Manchester United fans were certainly pleased with Paul Pogba‘s performance vs Leicester City in the first match of the Premier League season.
Jose Mourinho‘s men got things going at Old Trafford as they searched for three vital points to get their campaign off on the right foot.
Pogba returned from his exploits with France at the World Cup as recently as Monday but was deemed fit enough to start the match.
It’s fair to say that decision paid off for Mourinho as it was the midfielder who scored United’s first goal of the game and season.
After putting in inspiring displays for France in their World Cup victory, supporters were happy to seem him recreate that for the club too.

Don't understand how people still don't rate Paul Pogba. He is a big game player. He is a leader. He is a world cup champion.

Although Paul is now a World Cup winner he still has plenty to prove on club level as people will look to him to lead the Red Devils to glory too.
The former Juventus star’s talent is not in doubt but simply his ability to show that on club level regularly for supporters to enjoy.
Hopefully Pogba can keep up his good early start for the rest of the season as he struggled with consistency during the last campaign.
