Manchester United haven’t had much of the ball through the first half of today’s FA Cup match against Chelsea, and when they have gotten possession they haven’t managed to produce very many crisp passages of play. They lead 2-0 at half time, though, because they have Paul Pogba.

Pogba has the skill, vision, power, and speed necessary to be the best player on the field in every game he plays in. He is that today.
