Manchester United star Paul Pogba was perhaps one of only a few positives following the disappointing draw vs Southampton.
United came out in the second half determined to equalise and they managed to do so thanks to some brilliant play from Pogba.
It was Mason Greenwood who grabbed the goal but after that, Solskjaer’s side fizzled out and couldn’t press on for a winner.
The Red Devils didn’t have much to shout about but Pogba’s brilliant form is the silver lining in an otherwise cloudy day.

Paul Pogba is the first ever player to provide 5+ assists in the opening two games of a Premier League season.
He had only provided six assists in the previous two seasons combined. ???? pic.twitter.com/AMKti9OTc8

The devastating duo would likely see the sensational Frenchman drop into midfield instead of the left-wing position he’s currently in.
Pogba can be brilliant in that role too but it’s obvious he’s better where he is at the moment, in his unorthodox role.
Signing a defensive-midfielder could see the World Cup winner play without having to worry about his defensive duties too much.
Nonetheless, it’s clear Pogba is enjoying his football at the minute despite the uncertainty over his future.
