Paul Pogba's attacking prowess was on full display once again as Manchester United took on Chelsea in the FA Cup Fifth Round clash. Having struggled at the beginning of the season, the 25-year-old Frenchman's rejuvenation under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer continued in Monday night's encounter.
Firstly, Pogba set up Ander Herrera to open the scoring for Manchester United with a header inside the 31st minute. The ex-Juventus star then ensured that his side had a two-goal advantage before the half time break by getting on the scoresheet himself.
Armed with the ball in the midfield, Pogba located Marcus Rashford on the right flank with a low ball. The midfielder then run the full length into Chelsea's penalty area to head home Rashford's cross for Manchester United's second of the night. Watch the goal below:

In his ascendency, Paul Pogba has now scored 14 goals across all competitions for Manchester United this season while providing 10 assists. Currently, the World Cup winner has been directly involved in 15 goals in 12 matches across all competitions under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (nine goals, six assists).
Watch Pogba in the build-up for that goal. Moves over from the left, and creates a four-on-four within Chelsea's half. Quick pass out to Rashford who catches the defender flat footed, Mata angles his run outwards to stretch the defenders, Pogba moves in, cross, goal.

He has, as a result, managed six more than he did in 20 games under Jose Mourinho this season (five goals, four assists). In total, Paul Pogba's goal and assists tally since joining Manchester United now stands at 28 apiece.
