogba as their side reached the Europa League final with a 1-1 draw against Celta Vigo.
The Frenchman, an unstoppable force against Celta in the first leg, was rested against Arsenal ahead of what was a season defining clash.
And once again he didn’t disappoint, rampaging through the middle and producing an endless stream of sumptuous balls all over the pitch.
Supporters were quick to heap praise on the 24-year-old for what was another powerful performance in the middle.
Pogba has been sensational tonight. Utd's best player by far.

Pogba is absolutely immense. Different class

Pogba is different class. He doesn't need 489937 assists and 838774 goals to prove he's a baller.

You could tell that Celta’s midfield couldn’t quite figure out what to do with Pogba: in La Liga, for example, everything revolves around moving the ball quickly, and the Spanish side can pride themselves on mastering their pressing game in Europe this season. But what to do when you come up against technical prowess accompanied with brute strength?
Celta had no idea. Pogba was a cut above, allowing Celta players to bounce off and bump into him all evening as he once again defied his critics with a crisp and powerful midfield display, turing black shirts for fun as Jose Mourinho‘s men booked their place in the Europa League final.
Supporters will be desperate for something similar in Stockholm in just under two weeks time.
