The Frenchman is a midfield mean machine
Paul Pogba issued a statement of intent with his commanding performance against West Ham United on Sunday. Manchester United emerged victorious in a one-sided encounter which was largely due to the brilliance of their midfield man.
His ability to dribble and carry the ball forward was on full display as he left a barrage of claret and blue shirts in his wake. Swiveling across the covering defender, Pogba used his big frame to control the ball and then dinked past the onrushing marker to continue the attack for the Red Devils.
The former Juventus man has come under intense pressure to perform this season after his big money move. Last season’s sixth place finish doesn’t do justice to the talents of the once FIFA Golden Boy.
However, the United number 6 has started this season with a bang and looks certain to carry on his good form into the Champions League as well.
