 Paul Pogba kept his place for Man United in their Premier League win at Sheffield United and played an instrumental role in two of their goals.

Pogba claimed an assist at Sheffield United

Paul Pogba drew praise from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after his talismanic performance in another Manchester United away win.

Pogba started alongside Nemanja Matic at Sheffield United and assisted Anthony Martial's first-half goal before his showboating sparked the move for Marcus Rashford's eventual winner.

Solskjaer recalled Pogba, 27, for the Manchester derby on Saturday and could retain the Frenchman again for Leeds United's first Premier League visit to Old Trafford in nearly 17 years.

Despite his demotion to the bench for the Champions League defeat at RB Leipzig, Pogba has started in United's last three league fixtures and Solskjaer lauded his defensive and attacking merits in Sheffield.

"We know his strength in the air as well," Solskjaer said. "We knew he was going to be important for us on set-plays, goal kicks, and long kicks and he won more or less every single header, it seemed.

"His vision, creativity, we also want. Paul's responded really well to the work he's been doing, he's fit now and excellent performance."

United have won their last 10 league away games - a club record - and in their six triumphs this term at Brighton, Newcastle, Everton, Southampton, West Ham and Sheffield United they have conceded the first goal

The victory at Bramall Lane ended on a frantic note after David McGoldrick scrappily scored to make it 3-2 but Solskjaer expected testing periods against the league's basement club.

"I don't have any frustrations at the moment," he added. "We got three points from a difficult game at a difficult place, it could've been more comfortable at the end bit you don't expect it to be comfortable.

"The goals we scored were excellent and once in a while you have to accept the opposition have got weapons and armoury that can hurt you, and Sheffield United certainly have."
