Paul Pogba playing gorgeous passes, Anthony Martial running at players, Marcus Rashford finishing chances. These players weren't bad, they were broken by their manager.

Friendly reminder that Mourinho benched Pogba in his last 4 games. Paul Pogba. Benched.

That pass from Pogba would have helped to find water on mars.

That pass from Pogba and that finish from Rashford are both world class. Devastating. This is about as far removed from those god awful first halves under Mourinho as you’ll get. Enthralling 45 mins of footie #thfc #mufc

It is SO good to watch our team and see that we’ve actually been doing things in training. Our quick counterattacking is causing havoc and they don’t know how to deal with our front three, add Pogba to the mix and it’s an incredible front four.

8 – No player has been involved in more Premier League goals since Ole Gunnar Solskjær became caretaker manager at Manchester United than Paul Pogba (eight – four goals, four assists). Dangerous. #TOTMUN pic.twitter.com/yis6RJMtJj
