The Frenchman had been suspended for the opening match of the season after a yellow card he received in Italy was carried over.

Pogba played alongside Marouane Fellaini in midfield though he frequently went forward even as he made an energetic full debut.

He made more touches and more passes than any of his team-mates on that night and should have been disappointed that he did not crown his debut with a goal.

Former Swedish international Zlatan Ibrahimovic was the hero of the match as he scored twice on his home debut. His first goal came in the 26th minute when he headed home Wayne Rooney’s cross.

Then he scored again in the 52nd minute from a penalty kick as United picked their second win in a row.

Ibrahimovic is turning out to be a great asset for United since he signed on a free transfer from Paris St-Germain at the end of last season.

He also scored in the Community Shield win over Leicester City and during last weekend’s win at Bournemouth.

Champions Leicester City and runners-up Arsenal are still winless after they fought to a barren draw at the King Power Stadium on Saturday.

It was the second match for both sides and they were hoping to bounce back to winning ways after opening day losses.

Leicester were favourites to win this one what with a home ground advantage to boost and referee Mark Clattenburg was under pressure from the home fans for allegedly denying them a penalty.

The fox’s top striker Jamie Vardy was blunt upfront an Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech denied Riyad Mahrez. Liverpool was upset 2-0 by Burnley while Manchester City registered the biggest win of the weekend after thrashing Stoke City 4-1.
