Paul Pogba showed why the top European teams are interested in him as he orchestrated a 2-0 win for Juventus against Chievo Verona, sending the defending champion provisionally eight points clear at the top of the Serie A table on Sunday.

Pogba scored a stunning opener on the hour mark and was instrumental in his team’s second, netted by Stephan Lichtsteiner.
