After a tough first season back in the Premier League, English football fans are starting to notice the brilliance of Paul Pogba.

Despite missing a number of games with a hamstring injury, the Manchester United midfielder has been in exemplary form, recording nine assists in his 13 appearances.

Against Stoke on Monday night in the Red Devils' 3-0 win, Pogba was deservedly voted man of the match and after, Jose Mourinho was full of praise for his midfield colossus.

"He was moving the ball fantastically well, with long passes changing the direction and creating problems for the opponent," he said.

"He had an assist and if he had scored the free-kick with the last shot of the game, it would be really a reward for him.

"I think he is happy with the way the team is playing and he's happy because the team is changing the profile and the profile is going more in his direction."

However, one Liverpool fan on Twitter has caused a huge stir by calling Pogba's assist record - which is the same as Kevin De Bruyne's - into question.

You can watch what he posted below.


To be fair he does have a point, with a number of his 'assists' not exactly involving much skill.

Naturally, United fans were livid with the criticism aimed at their superstar and replied in full force. Be warned, there may involve some bitterness.


You probably won't see a more interesting comment section on a tweet for quite a while. Steven Gerrard's slip and Sergio Aguero's last-minute winner feature heavily.

It is a certainly a heated debate, one which brings into question what should be rendered as an official assist.

Delivering an incisive through ball through the middle of the defence into a striker's path is certainly worthy, but simply playing a sideways pass for a player to score a solo goal probably shouldn't count.
