For the first time in his career, Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has scored in consecutive Premier League appearances.
The 24-year-old struck from distance in the final stages of his side’s 2017-18 Premier League opener against West Ham as the Red Devils cruised to a 4-0 victory at Old Trafford.
Pogba scored a first-half goal in United’s final league fixture in the 2016-17 season in which Jose Mourinho’s beat Crystal Palace 2-0 at Old Trafford.
Nemanja Matic, who was involved in the build-up to Pogba’s effort against the Hammers, was signed by Mourinho to allow Pogba to play in a more advanced midfield role without defensive restrictions.
The former Chelsea midfielder played a major part in United’s thrashing of the West Ham and was subsequently named Man of the Match.
