Paul Pogba's Premier League return was highly anticipated this summer, when he joined Manchester United for a world-record £89 million fee in August.

The France international has not just brought more added quality to Jose Mourinho's squad, but also a memorable goal celebration along with it.

Pogba certainly isn't short of confidence and is clearly a big character in the United dressing room.

And the 23-year-old has seemingly set a small trend in English football, as exemplified during Wycombe Wanderers' 1-0 win over Exeter City on Saturday.

Adebayo Akinfenwa joined the Chairboys this summer, after being released by AFC Wimbledon at the end of last season, and scored a late strike on Saturday to earn his club three vital points to keep his side well clear of the drop zone.

But clearly Akinfenwa has been keeping a close eye on Mourinho's Red Devils so far this season, as he and teammates Anthony Stewart and Aaron Pierre recreated the celebration which has been performed by Pogba and Jesse Lingard, at times, this campaign.

However, that is near enough where the two clubs' similarities end. While Wycombe are currently in the bottom half of the League Two table, with just four league wins to their name, United are currently chasing a place in the top four of the Premier League, having spent around £145 million this summer.

Pogba, though, will be hoping to create endless opportunities to unleash the iconic celebration this season, by producing more goals of his own. The Frenchman has scored just once this campaign; in a comfortable 4-1 home win over Premier League champions Leicester City last week.

Has Paul Pogba proved why he is worth £89 million so far this season? Have your say in the comment box below.
