Watch: Paul Pogba sets up Man Utd goal with backwards header

Videos

Paul Pogba laid on Manchester United‘s opening goal against Granada with an improvised backwards header. 

Pogba impressed during United’s Premier League win at Tottenham last Sunday and was given another chance to impress during the second leg of the Europa League quarter-final.

And the France international only took five minutes to continue his recent run of good form.

Alex Telles whipped in a curled cross from the left flank in Pogba’s direction.

Faced with not being able to direct an effort on goal himself, the midfielder contorted his neck muscles and flicked a header back towards his team-mate Cavani.

Unable to waste such an opportunity, Cavani lashed home a left-footed volley to give United the lead on the night.
