Picture: Manchester United duo named in Team of the Week after top displays against Middlesbrough

Manchester United Football Club made it five league victories in a row on Saturday, as Jose Mourinho’s men managed to secure late heroics scoring twice in a couple of minutes to turn the game upside down. It felt like the Red Devils of old, and it was a real moment of brilliance inside the Theatre of Dreams.

For their goalscoring performances, both Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba have been included in WhoScored’s Team of the Week, scoring a 9.33 and a 9.12 rating respectively.

Let’s discuss the performance of Pogba first. The midfield maestro absolutely bossed proceedings right from the off, as he was spraying passes all over the show and getting his teammates moving in the right direction.

It was great to see Anthony Martial back in the starting eleven, and my did he deliver. The youngster was on his game from minute one as he began to show his pace, trickery and ability on the ball. He more than deserved his goal, thanks to a brilliant knockdown header from Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

As you can see from the graphic below, there are some huge names included alongside the two reds, including Alex Iwobi, Harry Kane and Leighton Baines.
