Manchester United fans were massively impressed with a brilliant Paul Pogba display vs Liverpool yesterday evening.
It’s always sweet to beat your biggest rivals in any game. But to be the ones to end their cup run makes it that little bit sweeter.
This Liverpool team were brilliant last year, though without question, United have closed the gap in 2020/21. Last weekend we were gutted to only come away from Anfield with a point. This time around, we’re left celebrating. The best part about it? it was thoroughly deserved.
Winning these games is all about the midfield battle. It certainly helps then, when you’ve got an in-form Paul Pogba playing like a man possessed – on both sides of the ball I may add.
Sure, we’re used to seeing his brilliance in an offensive capacity, but what pleased me most was watching him track back, make tackles and get stuck in. Time and time again the Frenchman was using those long legs to make a last-ditch sliding tackle – including a top challenge that would result in Mason Greenwood sticking the ball in the back of the net.
Suddenly, Pogba’s looking like a leader out there and it’s an absolute privilege to see. It does make you wonder why he hasn’t been playing like this on a regular basis but I guess we just have to be pleased with what we’re seeing right now. And long may that continue…
As you’d imagine, United fans were full of praise for the in-form star who absolutely bossed it vs Liverpool. They took to Twitter in their droves to tell everyone just how good the Frenchman was.
