“We rarely do offsides, we must follow the run. We had not woken up but still a good reaction.
“Stunning strike by Paul and we had some good chances to finish the game off but of course we did not take them.

Paul Pogba himself was also excited after the match.
“It was a difficult game and a key win,” he said.
“We knew it won’t be easy. They press well and stayed compact. We had to come back from behind and we needed to win.
“I played the ball well. I didn’t expect it to score with my left foot like that.
“It was beautiful and am important win. It is not my favourite goal ever but it was magical.”
