Paul Pogba admits he was unsure whether his opener for Manchester United in their 3-1 victory over West Ham would be allowed to stand.

West Ham led at the London Stadium through Tomas Soucek but Pogba hauled United level with a spectacular first-time shot from 25 yards.

The ball seemed to have curled out of play when United goalkeeper Dean Henderson punted it upfield to Bruno Fernandes in the build-up.

And Pogba said: “The kick from Dean was a bit… we didn’t know if it was out or in but we just went for it. I just went for it, I saw Bruno had the ball and I was free.

“I hit one in the first half, it didn’t go well, but the second time it went in and I’m really happy with this.”

Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford were also on target as United made it five wins out of five on the road this season.
