Pogba opened the match with a goal for the Reds from the penalty spot following Daniel Amartey handball just after three minutes.
Boss Jose Mourinho showered Pogba’s performance with praises afterward:
“Paul was fantastic – his contribution was amazing,” he said via club website.
“Tremendous. Of course, he exceeds the expectations and exceeds what we agreed with him because we thought a maximum of one hour. I think he felt that the team needed him a lot.“
“We knew it was going to be difficult. I didn’t have any pre-season. I came back on Monday. It was difficult for the legs, but we played very well. We just want to go up and up, that’s it.”
