Manchester United fans were not in short of positive comments for Paul Pogba‘s performance vs Newcastle United during Saturday night’s kick-off at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils were in desperately in need of a win but found themselves conceding the first goal with the away team playing with fiery intensity.
Pogba’s return from injury was met with huge applause from United fans who couldn’t wait to see their star Frenchman control games once more.
The former Juventus man did not disappoint, assisting Anthony Martial with a beautiful chipped cross to help his team equalise before half-time and even managed to score after the break.
Instrumental in much of the club’s good play, fans will hope Paul never gets injured again this season in order to keep up their title challenge.

Absolutely brilliant by Pogba. How many central midfielders are capable of that? Stunning cross – finish by Martial

With Tottenham losing to Arsenal earlier in the day, Manchester United were hoping to get all three points in the bag in order to run away from the rest of the chasing pack.
At half-time, thanks to a Chris Smalling header, the Red Devils lead 2-1, completing the comeback after conceding disappointingly early in the game.
With United set to enter a busy fixture period, they’ll need to keep Pogba as fit as possible if they wish to have any chance of challenging for as much silverware as possible.
The academy product proved just what he brings to this Jose Mourinho team by adding serious flair and attacking impetus from midfield.
Paul’s performance will make sure he’s never underrated by his own fans ever again and rival fans will surely be left feeling uneasy.
