Compilation Shows Paul Pogba Only Scores Bangers This Season
Paul Pogba came up with the goods for Manchester United on Wednesday night with a brilliant winner against Fulham, and one compilation video shows it's not the first time this season.
United were made to work hard on Wednesday by Scott Parker's side, with the west Londoners taking an early lead through Ademola Lookman.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side got level through Edinson Cavani after 21 minutes but from there the Cottagers made things difficult for their visitors, especially in the second half.
Unfortunately for Fulham they were undone with a goal from the top drawer from Pogba. The Frenchman curled the ball home from outside the area on 65th minute, with a wonderful strike, that proved to be the winner.
It wasn't the first time the former Juventus midfielder has come up with the goods this season and one compilation shows all four of his goals so far have been beauties.

After the match Solskjaer praised the midfielder, saying, "Paul's enjoying his football, he's mentally very happy, he's physically in very good shape and we know all about his talent.
"I scored a couple of decent left-foot goals in my day but not one that good, not one from 25 yards into the top corner. It was a great goal.

"We've always said Paul Pogba can do everything, he can play wide, in central midfield, create chances and score goals. He's really come on. The key was getting him match fit. Today he was in midfield and he was so committed and got tackles in as well as his goal."
The former Juventus player had taken United top of the Premier League just a week previous, with his winner against Burnley, before being involved in the side's 0-0 draw with Liverpool on the weekend.
On Wednesday his goal took them back top after local rivals Manchester City had momentarily gone above them earlier in the evening, after their controversial win over Aston Villa.
Earlier in the season the 27-year-old looked certain to leave Old Trafford in the near future when his agent, Mino Raiola, said the midfielder's time at the club was 'over.'
That was on the eve of United's game against RB Leipzig in the Champions League, which led to the English side getting knocked out of the competition.
Since then though Pogba has fought his way back into the team and has shown the kind of form that's often been missing from his second spell in Manchester.
