The Swedish striker came on as a late substitute in the 4-1 victory over Newcastle on Saturday, his first action since suffering a career-threatening knee ligament injury in April.
The win maintained Manchester City's eight point gap at the top of the table, but Pogba insists United have every chance of chasing down their neighbours. His return drew an emotional response from United manager Jose Mourinho, who had also been able to welcome back club record signing Pogba, who started against Newcastle, setting up an equaliser and scoring himself.
"When he was injured I chose to close my mouth, we can not be crying, we have to find solutions that we have". We know his quality.
"But we found then a certain balance and when they start finding, sometimes both, one opening the left and one on the mid-left between the striker and the left winger, it was the moment where we start creating more. It looks like he was not out, he come back with a great performance, really great performance, great influence in the game".
United will face FC Basle on Wednesday in the UEFA Champions League.
"Pogba is not my player, so I don't need to talk too much about him". However, it seems that the young player still has it all to learn in the Premier League.
"The second-half was ours". I think there is a possibility for winning everything. "Today was a game where we were doing really well, but as soon as they scored the second goal it was really hard".
As Pogba was leaving the field, and applauding a sated Stretford End after 70 minutes, Lukaku hammered the ball in from six yards for United's final goal and his first in seven matches.
Anthony Martial uploaded the following clip to his Instagram story after the game, as Jesse Lingard, Romelu Lukaku, and Paul Pogba danced and sang in celebration. "Especially in Zlatan's case, it was such a dramatic injury and to see him back is a great emotion", Mourinho added.
