The Red Devils were looking to win successive Premier League games to build momentum under interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer following his appointment last week.
Manchester United were 5-1 winners against Cardiff City in Wales in Solskjaer’s first game in charge of the 20-time English champions last weekend.
Nemanja Matic broke the deadlock in the 28th minute to get Manchester United off to a good start in the first home fixture under the former Norwegian striker.
Solskjaer has wasted no time reinstating the France star into his starting line up and the World Cup winner doubled the home side’s lead in the 64th minute.
Pogba capped a fine performance with his second goal in the Old Trafford fixture to suggest the club record signing has a new lease of life under Solskjaer.
Former Spurs striker Lineker took to Twitter to provide a suitable headline for Pogba’s performance in a 3-1 win over Huddersfield at Old Trafford on Boxing Day.
Lineker wrote on Twitter: “Pogba strikes. There’s your caption.”
The Spurs legend had earlier posted his reaction to Matic’s opening goal in the 3-1 win over Huddersfield.
Lineker posted on social media: “It’s all in auto-Matic for Ole Gunnar Solskjær. @ManUtd are one up.”
