Reaction: Paul Pogba Marked His Manchester United Return In Style Tonight
By Arthur James O'Dea

The return of Paul Pogba to Manchester United's starting XI this evening flavoured the pre-match discussion ahead of the arrival of Newcastle United.

While some were querying where the relationship between Jose Mourinho and Newcastle United's Rafa Benitez ten years after they last faced each other on the sideline, it didn't take Paul Pogba long to reclaim the bulk of public interest for himself.

United started slowly however. Having not conceded at Old Trafford all season before this evening, United found themselves 1-0 down within 15 minutes - Dwight Gayle making the most of Victor Lindelof slipping.

However, as the half progressed the Frenchman began to exert his influence. A perfectly delivered cross enabled Anthony Martial to equalise and the love for Pogba was quickly forthcoming.

Taking the lead before half-time through a Chris Smalling header, United's third, predictably enough, came from Pogba.

Although Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford deserve the bulk of the credit, Pogba's return had coincided with a United performance that showed plenty of promise.

With the game all but sewn up at this point, Pogba was replaced after 70 minutes.

As his teammates saw out a comfortable victory, United will now look toward a Wednesday night clash with Basel where they can potentially seal their place in the last 16 of the Champions League.
