    I think I must have watched a different Utd game to some people. Pogba didnt set up any chances, got lucky with a lot of deflections which retained possession when wondering forward, miscontrolled the ball from the 1st minutes and had 2 goal opportunities which he spooned both well wide. So why was this considered such a world class dominating performance? Its much like his career so far. For some reason he gets labelled one of the best midfielders in the world without offering much of anything in terms of goals, assists or defensive cover over the past 3 years.
