  • All smiles after long-term injury

WHAT HAPPENED? Pogba sustained a knee injury in pre-season and underwent surgery. He missed the World Cup as a result but has finally featured again for Juventus after returning to the club from Manchester United last summer.

Juventus took a 3-2 lead over Torino shortly after Pogba's introduction and extended the advantage in the 80th minute when French team-mate Adrien Rabiot found the back of the net. Juve held on for a 4-2 victory that moves them within 10 points of the Champions League places.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: The midfielder appeared in great spirits before and during the game, having been eager to be on a football pitch again in competitive action.
