Two converted penalties by Paul Pogba on Saturday gave Manchester United a tense victory against an excellent West Ham side.
Pogba scored his 12th Premier League goal of the season’s campaign against the Hammers on Saturday after he successfully converted a first-half penalty kick.
Robert Snodgrass had brought down Juan Mata in the box at about the 18th minute, and Pogba did justice to the free shot, to give the Red Devils an early lead.
The French International went on to score his brace of the game in the 80th minute, again from the penalty spot.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s boys would go on to win the match 2-1, earning a valuable three points to keep hopes alive for a spot in the top-four.
