Paul Pogba's Assist For Ander Herrera's Got Everyone Talking
Paul Pogba continued his brilliant form for Manchester United by setting up Ander Herrera to open the scoring in the FA Cup fifth round tie against Chelsea with a moment of magic.
Not that long ago Paul Pogba looked like a £90 million waste of money, someone who was a 'virus' to the dressing room according to Jose Mourinho, he'd lost the captaincy at Manchester United and looked certain to leave Old Trafford sooner rather than later.
But with Mourinho gone the Frenchman looks like one of the best midfielders in the world again and has been involved in more goals since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over the team than anyone else in the top five leagues.
On Monday night the former Juventus player was playing in a familiar position, on the left of central midfield, as United played a diamond formation against Chelsea in the FA Cup.
Around the half hour mark, with the game pretty even but the Blues enjoying the best of the recent spell, Pogba received the ball, fooled defenders with his feet and played the perfect ball for Ander Herrera's late run into the box, the Spaniard headed home for a 1-0 lead.

Brilliant assist from Pogba, that. Everything he's about.- Joe Crann (@YesWeCrann) February 18, 2019
On the stroke of half time the 25 year old added to United's lead when headed home from the penalty spot after the perfect cross from Marcus Rashford.
The fortunes of Pogba have changed so much in just two months, suddenly he's looking every bit the £90 million that the Red Devils paid for him.
