UEFA Champions League: Three Things we Learnt From Man United's 3-0 win Over Young Boys

Manchester United kicked off their Champions League campaign this season with a 3-0 away win over Young Boys in the group stage. Paul Pogba scored two goal and Marcus Rashford scored the third of the night.


Here are three things we learned from Manchester United's win over Young Boys.

3. Martial scores rare goal

Anthony Martial has not had a great time at Manchester United over the last couple of seasons, and was expected to leave in the summer. However, he has stayed and manager Jose Mouinho gave him a rare start. The Frenchman made it count and scored his first goal since January and will hope to get more chances as the campaign progresses. 

2. Tough start to the game

In the initial exchanges, it was Young Boys who had the upper hand, as United struggled to get their rhythm going on the artificial pitch. It was the Switzerland side who came close to scoring, with goalkeeper David de Gea twice tipping shots over the bar to keep the clean sheet. While other English teams have had trouble here, United did not let the difficult start get to them.

1. Pogba's performance

Paul Pogba scored two goals on the night, showing composure in the first to open himself up to get some space for the shot. He took the penalty duties as well, despite missing once in the season already. Pogba also provided the assist to Martial's goal, rounding off an excellent night for the Frenchman.
