Jamie Carragher lavished praise on Paul Pogba following his fine display in Manchester United’s 3-0 win over Stoke City in the Premier League on Monday night.

The French midfielder was in top form for the Red Devils as he helped them secure the three points and close the gap to Manchester City at the top of the table down to 12 points.

Antonio Valencia opened the scoring for Manchester United in the ninth minute with a superb left-footed strike.

And Anthony Martial made it 2-0 in the 38th minute with a superb finish.

Romelu Lukaku then put the result beyond doubt when he fired home from close range in the 72nd minute.

Pogba was in top form for the Red Devils and Liverpool FC legend Carragher was quick to praise the France international for his display.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Carragher said: “We’ve got to mention Paul Pogba.

“He was the best player on the pitch with his passing. He was outstanding.”

The win left Manchester United in second place in the Premier League table and 12 points behind runaway leaders Manchester City.

Manchester United, who ended up in sixth place in the table last term, return to action on Saturday afternoon with a trip to Turf Moor to take on Burnley.
