With the right kind of tempo and movement around him, Pogba glides down the middle, eating up the turf, in a kind of way which makes him the game's dictator - the guy beating the drum.
With manager Jose Mourinho's job reportedly on the line, Manchester United finally discovered their missing spirit to battle back from two goals down to beat Newcastle United 3-2 at Old Trafford on Saturday.
Mourinho said the team had a discussion at half-time, and although they did not promise to win the game, they did vow to play as well as they could.
Jose Mourinho's position at the helm of Manchester United is not under immediate threat, senior figures at the club have said.
When it was put to the Portuguese that this kind of run for a club of this size is not acceptable, he said: "Yes, I accept (it is not good enough)".
"Because", Neville added, "if this is true and it's broken the day before it's going to happen and he's going to be sacked after the game or at the weekend it's an absolute disgrace".
Hinting back to an issue that has plagued Manchester United on a number of occasions over the past couple of seasons, a vast portion of fans will undoubtedly be left wondering how much longer that hotel reservation will be kept going.
There is a determination among the Glazers to see Mourinho emerge from his current difficulties on the pitch, however, especially with no credible replacement available. "For me, it's not easy too, but I think life is made of experiences and some are new and some are déjà vu, but this is new".
The former World Cup victor could also be key in unlocking the potential of fellow French man Paul Pogba, whom Mourinho reportedly fell out with amidst a string of poor performances.
"I'm furious at thinking this has broken out". I absolutely love it to death. I'm not turning on my football club, but I have to say, something has to change; and it isn't the manager.
It was a much improved performance in the second half by the home side and former Newcastle striker Shearer says the fact they turned things around shows that the players are also to blame for recent form, along with the manager and Woodward.
