The ball bundled away to the far post was Fred showed tenacity to barge off Pierre Kalulu, before winning the ball back after an audacious back-heel attempt.

Pogba eventually collected the ball just a couple of yards out, dummying Franck Kessie and United target Gianluigi Donnarumma with a lovely fake shot, before he tucked the ball into the roof of the net.
