Manchester United battled their way past Tottenham in an enthralling Premier League showdown at Wembley on Sunday.

Marcus Rashford was the match winner for Solskjaer’s side, with the England international continuing his recent goal glut with another in north London.

Rashford will take the plaudits following his Manchester United heroics.

But Paul Pogba, who was a powerful colossus in the middle of the park, deserves praise too.

It was this fixture last year where Pogba’s issues at United started - when he was substituted by the Portuguese for tactical reasons for the first time.

Having taken issue with Jose Mourinho’s tactics in a 2-0 defeat to Tottenham, the France international then found himself cold-shouldered.

Those problems, as many know, never went away.

Pogba and Mourinho’s feud derailed United’s start to this season.

And when Mourinho was sacked in December, the France international responded with the dodgiest-of-timed social media posts.

“You can do one as well,” was how Gary Neville reacted to Pogba’s decision to upload a picture of himself smirking.

But the United legend may very well have changed his tune now.

Because Pogba’s road to redemption has come full circle. On a ground where his problems started, it was inevitable he would have some say in the match’s decisive moment.

His assist for Rashford’s goal was so good it even drew praise from Graeme Souness. The Sky Sports pundit has been accused of hating Pogba but even he could not resist the urge to hail the World Cup winner.

“When you do win it and have players with the pace of [Anthony] Martial and Rashford, you’ve got someone like Pogba who can deliver on a pass,” Souness said.

“I don’t know what [Kieran] Trippier is thinking here, that’s a poor pass.

“Two-touches to get it out of his [Pogba’s] feet here.

“One, two, he knows what he wants to do with it once he gets it out of his feet and Rashford’s on his way already.

“That is classic counter-attacking football.

“Sloppy play as we said from Trippier, one, two, out my feet, and he can do that, he’s [Pogba's] got the quality to do that.”

Pogba is back.

But whether United can maintain their stunning form in the weeks ahead remains to be seen.
