Manchester United produced an unbelievable second-half comeback against rivals Manchester City on Saturday to ruin a potential title party, eventually winning 3-2 at the Etihad Stadium.
Finding themselves 2-0 down at half-time, all looked lost against Pep Guardiola’s outfit, but United finally turned up after the interval and, inspired by Paul Pogba, fought their way back into the match.
The midfielder scored twice in two minutes before Chris Smalling netted the winner, sending the away section into raptures and making City’s week go from bad to worse after being thrashed by Liverpool.
Pogba has been criticised in recent months for poor performances but he turned up in this big match and supporters have hailed his impact, believing this is the true player that the club paid so much money for.
Can he now produce this level of performance on a regular basis, week-to-week?
Fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his performance…
It really is Paul Pogba FC. #MUFC

Huge fan of Pogba and I think he has been very good since signing and he has put in probably better performances but for me that was his first genuine £90m performance. He took control, didn’t hide, showed leadership, final product and fought for everything @paulpogba #mufc pic.twitter.com/xSQsi510Wc

Hope we never see the smiling, nice guy, version of Paul Pogba on a pitch again. Give us this ready for war, menacing, tad bit erratic, physical, hard to live with, pumped up @paulpogba every game. #PogBang #Unstoppable #mufc
