Manchester United made it back-to-back wins in the Premier League on Saturday as they ended Watford's perfect start with a 2-1 victory.

Romelu Lukaku opened the scoring with his fourth of the season before Chris Smalling volleyed in a second to leave United looking comfortable at halftime.

Things turned nervy in the second half, however, when Andre Gray smashed one past David de Gea to give Watford a foothold.

But after Nemanja Matic was sent off in stoppage time, it was De Gea who had the last say in the game as he kept out a last-gasp header from Christian Kabasele to seal the three points.

The win means United have bounced back from their two consecutive defeats with two consecutive wins, ensuring that they're still not too far off the league's pacesetters.

It was a good win for United against a difficult team that saw many of their players take plaudits.

One of those was Paul Pogba, who impressed throughout the game - but one moment caught the eye, in particular.

Five minutes before halftime, with United 2-0 up and pushing to really seal things up, Pogba effortlessly volleyed a pin-point 40-yard pass to Alexis Sanchez that was simply incredible.

Manchester United beat Watford 2-1 at Vicarage Road.

It's a shame that it just resulted in a corner because it deserved a goal on the end of it, but it will undoubtedly go down as one of the passes of the season.

And fans went crazy over it, as you can see:

It's another demonstration of Pogba's huge talent; we know the Frenchman would be one of the most effective players on the planet if it all came together for him.

Very few players can pull off that pass like Pogba did - especially while making it look so nonchalant.

If he can just start doing it on a regular basis, United would have one of the best in the world - although we've been saying that for a while now.
