Paul Pogba of Manchester united has been heavily criticized for his performances this season but surely he did pull some positives against stoke city on Monday night to a 3-0 victory.

The French international was instrumental in the victory, he set up Antonio Valencia for the first goal in the 9th minute with a well-played out footed pass.

He also assisted the second goal by fellow France compatriot Anthony Martial when he picked a pass from Valencia. His ability to detect play, control the game and when to launch long passes was wonderful and that makes me wonder why he does not play like this every time.

The 3rd goal was scored by Romelu Lukaku although the big Belgian has failed to find the net for some times now taken his tally in the premier league to 11 goals, with this victory Manchester united are 12 point behind city rivals Manchester city.
