Man United 3 – Huddersfield 1
Manchester United’s winning streak continued on Boxing Day against Huddersfield.
After smashing Cardiff City 5-1 last weekend, Man United beat Huddersfield Town 3-1 at Old Trafford.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side took the lead against the Terriers through Nemanja Matic in the first half.
After the break Paul Pogba stole all the headlines.
After a hat-trick of assists in the Cardiff game, Pogba scored twice for United on Wednesday.
Paul Pogba’s goal celebrations
It’s amazing how Paul Pogba now looks like a new player since the departure of Jose Mourinho from the Theatre of Dreams.
Not only is his body language far more positive, but his contribution to the side is much more telling too.
After scoring against Huddersfield, Pogba produced two eye-catching celebrations.
After slamming home his first of the game just after the hour mark, Pogba entertained the crowd with a dance.
Those set of moves finished with a trademark dab from the World Cup winner.

After Pogba scored his second of the game – a fine shot from distance – the midfielder just stood still lapping up the applause.
Pogba’s reaction to scoring reminded some of how Eric Cantona celebrated a memorable chip against Sunderland from back in the day.

Phil Neville on Paul Pogba
When it came to analysing Pogba’s performance against Huddersfield on Match of the Day, Phil Neville made a bold statement:
They had the best player on the pitch and probably the best midfielder in Europe on his day in Paul Pogba who has had a disappointing, horrendous last 18 months at the club because of the fall-out with the manager.
Is Pogba the best midfielder in Europe? Really?
Some of the stuff Neville has just said there…
‘Paul Pogba who on is day is the best midfielder in Europe’
‘This is the United culture, Pogba, Lingard, Rashford and Gomes, playing the kids’ – that’s 25 year old Pogba (who’s 26 in March) and 26 year old Lingard.
