Fans Thought Paul Pogba Ran The Show Last Night With Outrageous Skills

Fans and even his fellow pro footballers are saying Paul Pogba is back to his very best after his incredible show of skill and passing against Sheffield United.

Dean Henderson's early howler against his former club put United 1-0 behind, but a masterful performance from Pogba, Bruno Fernandes and a Marcus Rashford double helped the Old Trafford side to a 3-2 victory.

"If you actually watch football you'll know Pogba slaps in them balls on a regular... when you talk about vision and technique you have to mention him," said Everton's Yannick Bolasie, adding the hashtag SatNav to recognise Pogba's pinpoint passing skills.

"Pogba has to be given our December player of the month," said a Man United fan on twitter. "He's been consistently top class all month."

Pogba's wonderfully looped pass over the top of the Sheffield United defence, right into the path of Anthony Martial's run, helped give his fellow French international his first Premier League goal of the season. It was a stunning assist.

However it was Pogba's all-round game, his link-up play with Bruno Fernandes and his work rate that all shone.

The French World Cup-winning midfielder made eight ball recoveries, plus two tackles and two interceptions across the 90 minutes to add to his attacking output.

But the 27-year-old's real moment of magic was when he unleashed his inner Zinedine Zidane and did a roulette that sent on-loan Chelsea player Ethan Ampadu hurtling in the wrong direction. His subsequent pass set the move in motion for United's third goal of the game.

It was a dazzling moment of skill that shows what Pogba is capable of when fully fit and at his best.

Fans described it as a 10/10 performance. While Michael Owen suggested post-match that keeping Pogba and Fernandes on the pitch together could see Man United mount a serious league title bid.

Pogba's club currently sit five points behind leaders Liverpool with a game in hand after Thursday's victory.

Fans will be eager to see if Pogba can maintain this level of performance and lead United on a title charge in a season where so many of the main contenders are dropping points.
