Paul Pogba enjoyed a match-winning display against Chelsea in the FA Cup on Monday evening.
The France international laid on the first goal, sending in a peach of a cross to Ander Herrera, who headed home, before scoring the second himself, sending a diving header past Kepa Arrizabalaga.
Pogba’s form under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been exemplary – in the Premier League he has scored eight goals and laid on five assists since the sacking of Jose Mourinho.
And against Chelsea, yet again, he was at his irrepressible best in midfield, dominating proceedings with his flair and precision dribbling.
Per WhoScored, Pogba, who briefly became the world’s most expensive player when he moved to Old Trafford for £89million in 2016, had 58 touches of the ball, made two dribbles, won three tackles, and scored with his only attempt on goal.
He was handed the Man of the Match award by the BBC during their broadcast of the game and several United fans on Twitter lavished praise on the 25-year-old’s performance. Take a look at some of the best reaction below.
I said it 4 weeks ago, I said it 3 weeks ago, I said it 2 weeks ago, I said it a week ago as well and I am saying it again.

Was worried about this game today. Chelsea often our bogey team. The boys bounced back in the best possible way after disappointment against PSG.
Pogba – best player in england currently.
