Paul Pogba continued his excellent form as Manchester United cruised to a 3-0 victory over Aston Villa.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men made it four consecutive league victories in a row without breaking a sweat against the relegation-threatened home side.
Bruno Fernandes cooly gave the Reds the lead from the spot in the 27th minute after a contentious penalty decision that has divided many on social media.
Mason Greenwood’s thunderous right-footed strike on the stroke of half-time all but secured another three points for the Reds as they made it 17 unbeaten in all competitions.
Pogba got in the on act with a precise finish from outside the box in the second-half to score his first goal since returning from his recurring ankle problems.
The Frenchman’s classy effort rounded off an almost flawless evening in midfield, as he dictated play with his calmness and quality in possession.
Pogba’s long-range passing was a pleasure to watch, but what is just as impressive is how simple he is keeping it with United looking more calculated in attacking transition.
Solskjaer has found his best United midfield and Pogba emphasised his importance to the team again this evening with a dominant display.
