Cristiano Ronaldo scored a hat-trick in the five-goal thriller, including his first free-kick goal since July 2020.
But another key talking point from the clash was United skipper Maguire catching Pogba right in the head.
From a corner, Maguire challenged Norwich defender Ben Gibson in the air and ended up up in a very peculiar position as he fell to the turf.
Poor Pogba ended up getting studs in his face and was absolutely seething after being bloodied - giving his captain the death stare as medical staff attended to him.

Although it was accidental, Maguire received criticism for his clumsiness and fans felt it summed up United's poor 2021/122 campaign.
And people have spotted that Maguire performed a very similar action before the game.
As the teams and officials lined up and got ready for the fairplay handshake, the former Leicester City centre-back was seen doing a bizarre stretch.

He moved his body forward and kicked his legs up in the air behind him at separate points.
This isn't the first time Maguire has had an accidental collision with a teammate. Only last month, he inadvertently smashed into Cristiano Ronaldo's teeth with his head from a corner against Atletico Madrid.
Maguire's displays have come under serious scrutiny this season and some fans believe David De Gea was refusing to pass to him at the weekend.
There was one occasion where the Spaniard refrained to pass into his feet and instead kicked the ball straight out of play.
Maguire had also been guilty of some poor defending for Teemu Pukki's equaliser in the game.
He could reportedly be stripped of the captaincy by Erik ten Hag, who is set to take the reins at United in the summer and wants a new central defender.
