Paul Pogba is the number one trending term on Twitter right now, and it’s due to the first half brace he achieved at home against AFC Bournemouth. The Frenchman scored in the 5′ and 33′, with the second coming via a header (watch the video at this link). He’s now been involved in six of the ten goals (three scored, three assists) that have been scored since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over the team on an interim basis.

To put it quite frankly, he’s back to himself again- enjoying football and playing it in a free flowing manner. Take a look at the statistical comparison (in Premier League competition) of Pogba under Jose Mourinho versus Pogba under OGS:

It’s amazing what the most expensive transfer acquisition in England history can do when he’s allowed free expression. United got another goal from Marcus Rashford, before Nathan Ake got one on board for the visitors. The Red Devils currently lead the Cherries 3-1 at halftime.

For Pogba, he represents on an individual level what has happened overall with the team since the managerial switch was made.
