Whenever the flamboyant France midfielder hits the net, victory is not far away for Jose Mourinho's charges

Paul Pogba was on target for Manchester United as they started their Premier League campaign on the right foot, and he wrote a little bit of history in the process. 

The France international is still on a high after playing a leading role in his nation's World Cup win in Russia earlier this summer. 

And he showed no signs of tiredness after those heroics as he got United rolling in the 2018-19 season.

Pogba converted a penalty past Kasper Schmeichel just two minutes into Friday's clash against Leicester City. 

United finally killed off the clash late in the game, when Luke Shaw sealed a 2-1 victory in a potentially tricky encounter to begin the season with three points. 

Fans should have known the win was in the bag, however: whenever Pogba hits the net, victory is not far behind. 

The midfielder has now scored in 11 Premier League games, all of which have ended in a United win. 

That run ties the record of former Liverpool winger Ryan Babel, who also led his side to 11 straight wins after hitting the net.

Now United supporters will be hoping their lucky charm keeps converting as they look to overthrow rivals Manchester City and take the title this season.
