Young Boys 0 Man Utd 3: Superb Pogba inspires Red Devils to dream Champions League opener

Spread the love
Skipper for the night in the absence of Antonio Valencia, Pogba steadied United’s early nerves on the artificial surface at the Stade de Suisse with two first half goals, one of them a penalty.

And in the second half his surging midfield run and pass set up the third scored by Anthony Martial for his first of the season.

Pogba’s class made sure Jose Mourinho’s side made a flying start to their Champions League campaign and emerge from their early season troubles with a third straight win.

Of all Untied’s players, Pogba looked at home on the unfamiliar surface and got a warm hand shake from Mourinho when he was given a breather with the game safe.

Martial was also on target in tonight’s win

But before his double strike, United had needed keeper David De Gea to produce two fine saves to prevent them falling behind.

Pogba’s double blast had clearly sucked much of the confidence and enthusiasm out of Young Boys and steaded United’s nerves.

But he had not finished with the Swiss yet, bursting burst through midfield to set up Martial for the goal that made the game safe.

Martial controlled the pass and cut in form the right to fire in a shot that took a deflection on its way past keeper David Von Ballmoos.

It was his first of the season and the three-goal cushion allowed Mourinho to make changes with Marouane Fellaini and Juan Mata coming on for Fred and Rashford.
