It’s safe to say Manchester United fans were left in awe of Paul Pogba after his magical performance vs Aston Villa.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer set his side up in a diamond formation and it appeared to be the right call as they played well despite heading into the break with just a 1-0 lead.
Pogba played on the left of the diamond and seemed to enjoy having the freedom of that wing with Luke Shaw bombing up ahead of him.
United needed a win if they were to keep up their good form and show everyone their desire to challenge for the title is serious.
Pogba certainly played an instrumental role in the 2-1 victory and deserved the praise he got for helping his side get level on points with table toppers Liverpool.

I love how Pogba didn't let the hate and criticism he got after his agent's comments bother him and he's been consistently World Class in every game since then

Pogba has been consistently amazing for the past month and the media have gone blind all of a sudden

Pogba clearly impressed fans and for good reason so the hope will be he can keep up his current form.
More importantly, if he does maintain a good run of form then supporters will want the club to tie him down to a new deal to end all talk over a possible departure.
Arguably half of the fans who want Pogba out of the club don’t even want him to go because of his talent but because of all the noise surrounding him and the toxicity often associated with him.
Nonetheless, it can all be forgotten about if he continues to give his all for Manchester United as he has done recently.
