Manchester United continued their winning streak by beating West Ham 2-0 at the London Stadium on Monday. Jose Mourinho’s side scored twice, courtesy of goals from Juan Mata and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Summer signing Paul Pogba also came very close to scoring on many occasions, albeit unsuccessfully. In a moment of magic, however, the young sensation displayed skills that drew comparisons with his idol and French compatriot, Zinedine Zidane.
The 63rd minute saw Pogba receive a short pass in an awkward position with no United player nearby to link up with and being closely marked by two West Ham players. Instead of putting the ball out of play, Pogba lured in Antonio towards him and as soon as Kouyate followed, the Frenchman pulled off a beautiful turn and ran away swiftly, leaving his markers just looking helplessly.
