The Ole Gunnar Solskjaer era rolled into Old Trafford for their first time on Boxing Day as Manchester United hosted Huddersfield Town.

There was a lot of anticipation for the game after a 5-1 win over Cardiff City - was it a one-off or is this genuinely a different United side?

Well, events at Old Trafford suggest that Solskjaer really has changed this team into one playing with freedom and energy, just like the fans have been crying out for.

Nemanja Matic opened the scoring just before the half-hour mark to send United into halftime with a 1-0 lead.

Paul Pogba then continued his renaissance under Solskjaer with a brace in the second half, and while a late Matias Jorgensen goal may have taken a bit of the shine off, United still left with a 3-1 win.

And Pogba, unsurprisingly, took the plaudits for a brilliant game that saw him secure the victory.

The Frenchman was perhaps the most anticipated player after Jose Mourinho left the club - would he see an instant return to form as some predicted or was Mourinho right all along?

So far, the former looks to be true and Pogba appears to be loving life under Solskjaer and away from his former coach.

Paul Pogba scored twice against Huddersfield.

And if his performance didn't show that off, the way he celebrated certainly did.

Fan footage caught Pogba dancing in front of the crowd after the rest of the team had finished celebrating and it's safe to say he looks like he's having a lot more fun these days.

Check out Pogba's dance below:

Unsurprisingly, the fans are loving Pogba's attitude right now and you can see some of their reaction to the footage here:

If it wasn't exciting enough that United are playing exciting football, Pogba really looks to be getting back to his best - and that should worry the rest of the Premier League.
