Paul Pogba netted the all-important goal for Manchester United against AC Milan, and what a fine finish it was.
Pogba had been on the pitch just two minutes – after entering the action at half-time – and our no.6 fired home with aplomb from a tight angle.
The Reds had some defending to do as the clock ticked down, but to a man United did it brilliantly, with Dean Henderson’s superb block from a point-blank Zlatan Ibrahimovic header being a standout moment.
Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw was full of praise for matchwinner Paul Pogba after the 1-0 triumph at San Siro.
Luke Shaw was once again part of a United defence that stood firm against Italian giants AC Milan on Thursday evening.
Alongside Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof and Aaron Wan-Bisska, with Dean Henderson between the sticks, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s defence kept a clean sheet for the sixth time in seven games.
Following the 1-1 result at Old Trafford last week, the Reds had to score to make it to the Europa League quarter-finals and half-time substitute Paul Pogba got our crucial winner only two minutes after entering the pitch.
Speaking to the BT Sport and MUTV after the win against the Rossoneri, our. 23 delivered an honest assessment after a brilliant result in Italy.
“Obviously I’m very happy that we’re through,” Shaw said before analysing our performance at the iconic stadium.
“I think the lads will agree, we weren’t good at all. In the first half, we were awful. The first 10-15 minutes, we started well, kept control of the ball. It’s like a switch. We turned off and we were very sloppy and kept giving away stray balls, bringing pressure on ourselves.”
