Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba put in a fine performance against Southampton and played a massive role in helping Mason Greenwood score United’s equaliser against the Saints.

Pogba was phenomenal against Leeds United last week, and he followed that with another top performance against Southampton, unfortunately Manchester United couldn’t get the win despite the brilliance of the Frenchman.

Former Chelsea midfielder Karen Carney was thrilled with the performance of Pogba and admitted that this is the Pogba we love.

“At the end of the day, footballers are all actors and actresses and they are coming into an arena to perform,” she told BBC Radio 5 Live.

“That is what Paul Pogba is, he has got the tricks, the flicks, the passes. The way he looks, he has got an aura, a swagger about him.

“He will be loving this, every player wants to play in front a big crowd and he laps that up. He was a class above everybody else today both in and out of possession.”
