Pogba's ability to retain possession whilst using his strength to hold off the opposition was vital for the Red Devils at Turf Moor, but he found himself in some fiery incidents.

The 24-year-old picked up a yellow card in the 69th-minute for persistent fouling, and there was a moment during the match involving Pogba which United fans enjoyed.
