The French World Cup winner was at his scintillating best against the Italian side.
He played a pivotal role in the majority of United's build up play and even found the back of the net with a rare header.
Despite a rocky start to the semi-final first leg, it turned out to be fairly straightforward affair at Old Trafford as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side dominated in large spells.
And it was that man Pogba who gave arguably the performance of the match. Just check out his indivudal highlights below.

To make Pogba's performance even more impressive, the 28-year-old didn't eat or drink anything until full-time.
The Frenchman has explained in the past how he suffers no ill-effects of fasting during Ramadan when it comes to his efforts on the pitch.
"I've been doing it (Ramadan) for years." he told Manchester United's official website.
"I have a professional nutritionist as well here, who helps me with what I have to eat and also when I train, he gives me some stuff, some protein, so I don't lose too much muscle and it's okay.
"I'm lucky. It's not that hot, you know, so I can deal with it. It's not that hard, you know. It's okay and it's for a good cause so it's good."
Paul Pogba was fasting for Ramadan last night. At FT, he quickly ate, then reappeared for media interviews, sipping an energy drink. All this with a massive smile. I asked how he manages fasting and playing. He looked up, pointed and said "Allah helps us!" :clap::grin:@ManUtd @paulpogba

Pogba has also spoken about his muslim faith on numerous occasions and how it has made him into a better person.
When asked what being a muslim meant to him back in 2019, he told The Times: "It's everything. That's what makes me thankful for everything.
"It made me change, realise things in life. I guess, maybe, it makes me more peaceful inside. It was a good change in my life because I wasn't born a Muslim, even if my mum was. I just grew up like that, respect for everyone.
"Islam is not the image that everyone sees - terrorism... What we hear in the media is really something else. (Islam is) something beautiful.
"You get to know it. Anybody can find that he feels connected with Islam."
