The opening weekend of the Premier League season saw many of England’s top sides cruise to comfortable victories, but none more so than Manchester United after their dominating effort against Leeds United.
The Red Devils scored five goals and completely controlled Marcelo Bielsa’s side from start to finish with Bruno Fernandes pacing that attack with three of those goals.
However, the story of the match was Paul Pogba and his four assists, which put him into exclusive Premier League company. In fact, Pogba became the latest and only the seventh all-time in England’s top flight to record four assists in a match.
Pogba’s performance shouldn’t be surprising given his natural talents and his pedigree of shining at both Juventus and Man United, but his strong early-season start bodes extremely well for the Old Trafford side.
Pogba played a significant role in France’s midfield during the 2018 World Cup, which Les Bleus went on to win, and in order for United to have similar success they’ll need him to be a cog in the center of the park.
Against Leeds, Pogba completed the most significant passes with five, according to WhoScored.
