Pogba set a Premier League record during Man United’s clash with Southampton

Man United vs Southampton

Manchester United and Southampton would face off at St Mary’s on Sunday afternoon.

United dominated proceedings with Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes looking especially threatening.

The away side’s dominance in the second half was rewarded after 55 minutes, when Paul Pogba poked the ball into the path of Mason Greenwood who drew the score level:
