(Video) Exquisite intricate play between Pogba and Martial almost leads to Man Utd opening vs Aston Villa

Paul Pogba has been at the centre of Manchester United’s most potent attacking play against Aston Villa.

United lead at half-time through Anthony Martial’s header; the Frenchman was found with a superb cross by Aaron Wan-Bissaka and made no mistake as he nodded past Emiliano Martinez.

And Martial was involved in a superb interchange with fellow countryman Pogba just moments earlier, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men almost created an opening with some exquisite play.

Pogba, operating on the left-hand side of United’s attack, was found by Fred and exchanged passes with Martial before having his cross diverted behind for a corner.

United can go level on points with Premier League leaders Liverpool if they capitalise with victory at Old Trafford.
