‘Sensation’, ‘need more of that’, Man United fans praise midfielder after Spurs win

Pogba MUFC

Manchester United supporters were impressed by the performance of midfielder Paul Pogba during the FA Cup semi-final over Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.

The France international had put in a strong performance in the midweek league triumph over Bournemouth and he followed it up with another excellent showing against Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

United found themselves trailing 1-0 early in the first period but they managed to pull things level with an Alexis Sanchez header which was orchestrated by a brilliant delivery from Pogba.

Following the break, Mourinho’s side were more organised than the opposition and they pressed forward for the winner which eventually came with the efforts of Ander Herrera.


Pogba has been heavily criticised for being inconsistent with his performances but the Frenchman has now built up a good run of form with contributions in three of his previous four appearances.

Playing in a midfield three alongside Ander Herrera and Nemanja Matic, Pogba has found more room to push forward from the left flank and there was a much better understanding between him and Sanchez on Saturday.

Sanchez and Pogba appeared to complicate things by finding themselves in similar positions but the former was allowed to occupy a free role against Spurs which enabled him to find the scoresheet.
