Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba produced a brilliant individual performance in the Reds' 3-1 win against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday evening.
United had gone a goal down in the game, with Son Heung-Min opening the scoring in the first half, but second-half goals from Fred, Edinson Cavani and Mason Greenwood sealed an important win for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The 28-year-old midfield maestro put in a dominant midfield performance and also finished the game by registering an assist late on, with Pogba playing a pass into the path of Greenwood, who scored to make it 3-1 in the latter stages.
Speaking on Match of the Day, former Spurs midfielder Jermaine Jenas was full of praise for Pogba, following his performance against Jose Mourinho's side.

“Today he was just sensational, I thought, he was on another planet. He ran the game from start to finish. Tottenham couldn’t handle him.
He’s so patient, he waits his time - he lines up Serge Aurier (for the disallowed goal), let me see you open those legs and bosh, straight through there.
"A brilliant bit of play that highlighted the mood Paul Pogba was in. It was just chances created time and time again for players running off him and every time he got on the ball, he sprung into life.”
But the Frenchman's preparation ahead of the game against Spurs was a bit unconventional, with Pogba participating in a late gaming session on Call of Duty: Warzone, the mega-popular Battle-Royale video game, on the night before the big game.
Pogba joined in a gaming session with popular Twitch streamer LukeDutchh on the evening of Saturday, April 10, with the Frenchman joining the stream just before midnight.
The midfielder is a keen gamer, along with his Reds teammates Greenwood, Brandon Williams, Jesse Lingard and others, who can be regularly seen on games like Call of Duty: Warzone, FIFA 21, Fortnite and more.
But he wasn't the only professional footballer to join the party on this particular evening, because Pogba's international teammate and Real Madrid defender Ferland Mendy also joined in on the action, hours after helping Real Madrid to victory over bitter rivals FC Barcelona in El Clasico.
Pogba played Warzone until around 1am, with the French World Cup winner eventually saying: "I'm going to sleep now bro, tomorrow big game man.
And it seems that this late-night gaming session was the ideal pre-match preparation for the midfielder, with Pogba showing his quality against Spurs on the following day, helping his side secure a 3-1 Premier League away win in North London.
