Manchester United won two Premier League games in a row for the first time since August, as the Red Devils saw off Crystal Palace 2-1 at Selhurst Park on Wednesday.
Paul Pogba had a night to remember with a goal and the assist for the match winner. The French international, helped by the adequate foil provided by his fellow midfielders, Michael Carrick and Ander Herrera, ran the show against the Eagles.
Veteran Michael Carrick was the shield protecting the defence, and turned in a tenacious performance as the enforce. Meanwhile, Ander Herrera was buzzing all over the pitch, using his zeal and zest to nip opposition attacks in the bud.
Naturally, the performance had the fans gushing in praise on Twitter. Check out the reaction below!
Pogba, Herrera & Carrick is the best midfield in the history of association football…

Carrick-Herrera-Pogba midfield is 😍
Everything we've always wanted in our midfield since the Scholes-Keano days.

Two huge keys for MUFC: 1) The Rojo-Jones partnership not being a disaster 2) Midfield trio of Carrick/Pogba/Herrera looking great.

Pogba was excellent tonight. Controlled the game. Blends so well with Carrick and Herrera. Real balance to our midfield with those three

Pogba was excellent. Makes such a difference having Carrick & Herrera beside him. Onwards to a tough game at the Hawthorns now.

Carrick, Herrera + Pogba have to play every game. That's what makes us tick. Carrick controls, Herrera hassles and Pogba creates. #mufc

This midfield trio should be patent for our midfield.. Pogba for the Creativity, Herrera for the Energy, and Carrick for the Stability.

(Rightfully) lots and lots of talk about Carrick and, particularly, Paul Pogba; but Ander Herrera was superb yet again this evening. Trio. 🔴
