Manchester United grabbed another three points yesterday evening, and what a richly deserved win it was. Jose Mourinho’s team are beginning to look like an outfit capable of winning trophies, and right at the heart of it, there is one man in particular who is catching the eye.
Paul Pogba cost Manchester United a world record transfer fee to bring back to Old Trafford, and although he started slowly, the 23-year-old is beginning to adapt to life at the Theatre of Dreams.
Last night, Pogba finished the game with a goal and an assist to his name, as well as a Man of the Match performance to boot. Throughout the ninety minutes, the Frenchman absolutely ran the show, and I’d definitely say that was his best game in a red shirt so far.
The best, and most important praise for players comes from those within the game, and Rio Ferdinand took to Twitter almost immediately to talk about just how good his former teammate was.

Brilliance from @paulpogba 💪🏽

Rio knows exactly what he is talking about, and this simple message to Pogba will boost his confidence even further. It is now solely up to our main man to keep these performances coming, and help his team start moving up the table.
