The best Pogba makes history

The Frenchman and Bruno Fernandes shared the praise in United's league debut after giving 4 assists and scoring a hat-trick respectively.


Paul Pogba came from showing his best level with the French team in the Eurocup. But as France fell earlier than expected in the national team tournament, the Manchester United player has decided to extend his graceful state in the Premier League. The Red Devils' 5-1 victory against Leeds United on the first day of the league championship featured Bruno Fernandes, who scored a hat-trick (the first since arriving in Manchester), but also the French midfielder, who has made history with the Manchester United jersey: Paul Pogba has become the first footballer in the history of the Old Trafford team to deliver four assists in a single game.

History of the Red Devils, and also of English football. Pogba's four goal passes against Marcelo Bielsa's team also add him to a select club of players who did the same in the Premier League. Only Dennis Bergkamp (1999), José Antonio Reyes (2006), Cesc Fàbregas (2009), Emmanuel Adebayor (2012), Santi Cazorla (2013) and Harry Kane (2020) had achieved four assists in the same English league game, so now there will be seven with Paul Pogba. The French midfielder, the first Frenchman to achieve this feat, picks up the witness of the English forward of Tottenham, who gave four passes on goal against Southampton on the second day of the Premier League last season.

Y is that Pogba, in just one Premier League match, has managed to exceed the number of assists he gave last season. Although the French midfielder finished the 2020/2021 season with six passes on goal in all competitions, only three were in the league championship. 2017/2018, the second campaign since he returned to Manchester in 2016, continues to be the season with the best statistics in terms of goal passes, as in 37 games he achieved 12 assists. Now, after a spectacular start to what could be his final season at Manchester United, Pogba has a third of the job done.
