Manchester United’s stand-in captain Paul Pogba showed again why José Mourinho paid £88m for him after a Man of the Match performance against BSC Young Boys in their opening round Champions League match on Wednesday.
The Frenchman scored two goals in the first half, one from the penalty spot, and provided an assist for Anthony Martial in the 66th minute as United ran away with a comfortable 3-0 victory.
United fans are encouraged by their team’s recent run of form with their win on Wednesday night backed up by consecutive Premier League wins over Burnley and Watford.
Pogba has been the team’s regular captain this season in the matches that Antonio Valencia, who is the club-captain, didn’t feature. The 25-year-old has four goals in his last six games and the fans are also hoping the World Cup winner can continue that form.
United host Wolves on Saturday in what could be a tricky encounter for the Red Devils.
Here are some of the Twitter reactions by United fans…

People get at @paulpogba when he doesn’t decide games so when he does we need to put respect on his name. Two goals and one assist in a 3-0 away win. 👏🏿 Big performance.
