Rain of goals from Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku and Anthony Martial just within four minutes of play made it four after Bailly gleefully hammered home the first goal before the half-time whistle was sounded. United have now made it two in two without conceding any goal and they occupy the first spot of the Premier league table.
Since the departure of Gylfi Sigurdsson’s in a £45million move to Everton, the Swans have struggled in the Premier League and they have just been merely surviving or maybe hoping for the kind of miracle Leicester City experienced in the penultimate season. Their defeat to United at the Liberty Stadium was the first since the 5th of April but they will be hoping to bounce back soon.
Man United midfielder Paul Pogba failed to give account of himself in the first half of the game, probably due to the yellow card he picked up. However the French midfielder made bare his guile when he was involved in the set up of Bailly’s goal from a corner kick – he also found the back of the net from a Mkhitaryan assist to make it two in two for the season before setting up Anthony Martial’s.
Here’s what fans have been saying about Pogba on social media platform, twitter:
Pogba is such a baller, man. Incorrectly utilised last season, but thriving this year with more freedom. Will prove all his doubters wrong

Pogba already with 2 goals and 2 assists in the league. It looks like he will shine this season now that he has more freedom.

United could have paid £200m to get Matic, what he has brought to Old Trafford would be worth every penny. Pogba is now himself.

Jose Mourinho has won the league in his second season for all but one of the clubs in his managerial career. Albeit it is early to make conclusion, United are looking like favourites for the title. Meanwhile, United midfield marshal Pogba has proved his mettle in the last two games and the fans have been thrown into a frenzy after his performance.
